Due to the massive addition of spam accounts lately the requirements to register has been changed, it's now a bit harder.

Also, I've begun cleaning out users who haven't posted here (ever), so start posting or your account will gone too in the spam account clean out...

Over the past few week the site has grown from roughly 2800 members to 8000, that's a lot of cleaning to do, time I could've used to make new material for the site Sad

Also, all new member accounts are approved by me before you're able to post or even finish registering...

Another member cleanup has been carried out... removing well over 2000 accounts with no posts and no activity for quite some time.

Oh well Smiley

I have enabled membership approvement simply because of they many many spam accounts being created for no obvious reason.

Sorry for the inconvenience that your account isn't approved instantly Sad
