New User Settings 1

This section of the Mystic BBS Configuration System allows the SysOp to configure the first of several sections of settings that apply to new users when registering to join the BBS. Here you can decide if you want to accept new user registrations, assign their initial security level and more.

This example screen displays the standard 'out of the box' settings that ship with the default installation.

Allow New Users

If this option is set to 'No', Mystic BBS will not accept new user accounts. Instead, the display file CLOSED.XXX will be displayed and the call will be terminated.

Security

This option is used to set what security level a new user will be upgraded to after successfully completing the new user login procedure.

Password

This option is used to define a new user password. If a password has been defined, a caller who attempts to log in as a new user will be prompted for the new user password before they will be able to continue to log in as a new user.

New User Feedback

Use USA Phone

If this option is set to Yes, Mystic BBS will use USA format phone numbers (XXX-XXX-XXXX).

User Name Format

Sets how Mystic will handle the formatting of the alias and real user name data entered by a new user. There are four options;

  • As Typed - Allow alias and user name to be saved as typed by the user.
  • Upper - Force the alias and user name to be saved in UPPERCASE.
  • Lower - Force the alias and user name to be saved in lower case.
  • Proper - Capitalize the first letter of each word that is typed while forcing all other letters as lower case.

Start Msg Group

Start the new user in message group number # - if this is set to 0 then the first available message group will be used.

Start File Group

Start the new user in file group number # - if this is set to 0 then the first available file group will be used.
