[08/03/06] Antispam Updates

In the past few weeks, you may have noticed several dozen new members sign up on the forums. Most of these members have been deleted now--they were spam bots advertising pornographic web sites. Yeah, we don't need that.

Today, to hopefully prevent them from advertising these web sites, I took out a few options when you register. Now, you must log in after you get your verification e-mail in order to update your site url, AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, etc. This will not stop these bots from registering, however, but another antispam method will be implemented when I upgrade to the newest forum software later in the year (when everything quiets down). In order to register next year, you'll have to enter the number/letters that you see in a randomly generated image. (I'm sure that's not unfamiliar to you!)

Although this post doesn't necessarily effect the members that are already registered, I just thought I'd let you know what was going on. Thanks! :D

Edit: Because they're still signing up and it's getting bloody annoying, registrations have been stopped until the new antispam feature is in place.
