Update: After some small adjustments to the spam countermeasures, Forum Signups are back on.
Due to a spate of spam account creations on the forums, I’ve shut down the ability for people to confirm their accounts by simple email response.
Until further notice, I’ve set the requirement back to be handled by the forum moderators.
Understand that this process may take longer to complete as I’ve directed them to dig deep into account requests before approving them.
So please be patient.
