New User Registrations

Postby John » Mon Nov 09, 2015 7:47 pm

Following the recent updates to the site I have been manually reviewing and activating new user registrations to avoid spambots, unfortunately this has often resulted in anything up to a 72 hour delay before a new account can be reviewed and activated. I have installed a script today that will hopefully eliminate most of the spambot problems and prevent the long waits for activation, this is achieved by checking the details of a new user registrations against a number of popular anti-spambot databases.

Note: It is important that new users must supply a valid e-mail address so a confirmation link can be sent, without a valid e-mail address you will not be able to activate your account.

Update - 14 Nov 2015: If you are incorrectly identified as a spammer and are unable to register, please contact me and I will get you registered.
