Attention New Users and Spamming

Post by NECRAT » Wed Jul 03, 2019 6:42 pm

Attention all new registered users of The Virtual Engineer.

Starting today, July 03rd, 2019, all new users will be manually approved by the board administration here.

While I understand this may cause a delay if someone has an emergency post. It is necessary for us to take this step in order to curb the spamming issues we've been facing here lately. I apologize for that inconvenience.

Because users have got in through automatic approval, some spammer bots may still exist, however I am working to eliminate them. I apologize for the recent rash of spamming we've had on our forum, and am working diligently to eliminate it permanently.
