01-16-20 Forum Update
« on: January 17, 2020, 12:01:34 AM »
Due to a loophole I had left open, a large wave of spambots obliterated the previous database. I have created a new database and I have taken precautions to ensure such circumvention is not to happen again.

The GE History document I was working on is still in the works. I have it handwritten in a journal, and I will post it again when it is complete.

If you previously had a username on these forums, you will have to make a new one.

I look forward to it.

'Just banned all Russian bots' hostnames. Faggots.

Not a single spambot has successfully registered. The requirement for e-mail activation and a bit of mental acrobatics to answer the registration questions is working.

That's the idea, to use a logical question that requires the mental acrobatics of a sentient being. It seems to work better than any third party modification out there. Bots are incapable of spelling a four letter word when two are visually prompted.
