Hi everyone,

as we have been unable to fight the waves of spambots that have been registering at our forums, we've made the decision to manually approve registrations. This means that, after a new account is made, it has to be approved by me first, before posting can begin.

I try to activate legitimate accounts as I see them, but it's not always easy to discern spammers from real people by e-mail and nickname alone.

If you wish to make sure that I process your registration 100%, please send me an email at admin@unrealsp.org, announcing your registration and providing your nickname.

No, I had approved you right away since you had an e-mail connected to an Unreal website. That made it pretty clear you're not a bot. :)

Might be probably time for an approval list check?

As a heads-up, I'm never going to manually check the "approval list" for the following reason:

A spambot registers on our forums every ~30 minutes. I am not able to browse through the registrations manually; people gotta send me an e-mail as outlined above.

If the spambot problem has gotten that bad is there any possibility that bringing it up with the website hosts would help? Or can they not do anything?

check out your registration settings, could help imo , I started a forum and yes switched it to manual approval and this works the best just need to look ad the bell to see if an approval is needed real easy just check the box and submit it, you can fast see if this is a bot or whatever as you will receive also a mail from it if you forward the email to your E-mail account you use for privet stuff.
