New User Registration Temporarily Disabled

Postby Brandon » Mon Jul 16, 2012 8:52 am

Subject says it, but due to the influx of P.O.S. spammers New User Registration Has Been Temporarily Disabled. We hope to have the spambot issues taken care of very soon.

I doubt it since that's an option that stores a cookie on your computer. Make sure your browser isn't dumping the cache, cookies etc.. when you close it. I use the auto log in and have had no issues.

Hey Guys, it's Chris (chris@morebeer.com) trying to figure this out. Sorry this is happening and sorry I didn't see Nate's facebook message to me till just now that you had to turn off new user registration.

I've been trying to research what is going wrong and my programmer doesn't really know much about PHPBB and didn't do any of the custom configurations the last version of the software had. In researching PHPBB3 and these issues I found the following article
http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/custom- ... mmer-tool/

Are you guys OK with me setting this up?
Feel free to try my phone as well at 925-771-7102 i have a few meetings today but will do my best to get back to you.

Thanks Chris for checking in. I'm open to anything that will eliminate the sudden explosion of spam we were getting.

Mike, I think I made you a Mod, see if that gives you permissions to do what you need to do. If not I may have to make you a temp Admin.
