ATTENTION: New user registrations

Post by Hippie459MN » May 17, 2013 4:10 pm

Due to a huge number of registrations over the last few weeks from non-human registrations, we will be setting new registration to approval by an Admin so it might take a day or so for your account to be approved.

This will not be a permanent thing, only until we can get a few things in place to hopefully stop these spam accounts. I have notice a repeating pattern with them when they register so hopefully it will be a simple fix. Until then though, all future new member registration will have to be approved.

Sorry for any issues this may cause but it will keep the spammers away for now.

Also, a new feature has been added to the registration page for new registering members. You must now enter a legitimate reason for signing up. For REAL humans this will not be an issue but the bots tend to just enter random text and numbers so it will be easy to spot the fakers.

Hopefully this will help weed out the bad from the good a little better,
