    Hi everyone,
    Does anyone know why registration has been disabled for newcomers?

    Thanks.

    Hi Historical Hunt,

    I know why. Because Tweleve was being bombarded by so much spam, cthree (our Admin) decided to disable registration for a while. At one point he had to actually delete over 30,000 spam messages. Even though stopping new registration was supposed to be just a temporary measure, it has been left that way for several months now. I know he tried several different methods of stopping the deluge, but nothing seemed to work for very long.

    Try contacting him. Here is his profile page: View Profile: cthree - Tweleve.org

    I know other sites have had similar problems. They often have to resort to approving new members on a case by case basis.

    I've enabled registration with moderation. I'll have to approve any new registrations, so if you want that process to be expedited just send me an email (cthree at tweleve dot org)

    Thanks!
