REGISTRATION PROBLEM - FIXED!!!

Post by administrator »

I noticed that the while the number of forum viewers has increased, the number of posters is waaaaaay down. After some troubleshooting I found that there has been a serious problem with the email linkage for most of the last year and as a result, new users can not activate their accounts. I have been working on it since Thursday and hope to get it going in the next few days.

Sorry for the difficulty.

I will update this when the problem is corrected.

FIXED! REGISTRATION PROBLEM

Post by administrator »

Well, worked around is more like it. We are still having email problems so I configured the registration system with a manditory non-standard question (i.e. robots should have troubles completing this) and re-Captcha. Then I disabled the activation approval system and tweaked several other account creation settings to make it easy for humans and hard for bots/computers.

I purged about 25,000 bot/computer created accounts and then ran a quick test. All seems well now. We will have to wait a day or two to see if the scumbags can get their bots/computers to outsmart our system.

I think the new system is much easier and faster and I hope you do to.

Thanks for your patients and have a great day.

Ok... now it is completely fixed. Internal email works and external email works.

Because the registration system we put in place a week or two ago is working so well, we will NOT require new users to have email activations.

If/When the spammers figure out how to beat our system, we will re-enable the email activation process.

Let me know if you have any difficulties.

Thanks and have a great day!
