Trouble signing up?

Postby atticus » Wed Mar 09, 2016 1:48 pm

There has been heavily increased spammer activity in the last 10 days. Boo, hairy, dls and I have killed many hundreds of spammers and deleted a large number of posts. Nothing has stayed on the board very long.

As one of the countermeasures, the questions asked on signing up to determine if you are a real person have changed. The idea has been to make them questions that real users will be able to understand and answer, but which may just slow down the spammers (some still get through). They are not trick questions - just give the obvious answers.

If you are having difficulty answering these questions and signing up, then I can only suggest that you contact dls. Find one of his posts for his contact details.
