Registration temporarily suspended.
« on: June 12, 2011, 02:28:35 PM »

Due to the massive amount of spam registrants recently, registration is temporarily restricted to approval only.
Any registration that appears in the tools available will be rejected without prejudice.

ok, registration is totally disabled.

we will try again in a little while when we work out how to get legit registrations through...
100-200 bogus registrations a day is somewhat ridiculous to handle and filter manually.

Alternative is to fully open registration, but then we'd be removing masses of spam messages :(
... and anyone who is 'watching' a topic will cop masses of notifications.

Registrations back on, but restricted.
The implementation of stopforumspam api makes life so much easier.
