Forum Security Announcement

Due to the recent problem with spambots, user registration will now require administrator validation. Once you register, please send an email to [email removed] containing your display name so that I know you are not a spambot, and I will validate your account.

Hopefully this is temporary. We should eventually be able to prevent bots from registering and posting on the forum at all.

For an example of how this has helped the forums, take a look at the list of validating members (link broken). These members have not been approved because they did not request validation.

UPDATE: This policy ended a long time ago. Please don't send me any more emails. Honestly, I hadn't checked that email account in nearly three years.

I stopped doing it because it was a real pain in the arse. Seriously. Do you have any idea how many people sign up for this site? Far more than we actually see, let me tell you. Anyway, we're close to a real solution now, so I'm not worried about it.

This is perhaps the most ironic post I have ever seen!
A spambot posting in a thread about stoping spambots!!!
"Oh no!"
*Looks at irony meter*
"SHE'S GONA BLOW!!!"
*dives under cover*
*watches spambot be roasted from super intense heat of irony core exploding*
:cool:

(Another kill!)

Hai !

Im Artix, and I am not a spam bot...

but the more important thing is, should i message you off the same email I used to register? or any email is fine, cos i kinda forgot the pass for that email >.>

btw you guys should just censor words like cheap, viagra, .com, etc etc

it might solve everything Gasp

actually screw that, give some of your friends the links spambots post here, and have them flash incinerate the sites?

Administrator validation of user accounts hasn't been in effect for over two years. It was too much for me to handle.
