I’ve noticed that the our newest member has been the same poster for quite sometime now... since March actually. Another forum I still visit quietly closed forum registration and I wondered if it has happened here, too? As a test I tried to make a new account and it seemed to work (I actually thought it would block me based on my IP address but it didn’t...) but mentioned the account needed to be reviewed by a moderating board. The account I made was called “jumpingjellyfish” btw.

So is there a massive backlog of users waiting for their accounts to be activated? Or is the message board finally dead and nobody’s registering anymore? The first explanation is understandable because of the lax administration nowadays, but the second explanation would be somewhat sad.

And uh, Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

Registration for new members is not closed. Unfortunately, there's a glitch with the forum software which is preventing the administrator, Luke, from activating new accounts. He's currently working on a workaround but it may take some time. I'll let you know if when the issue is resolved.

That’s good to know! Thank you. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I know about some people who try to register but they can't. Does the issue still exist?

Unfortunately, yes. The system doesn't let him log in into the administrator panel to activate new accounts. If you or any of your friends know your way around phpBB, please contact him to give a helping hand at tsdvd@yahoo.com or luke@dvdizzy.com. You can also get a hold of him on Facebook and Twitter as he's the one running the social media accounts.

Whoa! I've been noticing the really low registrations for years now! I had no idea it was a technical problem all along. Just think of all the potential new forum members we may have lost. It's unlikely they'll bother coming back now to reregister even if they learn that the problem has been fixed. :(

Happy to report that Sotiris messaged me today - my account has been reactivated!
Many thanks to Sotiris and Luke!
Does this mean access to the admin panel has been regained? Can new members join again?

I'm glad the issue seems to be resolving itself--possibly / finally! :)

So with all the new fixes and updates, are new people able to register?

Not yet. Reopening registration is more complicated, but we are working on it.
