    I came across a possible bug on my install. If a user tries to register using a BuddyPress page name as their username such as “members” or “activity” they are given the following error message:

    “Only lower case numbers and letters allowed”.

    I would have thought the error message should be something along the lines of “Username not available”.

    Not really a bug though. Just needs an improved message and check, open a trac ticket detailing issue.

    It’s not a bug is it. But what would you call an issue like that? a usability issue maybe?

    More a UX one really. However the message is also incorrect in stating ‘only lowercase letters’ as uppercase are accepted.

    I’m testing a patch to improve the messages.
