Registration Temporarily Suspended

Postby iain » Mon Dec 15, 2014 2:45 pm

I've currently disabled registrations as we're being inundated by spam bot users. I've tried changing the method we use to deter bots but it hasn't appreciably slowed them down.

Whilst I look for a new method of detecting/deterring bots registrations will remain closed.

There are currently 1100 accounts that are on the system that have 0 posts on the WSF forum. Some of them are obviously bots but it's difficult to tell without checking individually, this will take way too much time.

If you're reading this and have 0 posts, now would be a good time to start contributing as I'm going to delete all accounts that registered on or before 1st December 2014 who have no posts on the forum. I'll do this before the end of 2014.

If your account is deleted you will be able to re-register (eventually).

Hugs
