board registration working - spambots flood in

Postby josh » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:54 pm

Ever since I moved the BBS from godaddy to namecheap, the email function for the board hasn't been working. Yesterday, I finally got stepped through all of it by a very patient namecheap support person, and now it's working. As a result, we were flooded with spam posts this morning - the built in "anti-spambot" measures the board provides don't seem to be all that effective. For that reason, I'm temporarily requiring administrative approval for all new accounts until I hack the board software again like it was at godaddy.

We're back to our previous operating procedure - you must use a spamgourmet address to create an account here. Only now you can use the alternative domains as well as spamgourmet.com/net/org
