So I started talking to a guy I met through some craigslist posts. I thought he was a club4ag member because he is looking for something currently posted in the WTB section...
"Nah I haven’t been accepted to that
or not sure if for some reason they’re not letting people in anymore."
I clarified by asking, "club4ag.com? The OG corolla forum." To which he replied, "Yup, I tried creating an account a while back but they didn’t allow me to."
I find this hard to believe but, at the same time, this guy has no reason to lie.
This is probably accurate if the guy tried to make an account in the last month. up until
around 2-1/2 months ago, there were about 10 new accounts being registered every day,
and 9 out of 10 would be spammers. That meant an average of one genuine new account
being manually approved and accepted per day... typical of registrations for the last year.
Then, about 2-1/2 months back, a CAPCHA feature was added to reduce the number of
spammer registration that made it thru to the approval stage. This immediately reduced
the number of new registrations requiring approval down to one per day. Then, about one
month ago the number of new registrations requiring approval dropped to zero per day.
Taking a quick look it appears that the CAPCHA feature is inoperative, and that will be
the reason that no new registrations get thru. Fixing that is a system admin job and
I shall endeavour to bring the matter to the attention of the appropriate people
