I'm guessing that most of you did not know this but I had new registrations turned off for a while due to the flood of spam sign ups. I turned it back on to see what happens. If you know someone that wants to join, now might be the window.

GalacticaBBS was having a problem a few weeks back with the bots, I'm not sure what Tom ended up doing to stop them but it was getting bad for a time.

I have shut down new registrations for the time being. If someone wants to join until I open them back up, contact me.

BTW if you sign up with a name that makes no sense like...... hagumarazza, I delete the account instantly.

Well, registrations have been open for a while and little has changed with the massive registrations of spammers. Yesterday I clicked the wrong button and a dozen got in. I think that I have them all removed and their posts at this time.

schweet.

I don't suppose all the bots were kind enough to originate at a handful of IP addresses, were they?

Looks like one spammer got through... (some thread I reported that didn't even have a real title).

Are new registrations currently turned off? I have someone on the Playtrek e-mail list ask me about it and if there was a way to get in still. But I wasn't aware that they'd been shut off or if they'd open up again soon.

There is a bad issue with spammers. The board will be upgrading soon and then a more hard core system will be in place to help curb that.

In the meantime, have them send me an email and I'll get them in.

For those that want to join, I am sorry that registrations are shut down due to this crazy spamming. However, you can go here to the register screen,

http://www.trektoy.c...act=Reg&CODE=00

and click the Contact the Forum Adm link. Send me an email with

Login name

Screen name (they can be different)

Password

and email that you want to use.

I check that email at night and I'll add you manually ASAP.

Ok, this new forum has some roadblocks that the old one did not have. Let's see how it works. Reg is open.
