Glenn Posted January 22, 2011 Share Posted January 22, 2011 This week we have has a huge flood in new member applications, initially I thought it was the imminent threat of making the board members only around 11pm, but it seems we (like many many forums this week) have been targeted by spammers. This has two knock on effects, firstly we've included an added security step as part of the sign up process, you are now asked a random very simple question about Rovers, these aren't just questions we'd expect Rovers fans to know, but things we'd expect ANY football fan to know. But if you're genuinely struggling to answer them, email firstname.lastname@example.org It also means we're only approving accounts that look genuine. If you happen to be something like a Latvian with a polish email address called KKYXSBoy123XXD (or something equally unlikely) and we haven't activated your account AFTER 3 OR 4 DAYS then email email@example.com letting us know who you are. Sorry for the inconvenience. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
