    New User Registrations Off

    We're starting to get a lot of spammers lately, so I've turned new registrations off for the time being.
    May just leave it off, being the super friendly guy that I am. LOL!

    I'm with you. It's gotten so bad that all registrations have to be manually approved on my boards. I check the user name, email address, and IP to see if looks suspicious. They only get to the manual approval list after they pass all the automated checks - Stop Forum Spam, Akismet, etc.

    If you ever want to upgrade to a more modern software (ahem XenForo) I have a license I'm willing to donate to the cause.

    The internet is overrun with spammers and scammers.
    Good call on shutting off registration.
    I never see any new members anyways.

    I was wondering about all the new users.

    So Zap?!? I imagine that if a genuine new user wanted to join they would have to contact you first and you would be able to arrange it?

    There are some creeks I refuse to go anywhere near, with or without toilet paper!
