Tried signing up back during the Xros Wars days(was a lurker before that) but it required admin approval for some reason and that never happened. Then WTW went down. Looks like it let me register finally though. :D

So me... I'm GsMumbo, I've run many forums in my time(everything from moderator to admin to owner) and built up quite a few from scratch. Love the community and most importantly I love Digimon. So... hi!

We were getting hit with so many spambots that we had to set it for admin approval, and the hit percentage on us approving/not approving wasn't so good. Our old software didn't have much in the way of alternative captchas.

We switched to recaptcha on day 1 of the new software. Within 30 minutes spambots were past it. We switched to a new captcha that requires playing a rudimentary game and thus far the spambots seem confused by it.

Welcome to the site and enjoy.

Ha ha, in that case, welcome-ish to WtW. Glad you're finally one of us.

Weren't the Xros Wars days a long​ time ago?

Welcome to WtW
As MarcFBR mention it wasn't easy to distinguish between bots and humans manually. I did check every single entry by hand and if anything appeared on a spam site, the account was deleted. You may have used a name/ip/email that had been linked to spam in the past.

Nice! So are you a big fan of xros wars. Also what other forums do you run or have you ran in the past?
