Registration is Borked

So, if you try to register a new account, the image verification picture does not show up (in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome).

Amphiskios found this as he lost his password and tried to make a new account; I have confirmed on my three browsers.

This is a huge problem in terms of getting new members, though it might explain why there hasn't been much spam lately.

Re: Registration is Borked

^ it's been awhile since we've had spammers, but I know we had a bunch after the update, so I don't know that the update is what caused it.

Re: Registration is Borked

Upon looking for some permanently banned users in the members list, I couldn't find several of their usernames, so if that's what you used to find who last registered, then that's not accurate.

99% of spammers register on the day that they spam. Look:

Not sure what is going on with the image verification, but I've turned it off for now.

Re: Registration is Borked

Wasn't I banned for creating a second username (this one) because I forgot the password to my first account? Yes, I was.

^^ Yes; I chastised him immediately and told him to e-mail Weasel for his password.

I mentioned that only to explain how I found out.

Re: Registration is Borked

i am confused and offended by this thread. the ues of my danish family name to discribe your situation in a bad connotation has offended me greatly. i will not have you sully my good name by throwing it around like this.

Re: Registration is Borked

I couldn't get my password emailed to me for who knows what reason. So this isn't a duplicate account so much as a new one. I've told Foxy to ban amph, so there will be no doubt that I am not duplicating accounts.

Otherwise, I think I'm within the rules. If not, well, let me know.

My dear girl...

When I was your age, I never had a care in the world! I would run around my front lawn stark naked, dear girl, as pure and delightful as the day I was born. Why not throw your cares onto the winds of change, dear one? Why not make a difference in the lives of immigrants? Why not paint the town green instead, young one? *Motivational head jiggle*

Keep it secret! This advice is guaranteed fresh until 2005!
Guaranteed!

As copied directly from your bans:

Quote:
Flaming, flamebaiting, openly questioning Mod decisions, duplicate account, and overall ignoring Mod warnings.
Quote:
Flaming, trolling, baiting, posting about negative rep rather than reporting it, and circumventing closed threads.
The duplicate account was mentioned, but obviously not the sole reason for your ban(s).

I think the registration problem and the password problem is related. Password resets require an image verification as well...

That was exactly it. Unfortunately I gave up on the reset perhaps preemptively.
