Yo everyone!

We know that you are all tired of spamming. We've let all the users get instant account activation until now. We can now start the email verification process for new users. The problem with email verification is that it will take some time for the users to get the email, a couple of hours probably. And the verification email might end up in the spam section. You will have to wait for a couple of hours and then check your spam section to find the email. It isn't very convenient. Then there is the manual activation process. Claraviolet and I will activate the account manually. This might take some time. Especially if someone joins the forum during night time, he/she will have to wait like 8 hours to get their account activated. So choose the option you think is the best way to deal with the spammers.

We are thinking of using manual verification method for a while. At least until the person/persons who are doing all the spamming get tired of it -_-

I guess Manual is safer, but instant is better..........

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

I prefer the classic email verification method. It seems to work well on most sites.

Yeah, I know. We might think of re-enabling the instant verification method some time in the future.

After you have enough measures against the spammers, that is.....
