Forums registrations have been disabled for quite a while now, probably the better part of a year. The reason was because spammers basically took over and managing this thing became a full time job, one that was a waste of our time. So the board basically went into stasis and we stopped paying attention to it, which is unfortunate because that's not what we had planned. But when you have spammers ruining a good thing and no time or energy to put up with it, such things unfortunately happen. Worse would be having this filled with spammer garbage.
So today I'm announcing that registrations have been re-enabled and we're going to give it another try. Another moderator besides me will be watching the board and we'll be monitoring the forums once again. Thanks for your patience.
