New User Registration

Postby KCPowercat » Fri Oct 26, 2012 9:32 pm

New Users are currently not able to register. The SPAM had gotten out of control, hopefully this will curtail it for a bit. If you really really want to register and are a real person, feel free to send a tweet to @kcrag and somebody will take care of you.

Sorry for the PITA...hopefully disabling registrations for awhile will let the spam bots pass us over.

Think it's safe to open it back up?

I think a spambot on Twitter asked me to loosen up our restrictions, so I'd lean towards no.

Open it back up and give it a shot. If it comes back then close or find a solution. Does the phpBB software support forum have a solution, maybe some extra verification methods to add?

The first post says @kcrag, but @theKCrag seems to be the active Twitter account. That could be why no one's even asking to join?

I honestly didn't even know this is how we were doing it. I don't think anyone has asked to join.

I just added that (incorrectly) as I figured some human if they wanted to join bad enough could ask that way.

I'll look into a better solution today. This is ridiculous.

Have bots learned how to use American slang?

We're getting tons of spambots signing up every day; apparently it is possible to sign up. I assumed signups were enabled.

Who's in charge of new accounts? I see that Carnell Manning is our latest use from what April? Is everyone anonymous now?
