Due to the insane number of spam merchants who seem to want to come here, I've had to disable registration.



This forum is for people who have a silly sense of humour, and appreciate the fun that can be had from being childish.



Our founders were a bunch of people from another forum who wanted a little more freedom to say what they wanted without being criticised for being off topic, too silly, or using poor grammar.



If that sounds like you - then please send me an email and I'll register you as soon as I can. If you know me from somewhere else, then it would be nice if you say - but everyone is welcome!



Note, a lot of us like Anime, Manga, Comics and Cartoons. If you do too, then that's great. If you don't, then come be silly anyway <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->

You can, but you'll be suspended by the gills for a week <!--emo&:fish:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/laughing-fish.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laughing-fish.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Does that get a prize for the most delayed response on a forum, ever?

A note to new registration people thingamajigs:



Automatic registration is enabled, but I have to personally aprove you before your membership actually works. This is because we're still getting a gazilion Viagra bots trying to sign up.



If your email address looks faux, I ignore you. If it looks genuine, I Google it to see if it's on any spam lists.



If you want to ensure a swift approval, then please email me at the address in the OP.



Not that anyone ever reads the stickies. See that bit that says "New Members, please read this if you wish to join"? I don't know why I bother, I really don't <!--emo&<_<--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/dry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='dry.gif' /><!--endemo-->

I think I'll go stick my head in a bucket of water...would you like me to stick my head in a bucket of water?

That would make the pancake wet <!--emo&:unsure:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' /><!--endemo-->



I'm assuming of course that you do have a pancake on your head. That's the unwritten rule number three-and-a-bit. <!--emo&:mmm:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/mmm.png' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mmm.png' /><!--endemo-->

Just a thought, do you have the option to change the registration form on this board?



When I was messing around with a phpbb install, I came across a trick to stop spambots - simply add a new question with a dropdown box to the registration page. The spambot scripts didn't know how to deal with that extra question (they're not very bright) and the registration would fail.



My forum install went from one or two spam signups a day to none at all in the last year - simple but effective. <!--emo&:)--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Nope. I might do if I upgrade it, but then a lot of stuff will go wrong...



We're still running the old Invision software. There's an upgrade to Zeta, but it's quite different. The link is at the bottom of the page if you're interested, where it says "Hosted for free".



TBH I really CBA to see if there's an improved registration process. I'm just happy with the price and that fact it all seems to work. The bots are a lot less than they used to be anyway; just a few a week - not too many to vet but too many to give free reign.
