Registration Temporarily Suspended

Post by RJ » Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:06 pm

Due to an increase in spam bots over the past few days I have been forced to temporarily suspend accepting new registrations while I investigate ways to block spammers from registering and flooding the forums.

That sucks RJ, though that is a wise move to make; I had this same problem with an old forum of mine several years ago, the server seemed to have an issue keeping Russian spambots from registering, so like yourself, I disabled registration... which really didn't hurt too awful much, since it had been a long time since I last had a legit new member, and it didn't look like I'd be having any more any time soon.

And I thought these phpBB forums were supposed to be oh-so-superior to other services. :P

I re-opened registration a few days ago and so far there have been no spambots. Keep your fingers crossed.
