REGISTRATION OPEN! All hail Zoul! 12/12/12

We've got too many bots pouring into the forums. I've just had Dave turn off the ability to have new members.

Once we can get some new countermeasures in place, or some better handle on moderation and administration, we will lower the blockade on new users.

Edit by Warbear: Make sure you guys aren't posting in any of the bots threads or quoting their posts. It makes it a lot easier on us and the database when we need to delete the threads.

Also keep in mind that there are only three mods who are around consistently and we're busy with our own lives, so the bot threads might sit for a bit.

So that explains it.
And here I thought the bots were getting smarter... like viruses.

No way in.

No way out.

You can get out.
You just won't get back in.

You can't unregister. Thus, you can't get out.

Isn't a perma ban the equivalent of that?

a mod would have to wipe your existence from the forum

Re: Bot Storm Gates Raised. Registration Disabled. July 26, 2012

Actually, I'm pretty sure that only admins can do that.

no, we can. just don't ever do it unless it's a bot or person mass-posting toxic and/or illegal content on the forums to purge it from the system.

I've tried it with a bot and it said that I didn't have permission. :x

Of course you don't. You're not BR.

Addendum: I actually do have permission. I don't have permission to delete users.

I thought it would be yet another of these cases where BR goes: "What do you mean you can't fly? Can't everyone fly? I can fly. I thought everyone can fly man. In a moment you're gonna tell me that some people can't even travel through time and space at will."

Are you telling me that some people can't even travel through time and space at will?

Now we need to check our water and food supplies, and make sure they last us for the winter. We need to have someone calculate the appropiate amounts for each ration.
