I want to bring to your attention the usernames issue (at least I consider it being an issue).

I've seen lots of members with usernames promoting email, websites and (probably in the future) explicit private contact methods (like: TG:username)
I want to ask you if it wouldn't be a good practice to remove these users from the forum and send them to make a proper username that doesn't promote anything?

Eventually added as a rule?

@Babak @CyberDeviL @TassieNZ @medw1311 @tuton012 @ELLIO7 @patrocle

Example:

And there are a few more promoting websites which I cannot find for now
 
I saw facebook posting on Babiato so hell yeah!
 
Yes also brands, anything with Babiato or admin etc in the name.
 
a rule can be implemented not sure if they can change username after the account is created so a rule will be useless unless they read the rule before creating an account or created a module at sign up that don't let them use any email as a username
 
Rules can be accessed by a non-registered user without any limitation. Also at registration users have to check the box where they agree with terms and privacy policy

With Xenforo you can create a list of banned words for usernames.

Also, not sure if an individual can change a username, but I know @Babak can do it.
 
There is an addon for XF that allows the usernames to be changed by the user but I won't recommend to be implemented as they will abuse of it and change their usernames more often than their socks.

90% all the user doesn't read the rules at signup they just want to leech. the best right now is the addon that @medw1311 suggested it will be the best choice

If I remember rightly it's not even an addon but part of the XF Core..

yes in xenforo can add User name validation
  • The words or phrases in this field will not be allowed in any part of user names. Put each word or phrase on its own line. Entering 'tar' will disallow 'star' and 'tarnish' etc.

:
