Thumbs up Registrations reopened!

After over year of disabling new member regos, registrations have been reopened to visitors! Visitors who want to register must ensure they use an allowable email address and that after they register, they check their email account for the activation code/link. You need to verify and account your account in order to be able to post on the forums!

You can read the Registration guidelines at http://animeboards.com/showthread.php?t=55530.

Remember to read:

1. Forum rules - http://animeboards.com/showthread.php?t=55531
2. Forum FAQ - http://animeboards.com/faq.php?

These 3 pages of information will ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible

For new members, don't be shy and feel free to introduce yourselves in our Introductions forum at http://animeboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2

Reason for banning certain email address domains, is

1. There are very high instances of these domains being used by spammers and trolls

2. Even more of a problem is these free domain providers etc, promote disposable accounts or have quota limits, which means higher chance of these addresses being invalid or ending up in email sent to them from the forums, bouncing back! I had to delete 3,700+ member accounts due to their email address bouncing back over 1,500+ invalid email messages/day - this back logs my email inbox and causes unnecessary loads on the server powering Animeboards.com

If you need to contact the Admin or moderators you can post in the Contact Admin forum here http://animeboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5

Good man. Is this a long-term opening of the registrations or are they going to be closed again soon?

Oh, a bit of a head's up. All the new regos seem like they're starting as "Registered User"s... I went to look at the other zero posters from before and they're junior members. Was that intentional or is it a glitch that hasn't been fixed yet (since I recall so
