      They might be attempting to register... But the changes we've made to that process make it a little harder for them to get through.

        Why would anyone even want to do this? Expecially on something so innocuous as a Festiva forum.

          It comes up as a VB forum, which bots automatically try and register for so they can post their spam messages.

            Yeah, something smells like crap, that's for sure. At this moment, there are 23 guests, all modifying their passwords.

              ^^^ Might have been a festy gathering, and all the people there got memory erased by an accidental misfire of the memory eraser on the nearby set where they are filming MIB3... so they all had to reset their password because they couldn't log on...

                Most of them have the same (or super similar) IP address too... We'll fix them up.

                      Since Simon fixed some issues regarding this a few months ago there haven't been hardly any spammers registering. We only get a fraction of the new users to approve as we used to.

                        Three cheers for Simon! Hip hip.... Oh wait... :P

                        Apparently the IP address of the majority of these guests is coming from Japan... And is a web crawler, search engine spider type deal. Still... I'll just ban the whole slew of IP's that match them so that we're not seeing them there.
