Title: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: Gryzor on 08:51, 20 July 11
Hello guys,
Just to let you know, due to the creation of dozens of spammer accounts in the last few days I decided to temporarily disable account creation.
If any non-registered members want an account created, leave a post here and I'll take care of it.
Apologies for the hiccup,
Themis

Still better than having naked Spanish chicks on the front page... oh wait... :o

Nothing wrong with those, I'm not partial against Spanish women, but having to go to the PC every time I get a notification about a new user got to my nerves...

Hello!

Just send me a PM with your desired user name, your email and (if you wish) your real name and you'll get an email from the system with a randomly-generated password... that's all :)

Cheers

It's a good move cause there's a place for everything and there's no place here for that Riff-Raff.  >:(

It's only temporary; it's a huge drag to have to come here and request an account...

I don't know exactly what it means, but certainly due to my "frenchie's" english  ;D

I mean: When you register here in our forum, it doesnt hurt you... And when you are registered, you can spam other people full of personal messages ;)

btw, as a note, putting dots in a gmail address (in the username field) doesn't help. For Gmail, k.r.a.k.o.u.t=krakout=kr.ak.out etc.

Mate, did the registration work out ok?

Basicalement, j'ai laisse everyone enregister maintentant.

(ooh, the heat)
Title: Re: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: Bryce on 21:31, 26 July 11
@Mrlou: Excellent suggestion!

@Gryzor: I gave you a "Like" for inventing the word "Basicalement" :D I assume you meant "Principal".

Bryce.

Well, basicalement I've got a Diplome D'etudes Superieures (where I met the missus, actually), so it was intentional, hence the heat reference ;) But thanks for the like!

Is registration still disabled?

I tried to register earlier but have not recieved a notification email.
Title: Re: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: Gryzor on 19:01, 16 September 11
Hello Bob,

There appear to be some problems with email at the moment. I have disabled email verification so you should be able to register without verifying your address...

Thanks,
T

Post by: fatbob(1) on 19:34, 16 September 11
Am still unable to register - it steel says it needs to send out a validation email.

Also now the user nam(es) that I was after and email addresses linked to them are blocked.

Hello mate,

Glad to see you on board, please excuse the server niggles... we recently moved servers and there are still some issues to iron out.

However, which user name is 'blocked'? And what did it tell you - how is it blocked?

Thanks,
T

I originally tried to register under the nick "fatbob_gb" , it said that it would send me an email to validate the registration - no emails were/have been recieved.

Once you disabled email verification I tried to register with fatbob_gb again but said that the name was not available. So I tried with fatbob & a different email address nad that eventually worked - I still needed an email to validate but hat arrived after a couple of hours.

By the way - am enjoying the site and now have a list of small projects that I am looking forward to starting with my 6128 and my soon to arrive 6128+.  :)

Welcome Fatbob. Hardware or software projects?

Bryce.
Title: Re: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: fatbob on 15:28, 17 September 11
Hardware - first job will be making some DIY cartridges - possibly a megarom.

Nice work by the way :D
Title: Re: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: Bryce on 15:33, 17 September 11
Thanks, let me know if you need any further information about any of the hardware.

Bryce.
Title: Re: Wiki registration disabled
Post by: Gryzor on 18:43, 17 September 11
Ooh, more hardware guys. More than welcome! :)

Yeah, the problem was that the mail server was not working and the system had reserved the id/email in its pending queue until verified...
