Subject: plugin for blocking/allowing registrations with particular email extentions and/or user names
Hi all,

I would like to be able to only allow users who register with email addresses other than a certain list (e.g., gmail.com, hotmail.com, etc). Would it be possible to build in something like that?

Also, I get a lot of fake registrations with ehm, quite peculiar, user names (often refering to particular male body parts...). It would be nice to block these as well using some kind of lookup list of censored words.

Having these two options available would save me a lot of time having to delete these registrations from our Dokuwiki every day.

Cheers, Arno Schoenmakers

Hi all,

My second problem can be solved for a large part with the Captcha Plugin I found today; most of those entries appear to be made by bots or something, and this should help stop to these. Intentional human registrations with uncommon usernames are not that frequent, I assume (time will tell...)
