Lightbulb New Board Registrations Closed

It has been some time since my last post on this board, though Git has been doing a great job of daily moderation. This board is growing daily though with the growth in popularity, we're always constantly dealing with spam, and management of quality within the forums.

Effective about 5 minutes ago, we've decided to try closing new registrations for the board for the next 30 or so days to see how it goes. We may move to an invite only model, or some other hybrid, though we welcome your feedback.

The purpose of this move is to further increase the quality of content on this board for active members, and continue to provide a forum for exchange of information.

I think that temporarily closing new registrations will give us a good glimpse as to whether this is the right move or not.

thankx admin i feel this is right move. Many peoples use rubbish language bad words and when banned register with different username.
Hopefully this wll stop them.

To put it in perspective, up until yesterday there were over 12000 users who had not posted in over 2 years, most of who had never posted. We have had a large number of 'users' who join, post spam (which gets deleted) and sit there. We're better at banning those people within hours now but the number of spammers has got out of hand, so we need this break to catch our breath and decide on a better long term way of handling it.

Nobody wants the board to suffer and that will be forefront in any decisions made.
