The last two weeks we got six new members, all of them spam addresses.  >:(  >:(

Apart from other methods of keeping the forum spam free, I now have activated an approval-first registration. That is, every registration has to be approved before it becomes active..

I deleted these six members. If you cannot get onto the forum anymore, please contact me directly.

Only a few new members joined in the last months, we are now at 36 members. I am getting active again to get that number higher!

The spammers keep coming and getting deleted, 362 till today.  Almost 40 spammers managed to get past the automatic spam blocks and registered, to be deleted by me before they had any access.

The forum safety precautions are working: around 870 spam registrations have been blocked automatically, with another 62 deleted in the approval process.
  ;D  ;D

That is the good news. The bad news is that we got stuck on 40 members, with only a few really active.
 :o    :-[  :(   >:(


Let's try do this better in the run toward the 2016 NotW Conference.  8)
