New registrations disabled

Postby Greywing » Fri Aug 02, 2019 6:53 am

The forum's been getting hammered with spam bots the last days/weeks. I disabled the forum for a couple days, but it makes no difference. For the time being, the forum is not accepting any new registrations.

I've enabled registrations a couple times, but when I check 24 hours later, there's an entire list of obvious spammers. New accounts still need their first post validated so you won't see this spam, but I have to sort through it.
Also, every so often an old acccount that never posted suddenly posts spam. No way to tell how many of these dormant spammers are here, but they also won't show up.

That said, I'm considering closing the forum. There's very little activity and keeping this site up does cost money.

Turn registrations on for 24 hours and 20+ spam account signed up.

At this point it's pretty much certain I'll close the forum. Probably next summer, though I'll post a warning some months in advance.

I've never been much of a fan of chat rooms - i'm working on my PC for most of the day so that leaves too much opportunity for me to be interrupted.

Feel free to start your own discord channel and advertise it on these forums though.

I think it was back in the days when PenneyRZ was here?
I do remember seeing Mariner, Chyriax, and Bluewing.
