Quick note on registration
« on: November 25, 2009, 07:26:04 AM »
Lately, we've been having some spammers slip through the forum registration process on a more frequent basis than usual. I just activated a new registration procedure that is supposed to be extremely effective in keeping spammers out. All new members will need to enter the current year when registering now. It seems stupid but this question is enough to throw off automated programs designed to target forums.

The question (or questions) being asked may change over time to stay one step ahead of the spammers. If the answer is not as obvious as the current one, an answer will be provided.

If anyone has any questions about this, please ask me. Assuming those with questions would be those who aren't registered yet, your best way to ask questions would be to use the contact form.
