Allowing anything but moderated forum registration is getting spammers having open season on the boards. So, every registration has to get clicked by me.

I'm only going through pending registrations every few days, so there may be a gap between registration and getting a confirmation email. Worse still for the next few weeks since I probably lose internet access tomorrow.

So, please be patient if you register. If you're really desperate you can always drop me a mail with the your username and I'll try and sort it out asap.

Maybe you can add a more efficient image generator for the confirmation code ?

er, right above that line:

We have 121 registered users


you don't have to be registered to be on the "users" count, it counts guests as well, and we don't implement an image code for "guests" to view the pages ;)

It's only registered people that can post. There seem to be plenty of ways round the registration stuff at the moment, I turned it back to User confirmation for 1 day and got a spammer posting pictures of Angelina (which weren't very good ;)).

Yeah, not been around to tidy up. Still no internet at home, so I'll be stuck for approving new members for a week or so.

Sorry chaps,

Kev

Yeah it took a few days for my account to get activated. I got impatient and sent you off a few emails, thought you went away on vacation or something.

The PHPBB site has some nice mods to fix the captcha, and overall just keep the bots out. Most of them aren't too bad to install, they just take a little reading. You could also just block all of the .ru and .cn domains, it doesn't look like there are many non-english speaking posters here.

Thanks for finally getting around to it though. I'm just starting to learn Slick, but so far my impression is that it's a pretty cool library, and easy to pickup on (that's coming from a Graphics2D convert too). Btw your examples rule, and so does that Space Invaders tutorial. :D

Just done an update to use textual confirmation, so hopefully I can switch on to user authorisation now and not have to keep going through lists and lists of deletions.

Fingers crossed!

Well, I'd call that a success. No spam registrations and we've been on user activation for a while now.

Textual Confirmation seems to be a winner.

Kev, you never answered my registration requests. I've been sending them for about a few months now, and I finally decided to use my school email adress instead. This time, registration was automatic.

Luckily, I've used this time to fix bugs and learn how to implement things in slick on my own, and have built a quite neat game.

There was a fault with email set up. It's fixed, probably the old email would have worked too now.

Did you mail me direct btw? I didn't get anything.

Which email address were you sending to, cause I've been seeing some from a few people which I've sorted out. Not seen any others.
