Forum registration and email has been repaired

Post by Bandmaster » Sat Oct 27, 2018 4:05 pm

I discovered a major problem with the forums registration form and how the forum sends out emails caused by the upgrade I did a while back. Plus over 2000 spam accounts had been attempted to be setup. These spammers apparently have a lot time on their hands and have nothing better to do. So I have changed the verification method on the registration form to a question that all good marching geeks should be able to answer, but that spammers will scratch their heads about.

So, if you had tried to set up an account since August 30th and failed, all those attempts have been deleted and those usernames and email addresses are now available to use again. So PLEASE, set up your new account again so you can join in the fun!!!
