New user registrations temp disabled

Postby AeroResource » Tue Mar 01, 2016 3:42 pm

All,

Following a significant level of spam signups to FC within the last 24/48 hours, the new user registration process has been turned off this morning (01/03/2016). This is to allow us to identify the cause behind this and find a method of stopping this from happening in the future. We expect that this will be in place until the weekend 5/6th March and will update in this thread with any information.

Apologies to any potential new members reading this!

CA have the same issue, a lot of new applications to join are well known internet spammers already.

We are used to a number of spam accounts signing up and they are normally caught. However, the volume over the last couple of days is highly unusual to say the least.

I guess it will keep me out of trouble for a few hours figuring it out though :D

User registrations are now re-enabled. However, if it gets spammed as much as it did before we may re-disable. Further updates in here if that happens.
