Due to some optimization on our registration system to prevent spam bots, new registrations are deactivated until 29th january. Until then the only chance of getting an account registered is to ask a friend to send one of our administrators a private message with your data.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

IMP Note: This is news from SL forums. mygamingtalk.com forums registration is open and was never closed.

This news came from SL forum only.

We had spam registration but none of it made through our Q&A and Captcha in registration page.

Our forums registration was never closed. We use 4 methods to fight against spam:

1. Q&A
2. IP and email check against world wide spam database.
3. ReCapatcha
4. User based email validation.

AFAIK at present only humans can pass through this validation. I have the same set up here and Fearless Assassins forum. I also keep changing Q&A every few weeks.

Even with user based email validation you can have problems :) Spambot softwares have become too smart.

I think with first wave of spam bots, we deleted around 10-15 users, but all where in validation que.
