Thank you for bringing that to our attention! That certainly isnt helping the situation. Not sure the reason behind that, but it wasnt me. My only guess would be it was to stop spam accounts as there was a big problem with junk post on a daily basis.

I have now enabled registration again with verification by admin so i will be able to stop the spam bots. But I will personally see that any new members get accepted.

I look forward to seeing more people get involved!

Thank you 😁
Y'all lock registration , then ask why the sites dying and what we think should happen? really?? lol  my case in point... do a mass pm  to everyone registered and ask them back , and give your word not to be Nannies for the cucks and soybois...

As previously stated the registration was locked because of spam accounts.

Since i opened the registration there has been around 50 attempts at registering by spam bot accounts. I have had to reject them all manually.

I will look into a mass email to hopefully welcome back already existing members.

I will also try to keep it more relaxed on the forum providing people dont take the piss!

I think we all still lurk every now and then. Also, a lot of people quit riding or when back to just riding solo. Flatland was around far before Internet forums and will be around much longer afterwards.

Plus, between the flame wars, poser outing and general harassment, it became a relatively volitale place to be. A lot of users didn’t feel welcome and kindly walked away (or freaked the f out). It’s like walking in to your house only to be called names and have sh*t thrown at you. After a while you just start looking for something different.
