Yeah, it's totally been 12 hours and we haven't had a single spam hit! It's only time before the bots are familiar with the 3.0 code and can continue spamming. Don't let your guard down! XD

Hey guys - important update here!

We've been getting hit with a lot of spam bots trying to register for the forums lately (some of you may have seen the topic where I asked about certain new registrations). So it looks like the spammers have found us again and are trying to get back into our forums!! As you all should know the new user do have to be approved by an admin before they can post, so we aren't going to get hit with any actual spam posts.

Since all new user have to be hand-approved it's very important that they provide adequate information when registering. This means putting in a reference name! If you refer someone to the forums make sure they know to put your name in the Reference field. It would also be a good idea to send me a PM/IM letting me know to expect a valid registration.

If the profile registration information is sparse/shady looking it's very likely that it will be deleted, and the new user will need to re-register.

Just a quick look at all the users I just deleted after letting them pile up for a month. ;D

Remember, lemme know if you have someone register for the website!!
