Registration changed to require approval by moderators.
in Forum Issues
First, a big thanks to @Meraple for finding and reporting Spam posts on the forum. We've banned the offending users and the posts, but since it was robot-spam, more users kept sneaking through the authentication system.
As such, I've switched registration to "approval-only" mode, so all new users will have to be approved by moderators. This is a temporary measure to prevent spam, but it may last a while, as our focus is on development of the game, not the forums currently.
Thanks for all your support!
