Registrations temporarily disabled due to spam

Postby Agent X20 » Wed Mar 02, 2016 7:54 pm

We've had an influx of automated spam attacks so I've temporarily turned off new user registrations.

I'll look into tweaking registrations to stop them but I suspect I'll need to do some long overdue phpbb3 upgrades to stop the attacks.

I'll keep you posted.

Looks like they're still getting through, albeit in smaller numbers. An upgrade looks like the best option.
