We hope this will make the forum a much better place for the legitimate users that remain, and that it's still possible for new users to arrive if they have good intentions.

EDIT: It seems the change isn't working as expected -- in the sense that new users aren't being restricted as intended at all -- as so many things on the website, so we will look more into how to implement this if possible.

Trust me, the benefit from moderation in spam prevention is far greater than the light temporary inconvenience some new users may experience from this.

Scatty Think it's a good step overall, at least if people don't have to wait for more than like a week for their approvement, which might discourage some. There's always 2 sides to every medal.
