Admin Approval

Postby pete » Thu May 30, 2024 9:50 am

Hey folks

Due to a spam/scam attack on our forums last weekend where we saw several hundred spam messages filling up the latest forum posts - I have for now switched forum registrations to admin approval.

This means we can review new registrations and approve only the non spammers. One or 2 may get by but this should prevent the spam attacks for now.
Genuine new registrants shouldn't have to wait long to be approved.

If you are genuine and have not heard back please contact webmaster@simviation.com and I will resolve. It can be easy to miss a genuine simmer as I'm getting between 40 and 100 registrations every day. Hopefully the ai will learn soon that simviation is not a spam house :lol:


Thanks :)
