Deleted Usernames Protector enables your XenForo forum to disallow the registration of new user accounts with usernames of old, deleted user accounts for a configurable amount of time.
Every time a user account will be deleted the username will be memorized and new registrations with the same username will be denied.
If an admin decides to create an new account with a memorized protected old username or if an admin wants to change the username of an existing account to a memorized protected old username a warning will appear and the usage of the protected username has to be confirmed by the admin.
There is an admin option to allow you to specify how long deleted usernames should be memorized until new registrations with the nusername won't be denied any more. You can even opt to never allow deleted usernames to be registered again.
This add-on works well with all third-party add-ons that allow users to change their usernames themself. It will deny the usage of protected, deleted usernames even then.
Deleted Usernames Protector has been written with optimal performance (even at large sites) as the primary goal while keeping an eye on accessibility as well. It is a robust and well coded add-on intended for professional XenForo forums.
This add-on is compatible with Xenforo 1.2.x (tested with XenForo 1.2.5) and XenForo 1.3.x (tested with XenForo 1.3.0) and XenForo 1.4.x.
