    Unusual Registration Names

    Hello everyone. I wanted to provide a quick update and start a thread so that if you had questions about this you can ask here.

    1. We are getting some unusual registrations lately. These registrations are generated by a bot that is injecting a website into the registration screen to increase traffic to their particular site.
    2. These registrations are harmless and they do not have access to the backrooms. Some of the bots are a bit more advanced and can actually post an intro. Again, they are harmless to the health and security of the site. Through out the day you may see them and then they will disappear. That is because I am going under the hood and doing a clean sweep throughout the day.
    3. I have been in contact with CAL and he is working on a permanent solution where we can put some additional stop gaps in place to block these. Hold tight.
    4. The sky is not falling.
    5. Go post an intro and ESF.

    Rocket is good, Rocket is wise.

    Good work Rocket and Cal.
    1. Should we let you know if we see one?
    2. What's ESF?
    On the 8th day, God created Paratroopers.
    And the devil stood at attention.

    I think what he means is don't register an account under a name like Holden Magroin, Dick Hertz, Hugh Jorgan, or Mike Hunt.

    Update:

    CAL has locked down new users from making it through without moderation. They will not be able to post either until they make the cut. This will go for every new user going forward.

    Outstanding.
    It's what a man knows about himself inside that makes him afraid.

    Let me add one thing: If you are looking at "who's online" you may see them registering but they will be stopped before they get through the door.

    Hey Rocket, this just happened when I logged in.
    But it logged me in anyway. Could be nothing but I thought it was weird. I also just tried to post it on the help desk as a new thread but it wouldn't let me post.
