on my site i have been getting slammed by user registrations from random names and filling my user table i get around 3-5 a day

my solution i alter the registration i changed all $username to $uname
Code:


inputtype= "text" name="uname" size="30" maxlength="25" class="required" minlength="3"


i know it isnt just as simple as renaming this part
i followed the registration to the activation and used uname for all username refernces lets see if this stops it or it is in fact an actual person doing it or a bot i think its a bot as im getting things like this in my sentinel log

Code:
http://www.nunuke.co.uk/modules.php?name=Your_Account&username=linguicle&gfx_check=&random_num=79987&redirect=&mode=&f=&t=&op=login&submit=Login


http://www.nunuke.co.uk/modules.php?name=Your_Account&random_num=153464&gfx_check=&username=linguicle&user_email=idoeh31@gmail.com&op=finish&submit=Finish

http://www.nunuke.co.uk/modules.php?name=Your_Account&username=linguicle&user_email=idoeh31@gmail.com&gfx_check=&random_num=153464&op=new_user&submit=New_User



i think in raven nuke the YA could do with an admin option to rename certain form fields for example
input name="username"
input name="user_email"

becomes
input name="adminschoiceusername"
input name="adminschoiceemail"

after the admin has set them via the admin panel

or another way to go is to maybe use "throw away field names" on each registration a certain field uses a random name generated on registration start and only used on that registration

since i posted this i have 7 new users in the users_temp as they cant activate
so i am redoing the functions for user reg for my new site

it maybe worth thinking about for other sites doing this to
especially here as i noticed afew names sneaking through in the new users

Check out Guardian's site - Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! - he is working on a wonderful enhancement to end the madness...

im waiting for the release of it Smile
but i still think that raven nuke needs this addressed
for example change
case:
'new user'

to
case:
'register'

as site guardian wont be used by every user of rn
