    Exclamation Suspension of Registration

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Regrettably, we have had to suspend new registrations to this forum. We are currently the victim of a sustained spam attack, designed to make the forum unusable and the suspension of registration is our last line of defence.

    We apologize to genuine would-be members for the inconvenience and will do our very best to open registrations again as soon as possible.
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    Good luck

    I just checked a vB site that I am the admin on and they have not attacked us ... yet anyway.

    It was a zoo last year for a while and then we locked down all registrations and we now put them in a moderation queue. It seems to have helped.

    David, I've made this sticky, but I believe an 'announcement' takes precedent over a sticky - if you know how to change this thread to one of those (and perhaps head every forum with it)

    I'll agree with you there, why would someone want to make this forum unuseable anyway?

    I can certainly vouch for that David.

    I have been at another forum that was destroyed from the same situation. Although that site is up and running, Now you cannot post in real time. The forum Administrator reviews all posts before they are posted. This can take a day to several days before you see your post and only if its approved.
    You may think its just an annoying spammer, But its most likely a destructive hacker. There is so much of this going on all over the internet and you can question it till your blue in the face, But its a very real nightmare.

    Just curious, what is the progress on this? Has the spamming subsided?

    I am glad the problem was addressed sooner than later if there would have been a later. Now this problem can be put to bed and back to CADding as before.

    Great Work! Adminstrator and Moderators.
