New account registration has been turned off for a while. Over the past week or so we've been bombarded with spam accounts and its just too much work to keep deleting them. If you've got a friend who wants to join, let us know and we'll figure out how to add them. Unfortunately I don't have the time, resources, or knowledge to fix this right now. Anyone with PHPBB experience feel free to step up.

Just tried opening registration again, we'll see if the crap floods in again or if we're clear...

Crap. What can we do? I know leaving it open is a bloodbath, but we sure can't get any new members with closed registration. :(

That's about all we can do. :?

We can set it so we have to manually approve every account created, but that's going to flood all the admins with emails.

Registration closed permanently. I quit. I have enough crap on my plate trying to keep mom alive and keep her house from falling apart. If someone wants to step up and admin this poo or figure out some spambot workaround, I'll gladly give them all the FTP and admin info, but I cannot and will not deal with this anymore. Sorry.

I know its frustrating. Would it be possible to set it up so that a real person would have to email such and such address with a specific subject line or something if they wanted to register?

I feel like we really should come up with a way to get this to work.

IIC uses the human verification mod (on vbulletin). It asks a question (randomized? Not sure) that requires an answer. Something like "who was the third president of the united states" or "what is the third word in this sentence".
