If your kids want to register, just PM Damien, he can repurpose an old account like he did for the RDMs daughter.

One slipped through once before. I have no idea how, as it's set to disallow all names and then after that never send the verification email
It never managed to verify itself at least. I've decided rather than deleting, I'll rename the account (èăđạ̀ü èăđó íèä ôîđ ñïèä doesn't quite roll off the tongue) and repurpose it for the next real person who wants to reg.

The RDM is guessing that the characters in that username are slipping through a loophole in the "disallow all names" functionality. The last one to slip through had a very similar name.

It must be that. I have "*" set in the disallowed names, so it really should disallow any characters at all. Fucking useless 2000's technology!

All this closed registration makes me think of Sektorseven again. The hordes of bots at our city gates!

I didnt realize registration was closed. How do you expect the site to come alive if no new members are allowed?

It's kind of hard to allow registration when everything that registers is spambots. There's a sea of spambots just waiting behind those closed registration gates to flood into our community.

I've explained this so many times (probably even in this thread), I'm gonna leave it for Golbez or somebody else.

Eh. It's something about the old system the forum is running on. We do have some kind of Captcha, apparently, but we can't get the best and latest because they aren't designed for the old infrastructure of the forum. It would require updating the forum completely which would surely be involved and also risk losing the posts we have right now, I guess? Damien could explain it better, and use proper terminology like UBB whatever and whatnot, but for some reason he decided to pawn it off on me instead. Tongue

It's just multi-threaded threads.

You're just jealous of all the UPVOTES the RDM would get.

And the fact that LPTPW wouldn't really work so much.

A) Multi-threaded threads suck.

B) Fuck that! Why would you organize threads in any other way than being able to read the posts as a conversation in chronological order.

Multi-threaded threads sounds like a buzz word for make your life harder than it has to be.

IMO, Reddit looks far more old fashioned than even SG.

While reddit looks horrible on my computer, it's actually fit really nice on my phone.

And yes... it looks like something that would have worked great back in the 90's

Have a nice day

But the flair! The flair!

The sheer volume of content available there is pretty sweet, though.

Hey, it is a great time waster... sometimes too much! I'm finally able to disconnect myself from it after I was without internet for a week. Now I'm been productive and actually doing other things! Still, not much karma to be gainned.

Have a nice day

Well you guys have access to the PHP right? I doubt phpBB from 2005 was doing anything fancy. Just make it an invite-only forum by adding a invite-passcode blank on the registration page, then give each member referral passcode listed on their profile page.

1) I don't have access to do this
2) It would more likely completely fuck the forum beyond repair than actually have the desired outcome.
