Site Address and Username Conflict?

  1. I'm using the action "Update User" to allow an already logged in user to "create a new site" on my multisite network. However, I've run in to a minor quirk: If I use the username as the Site address I get a validation error, "Sorry, that site is reserved!"

    I created a quick screencast and uploaded the (unlisted) video here:

    Of course I can use any "Site Address" other than the username and it works fine. Has anyone run into this before? Thoughts?

    How can I solve this conflict? Thanks!

  2. If anyone is interested, I scooted around the problem by allows users to sign up with their email address as the "username". See:

    ...which means there will never be a conflict when they go to choose a sub-domain for their network site.

    If you still require assistance with this please open a new support ticket or a priority support ticket if you are a developer license holder. Thank you.
