A friend of mine tried signing up to the PFs. And guess what happens. He can't post. Why? Because he has to wait for some forum mod to approve his account.... if that's the only solution to the spam bots signing up to the site, I'm afraid its a bad solution... let me use his own words:

QUOTE
says I have to be approved by a forum mod first or something stupid like that. its just ridiculous that they need to approve it, and even worse that it takes a week.


A week waiting to be approved and nothing happening yet. Now that's service. FIX IT! No wonder we don't have new users of these forums:p

The only person who can approve new accounts is FuglyDragon, I'm not involved with any of that stuff, and honestly, the way it works now is the only solution to the spam bots.

It's because nobody who even comes CLOSE to management here knows how to modify IPB, so they don't know how to change the captcha to something better. Fugs should switch back to a little-to-barely-known forum system. It would at least work better.

I don't care if we have spam bots... as it is right now, noone who doesn't already have an account can post, and as it is now, it can take days/weeks. Bet Fugz is on vacation.

Is it so hard to get on AIM and ask him to update it all ohmy.gif

And this place is so full of cobwebs that I don't know it's still open.

I don't use AIM anymore... it shouldn't be needed to do so either. If you run a forum and you close the signups like that, then you should pay a little more attention to it... even if it's a half dead forum, or you'll never get the little activity there is to stay alive.

What's so hard to send out an e-mail that has a link you'll need to activate in order to get your forum account to work? That should fix the spam bots I guess.

I've asked for the ability to approve/reject accounts, but It hasn't been given to me any of the times i've asked. Fugs seems to be away, so for now you're friend will just have to wait I guess.

Right, this is getting absolutely ridiculous.

First of all thanks for making this post SWB, too bad it obviously didnt have any effect. This is Abradix/Biel Tan posting from BAs account - Because I STILL cant post myself. Infact it gets better, I signed up last monday again on the PFs because my old account was deleted, which is fine since Ive been inactive for years. But today the account that I created on monday was deleted. What kind of a way to attract new players is that, make them wait weeks before they can post and even then just randomly decide to delete their accounts instead? So now I registered again, if anyone can contact Fugsy that'd be spiffy, since the email in his profile doesnt work.

And hi Wicky.

The solution to spam bots is that image thingy where you have to verify it by typing it or whatever...
