Hiya,

Due to the constant and sadly increasing spams regarding Loan/Mortage/Viagra/and-what-not-else I was forced to turn on some protection:

- No more guest posting/replying
- New users need to verify their account by clicking an a link in the Welcome E-mail


Temporarly, for the next couple of days, it is required to await my manual approval to complete the registration process.
Thanks for your patience if you're stuck in the validation queue.

best,
Arcat

Just wanted to inform everyone that the forums are still heavily in the line of fire.

About 10-15 registrations daily with names like 'SuperJohnXXX' (yeah, you're the man) or 'GoogleWhore' (actually... I'm really curious what she would have posted).

The admin-approval system seems to do a good job till the peak goes down.


If you need to create an account to post something real, please pick a good nickname, talk to an existing member ingame or at IRC.

best,
Arcat
