If you're just browsing the forums and fancy signing up to join in, then you need to read this.

Recently, the CAPCHA system that prevents spambots signing up decided to go belly-up, and pretty much rendered registering for the site nigh-impossible.

Disabling the CAPCHA just led to a massive influx of spambots signing up.

So... as of about 37 seconds ago, all new members will need to have their account activated by an admin until CAPCHA decides to play ball.

Theres only two admins at the moment, but theres usually one of us knocking around at almost any part of the day, so if you do sign up and don't get activated within an hour or so, then head on over to our official Facebook page and let us know you're waiting and one of us will get on it ASAP.

This should only be a temporary process until CAPCHA stops being a big fanny, but just in case...

Thank you.

Blokeh.

Thats the problem. :lol:

Prof got locked out the other day, so drastic measures had to be taken.

Should be fine now for everyone. Only people affected are new users, but even thats only temporary. :yes:

So thats why I couldn't make any alts. JK. So why not add more mods than just the CAPCHA? Like a simple math problem, are you a human, and something else to stop bots?

Oh gee, now why in the world didn't I and my colleague - who builds websites for a living - think of that? :facepalm:

Because there are companies out there who actually pay people to sit at a desktop and set up accounts on forums and then fill in those sections. Those question things just block the auto-scripts, not the manual bots.

We were doing fine before the CAPCHA shit its pants, and we'll do fine when its back up. In the meantime, read OP. :yes:

For anyone interested, the problem was then the board upgraded from 305 to 308, the template engine also changed. Our custom template didn't update, so was incorrectly trying to display the CAPTCHA from 305. Finally sussed it out, but still took a couple of days to learn how to alter the templates to the new version (which is why they still look like poopie, but thats next on my list)
