    Hello Fiskfans! As some of you may have noticed during the past few weeks. We've been dealing with a lot of advertising from spam bots that are somehow getting past our anti spam filter. We've tried multiple ways to prevent these users from registering. But none are working. Thus, for the time being, I've enabled manual approval on new user registrations for the time being. Which means that for any new users that register on this forum. They won't be able to create or reply to any threads or send any messages until they've been approved by us.
    We hope everyone can understand this decision. In the meantime, we'll be working on finding more efficient ways to deal with spam bots.
