We got our first spam account.

-- 04 May 2013 10:10 am --

Just got done fighting back a massive spam account invasion.
Banned a bunch of email addresses; hopefully that will hold them off.

-- 09 May 2013 12:37 pm --

To fight back the current wave I have had to disable hotmail email addresses. If you want to register and have to use one, let me know so I can allow your though.

Another wave of spambots. :roll:
Photobucket was evil and made third-party display a premium feature. Then they increased the size and obnoxiousness of the placeholder advertisement encouraging me to upgrade. Thus, this text signature.

I know. :roll:
I can only ban the addresses as they use them, so they keep coming back with new ones.

I cranked up the restrictions on new accounts. That should help some, but it will also affect legitimate users. We seem to have all we’re going to get right now already registered, but if you’re a new user and have trouble joining let me know.

You should just have every user have to be Admin verified. You can usually tell by their names if they're spambots. That's what I did.

That's what I just did. I didn't want to have to go that far though.

I signed up, and I finally found an email in my spam box, but it just said: Your account is currently inactive, the administrator of the board will need to activate it before you can log in. You will receive another email when this has occured.

Hrm. I think it's busted. I've just left it in getting interest for awhile. If nothing changes I'll hit the 1,000,000 mark in 74ish days. You might want to take out interest before the economy completely inflates.

Not to fear, there isn't an economy there. It's all just about making as much money as you can.

And I have completely forgotten about this... I wonder if my stocks have plummeted? *Goes to check*

Well, the Webster Development Firm has certainly skyrocketed since my last purchase... It say I had one share, originally purchased for $240 (which also happens to be the lowest it's ever been); it's now at $2924. I'd say that's a fairly good profit. :mrgreen:
I currently have $3,999.

I believe I finally discovered how to stop the redirect when you log in. It shouldn’t happen anymore, so please let me know if it does.

I tried to log in; this failing, I checked the memberlist and found I did not (or no longer) had an account.
When I attempted to create an account, this popped up.
We are having technical issues with new member registration right now.
The problems should be resolved within a few weeks - Sorry for the inconvenience

Yes, that is a blank page I had to insert into the registration process to stop things from repeatedly erroring because something is broken right now and I can’t determine what. New registrations are not possible at this time. I thought you already had an account though.
I'll check.

Edit:

But you’re right, you don’t. As I said you can’t make one at the moment, sorry. The registration system is broken somewhere. I’m working on fixing it but need to identify the problem first.
