Important! Re: Registering on the Site

Postby CampADK » Fri Oct 03, 2008 5:12 pm

Due to the overwhelming amount of spam bots that are attempting to register, I am having to delete any registrations that don't look 'real'. Unfortunately this may include validate registrations. The site is receiving at least 50 bot registrations a day, which are time consuming to review / delete.

If you register, and don't get an activation email back within a day to two, please email me to let me know the camper name you are trying to register, and I will either activate your registration (if its still there), or have you re-register if I deleted your registration in error.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but until I find time to make some improvements to the registration process to defeat the spam bots, I can't do much else.

Your patience is much appreciated.

Registration has now been reactivated (without having to go through an approval process).

I've managed to delete all the spam bot registrations and made it that much harder for them to get through :mrgreen:

Cheers

Good news, bad news...

Good news is the forum upgrade and setup on the new server is looking good.

Bad news is, the old Galley2 software which manages campers photos is just too much of a bloated royal pain in the butt to get working. Fortunately I we will still have the existing albums on the new site, and links into forum threads will be intact, but you will not be able to add new photos.

I'll have a better solution at some point, hopefully this spring as time permits, and MUCH simplier than Gallery too and its gazzillions of options we don't need. I'll be able to transfer all existing photos to the new solution so don't worry about photos getting lost.

Hopefully the transfer will be done Wed or Thurs. If not next week. (going camping this weekend we hope!)

Cheers
