SMRT Registration by Admin approval only

Postby Whateverman » Sat Feb 12, 2011 2:57 pm

Hi Folks,

SMRT is beset with spammers. Mac and Vagon have tried a few technical approaches, and while they've been successful to a small extent, we're getting more than a dozen accounts created every day.

As such, new registrations are now approved by your overlords, er, Admins. We're deleting tons of spam accounts, and while I hope we don't accidentally trash a valid one, it may happen. If any of you knows of a person trying to gain access, give one of us a heads up.

Thanks y'all
"Polymath" means "having learned much"; the correct word for "having failed to learn much" is simply "Ray".

We have implemented CAPTCHA so Admin approval of new accounts is no longer necessary. What happens now is an e-mail is sent to the e-mail address you specify when registering. In the e-mail is a link that you have to click on to activate your new account.
