Default New registration permission

Hey guys,

just wanted to say only registered users can see the forums: DMB News, DMBcDiscussion and Monkey Tree.
So don't wonder if you're not seeing the forums when you're not logged in.

cheers

it's indeed a bit questionable...

on the other hand, it doesn't seem like we're getting many members to join anyways...

while we're on the subject, I've noticed that there are spam bots or whatever you like to call them that register to the forum on a daily basis. I just wonder how that is possible even though we have the picture with the characters that you have to "copy" in the registration process!!!

Hope to be enlightened.

1.) most of the dmb / or other music communities got such permission options. The main aim is to get new members. Furthermore guests should not only read a thread and copy a link and post it somewhere else.
Sometimes you can see a unanswered thread in the news or dmbc forums. That's annoying for the thread starter. Same goes for the users who post music or video files and don't get a thank you or a reply.
We would like to get some response for our efforts. People should take part in some discussion.
Communities like this one live from discussions and sharing thoughts.


2.) yeah these spam bots suck hard. I'm deleting the bots from the database from time to time. The problem is that Dylan knows how to solve such problems (spam bots, block ip's, etc.). For weeks I've been trying to contact with him. Without any luck.

Update:

I deleted almost the half of the users in the database. Most of them were spam users or users who haven't been here for about 2 years or haven't been posting for about 1 year.

Furthermore I installed a "spam poison" to this board. (Scroll down... at the bottom of the page is the logo). I hope this will solve the problem with the spam users.


cheers

Dylan, just got a PM from corsina. Looks like you accidentally deleted her profile, and she can't post here anymore (not even under a new name...?). Is there some way to undo this? I wanna help her with this problem asap but unfortunately i can't do it myself
