new member registration

following a recent spate of spammers registering on the forum, :o
we have changed the registration from "Instant Registration" to "Admin Approval" this will mean there is a short delay for new users of the forum before their registration is accepted,
this will usually be within an hour or two, but may sometimes be a little longer, so please bear with us, and your account will be approved A.S.A.P :D
we apologise for any inconvinence this may cause any new members, but we feel it is necessary to keep the spammers out of the forum,

the Forum Team.

an update to the above,
following more and more spammers attempting to join the forum recently, resulting in several dozen new members per day,
all who proved from checks, to be spammers etc,
we have installed another piece of anti spam software to the forum,
which effectively blocks users from certain countries from using the forum,
if you find that you are one of the blocked guests, you should see a notice to that effect,
VPN users might also find they are blocked from using the forum too,
all users from the UK and Ireland should have no problems in using the site as normal,
this should help keep the forum free of spammer in the future :D
