Elmer forum break & change in registration

Post by raback » 10 Aug 2012, 15:13

Hi All,

Elmer forum was temporarily down. The reason was a failed update from version 3.0.5 to 3.0.10. The old version was restored from the backups.

There is a problem currently with the spammers. Sometimes when you open the forum there is more discussion on luxury bags than on finite elements. As a additional countermeasure the registration as from now requires acceptance by an administrator. More convenient methods will hopefully be implemented in the near future.

Thanks, Peter.

Never quite sure what the spammers hope to gain by hitting a high-tech forum. LOL. :shock:
