That's a Teljair thing.
I've approved Irbax_Smoo.
There's about 12,000 pending accounts right now, which have to be manually checked. I'd venture around 98% are spam accounts. We need to set up something that prompts pending accounts to private message the mods or something, so that we get PM'd when actual real people are waiting for approval.
How about a special section only pending accounts can see where they have to post. Then the first mod to see them can check them out and handle it.
Also, select all 12k and delete.
Let me show you how the guards used to do it.
Waiting room would just be an amazing amount of bots just spamming everything.... Everything.
Make it a single thread. They can't make new threads. Post in this thread for access. The spam posts are easily ignored.
Real solution is to get a better human verification system. No way other forums have this much trouble.

Thanks Soy - I don't know them too well, but they seemed like good people over there, and since I'd plugged RR once or twice over there they decided to come to me to mention the challenge. I'm sure with Tyen shit it's challenging to sift through.
I nitpick - sue me~
Yeah, the waiting room would still semi-activate accounts which was the main problem when activated accounts started spamming PMs.
I thought suineg dated back to the initial wow days? I know Rav protected him from a couple drama bombs, I just assumed the Millie meltdown was one of those.
