Forum Registration is Temporarily Suspended

#1 Post by Turaiel » Thu Jul 25, 2019 3:29 pm

Due to a recent influx of spam bot accounts, registration on the forum has been suspended, pending investigation.

We apologize for the inconvenience.


UPDATE: The spam bot situation appears to have been mitigated so registration is restored.

Honestly I pity the guys who deploy those stuff. I imagine with the decline in popularity of phpbb in the last decade plus the niche nature of most forums these days. I doubt they make any money at all...
