New account registrations temporarily disabled
« on: March 03, 2014, 11:51:13 pm »
Hi,

We've temporarily disabled new user accounts due to a mass influx of bots registering accounts to spam with.  Additionally, any accounts with less than 1 post will not be able to post for the time being.

We'll revert this change after a while.  Thank you!

That sucks.

Do we have Capcha protection for account registration? Or maybe some kind of touhou question that you could google easily / most fans would know? ie "What's the first name of the Hakurei Shrine Maiden?"
An idle suggestion, at least.
Kilga is this right; like is this person seriously the player, and it's not some alias or something that's designed to be deliberately obfuscating? NekoNekoRex. Who the hell is that :C   ~Poya Aaaa (Serela), Bunny Must Die Mafia

This is mostly theoretical, but if someone is desperate to sign up (and not as a banned sockpuppet, which seems to be the problem), would they be able to contact an admin for manual setup and approval?
There was something here once. Wonder what...

I suppose they could use the irc channel.

Account registrations reenabled and people under 3 posts can post again (with the usual caveats of passing a captcha)
