Ok not sure this is directly a Yii question but maybe someone here can help.
When it comes to reserving usernames in an app what is the best approach. I know that in using forum software there is generally an easy interface in the admin space to list words (including the use of wildcards) that can not be used. I don’t currently have one loaded to see how they do it though.
I would like to do the same and currently use both yii-user and yii-user-management. I don’t know if I just need to fill in db entries which seems ridiculous creating a bunch of bogus records, but maybe that is how it is done?
I guess I can do something along these lines. Data integrity within the db is also important so maybe I can create a table specifically to hold these values and provide that reference point to the code.
