New User Sign-ups Disabled: WHY?

Postby EditorGenevieve » Mon Aug 21, 2017 12:25 pm

Hi my friends,
Wanted to let you all know that we are temporarily disabling new users from signing up for the WRN Forum. We are currently addressing all the ways that visitors to our site can communicate with one another and the Forum is one of them.

Existing users can still sign in and post, and non-users can still read the content, but for now no new users will be able to sign up while assess.

The Forum software program is a third party platform we use on our site and consistently we're having to monitor the number of spammers that attempt to sign up. This takes a lot of time from staff weeding through the people who register. As you know, we manually authenticate each user, as opposed to having the system automatically authenticate. Spammers are able to get through any sophisticated captcha program.

Thanks for your patience while we evaluate all this.

Genevieve
