ERROR: Invalid Username - Is it?

Posted by Tom on 1292977278
I put in:

Display Name: tester
Login Name: terster

(the extra r is meant to be there)

And get:

ERROR: Invalid Username

So what does this mean, is the display name or is the login name invalid, because the end user sees is the username is but non of those those two options on the form are called username. Confusing to the end user, its not consistent.

Also what is an invalid, is the name taken, is it not longer enough, to long or is it a reserved name or a banned name? Perhaps the system could suggest an alternative as well?

It really doesn't tell the end user anything at all so how would they know how to proceed?
