New Board Security

Hey, guys, what's up?

For some reason, there's been a ridiculous upsurge in spambots and spam posts on the forums in the last week. I have no idea why, but I'm banning IPs right and left and it's getting to be hard to keep up with them. So, in the interests of keeping us happy and spam-free, I've instituted admin confirmation for anyone making a new login.

What does that mean for most of us? Eh, nothing. It won't change any characters that are already registered, and it won't add any steps when you log in or anything. What it will do is require that every time you register a new character, an admin (me, or Annie) will have to approve you before you'll be able to post. Since most of us already have a zillion logins, it probably won't come up much, but if you're making a new character or bringing a new player to the board, make sure to poke one of the admins so we can approve you.

Take that, you little spambot fuckers. Not on my boards.
