    Why is it hard to register for this site?

    I tried getting an account, but it seems that the the stop spammers registration plugin prevents me…

    I was hoping to look into more info about how EX works on the forums and ask questions, but it seems to be difficult..

    Is there a way to contact you out of site for questions?

    Mind if I give you an email to use?

    @Guest Login,

    If you are recognized as spam that’s a tough one. Be sure you fill out any forms that are presented as Turing Tests, and if you still can’t get through you can email the whois address for this website for now.

    That said you shouldn’t require an account to download and use Sword of Moonlight if you follow the site’s instructions. The only reason to require an account right now is to post in the forum, add pages to this website, and to edit external links and new pages into the wiki at en.swordofmoonlight.org.

    Furthermore,

    The Stop Spammers plugin has been updated to a newer version. It seems to have a request for whitelisting form that can be filled out if you are deemed spam.

    Spam is a HUGE problem for user generated websites today. If you are deemed spam odds are your IP address has been commandeered by or used by a spammer at one time or another. The Stop Spammer plugin is one of many spam defenses installed on this website. It goes by just about everything except the credentials you supply…

    This can include all kinds of factors including how your browser interacts with the webpage. I did not see these comments. I would not have looked for them here. They did show up in the WordPress control panel, however they escaped me there, and I wouldn’t have noticed them immediately regardless. I recommend posting general comments like this to the latest blog entry on the front page in the future.

    This page especially is not a good place to post comments. In fact I will lock it now.

    Update: We went back to the previous version. For whatever reason it keeps out all spam, where the newest version is letting one or two trough each day. Also I (Holy) think I know who left these comments, and that they were eventually able to register on the same day without any help.
