For a long time we have been forced to ban many email domains from registering on this forum, to fight the flood of spam posts. We are now running this site through CloudFlare, and hope they will stop the spammers for us. We will have to see how well it works, but for now I have removed the banning of many common mail domains that spammers use, such as GMail.com.

If you couldn't register before from such a common mail domain, please try again.

Unfortunately, CloudFlare is letting through many spammers that register an account to put a spam link in the account profile. I've had to ban email addresses at @hotmail.com again. More may follow.

I had to readd @yahoo.com to the banned mail addresses. Too many spam accounts are created from there.

Had to block @*mail?*.com. Hopefully this still lets through @gmail.com and such.

I'm getting tired of the large numbers of fake spam accounts created with diverse Polish mail addresses, so unfortunately I had to block them all: *@*.pl

Hi Kaj,
Could you please unban my @gmail.com I tried to use to register?
I failed the captcha approximatel 20 times, it i's so much more unreadable compared to Google's ReCaptcha

(Btw, I'm the dude from the WWW festival from yesterday)

Hello Max,

Cool that you made it over here! Sorry, we're having a lot of trouble with this phpBB forum.

In principle, there are no single mail addresses banned here, and gmail.com isn't currently banned, either. If you failed the captcha, you're probably banned for a period, possibly half an hour, and I can't see if it is based on your mail address.

Is there a problem with using the mail address you're registered under now? I changed the forum settings to route registrations through my admin mail address. Registration is now not immediate anymore, but I may be able to OK it if you retry.
