Oops, sorry Russia
« on: January 06, 2017, 08:01:07 AM »
A couple of months ago I put a ban on new registrations from .ru email addresses. This was due to a high amount of spam coming from .ru. Seems I accidentally banned all .ru accounts though and did not realize it. I was not trying to start a new cold war here...just a dumb mistake. I've removed all bans for now so everyone should be able to log in.

There was a period this summer where we were getting hundreds of fake registrations every day but I changed the registration criteria so hopefully there will not be any further problems.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

I wonder if that caused problems for other people.

Hello from Moscow!
Hehe. I thought it was some kind of forum engine bug. Used my TOR browser to read the forum  :D
A couple of months ago I put a ban on new registrations from .ru email addresses. This was due to a high amount of spam coming from .ru. Seems I accidentally banned all .ru accounts though and did not realize it. I was not trying to start a new cold war here...just a dumb mistake. I've removed all bans for now so everyone should be able to log in.

There was a period this summer where we were getting hundreds of fake registrations every day but I changed the registration criteria so hopefully there will not be any further problems.
Thank you, Brian for your awesome projects and promt international shipping.
And all of you guys for your knowledge sharing. I like reading this forum, especially build reports. That's very inspiring.

Welcome back, Jouve!

All election jokes aside, it's good to have our friends from Russia back on the forum.
