WebSite

EVERY now and then people come to IRC or send an E-mail asking for a Tux Machines user account to be created. It's the only way to get comments or forum posts through. It's now scarce. That's because for over a year the registration option has been disabled, due to spam that floods the database with spam users who potentially spam the Web site too (comments, forum posts, etc.), demonstrating a real issue that I have had with PHP-Nuke, MediaWiki, Drupal, and WordPress in some other Web sites. It is a common issue with no perfect solution to it. Since spammers use random names (causing consistency issues in the database) and fake E-mail addresses this can get the server blacklisted by some mail servers, which in itself is problematic.

We have enabled database-based blacklists to prevent some registrations by spammers and this will hopefully allow us to restore community participation, not just from long-time readers who registered years ago.
