Thanks for the reply,

That is looking like my only solution at the moment. Would be a shame to go backwards from my current setup which works very well (apart from shared logins).

Re: User Manager Feature request - sticky please?

It would be very handy to be able to apply rate limits to users that signed up by the automatic signup page.

An option in "customers -> signup options" to apply the rate limit to each user as they signed up would be ideal.
