Having trouble registering on this site?

Postby maxm » Sun Jun 19, 2011 12:37 pm

A new patch has been added to the forum software which will hopefully help prevent most spammers getting through while at the same time automating some of the registration process to ease the burden on the admins (ie me!). We'll see how it goes.

Meanwhile anyone having trouble registering please email webadmin@careel.com with the username you're trying to register. If you seem to be genuine (ie my internal spammer alarm bell doesn't go off) then it should get sorted out pretty quickly.

If it goes poorly, we could see an increase in the number of spammers getting through. I'd be grateful if anyone noticing a spam post would bring it to my attention using the little red exclamation mark button (Report Post) at the top right of the message.

Thanks all.
