New feature : Self activation of accounts stopped.
Posted by webmaster on 2012/10/11 13:43:58 (2450 reads)

I have chosen to set the system to moderated account activation, that means that I have to personally verify all account activations.

I opened the automatic system again yesterday and we got on enew member and 40+ accounts from spammers in 24h, so now it's off again, with me as a moderator this time...

If you have questions you can mail me at

Yeah, unfortunately it's probably the only way. We have to personally screen each member on a forum I run too

but 40+ spammers in 1 day....... DAMN!

A railroad forum I just joined had a similar personal registration process due to the spam plague.
