Oops! (Accidentally screwed up forum registrations)
« on: April 23, 2006, 02:45:34 pm »
I'm trying to block the spambots that have been registering like mad lately, only I suck at PHP and succeeded in blocking all forum account registrations for a few days. I hope this hasn't inconvenienced anyone. Your registration should work now.

Note: Just so we're clear, this has nothing to do with your convention registration. Don't worry!

That reminds me I was going to ask if you need, want or care if forum members report the new accounts that are from bots.  I often look at the profile whenever I see a new member (to see if they are from my town or have an aunt) and half of them lately have random names and the home page is a shady business.

Most of the recent ones (which would be most of them in general) have been taken care of, their accounts are banned, and I've collected them in a list in a moderators' forum. I just need to get around to deleting them. Thanks though. Definitely point out new ones by sending a PM to me or any other moderator or administrator (green or orange username) that you see online.
