Default Forum upgrade

Dear visitor,

Today we have upgraded our forums, which was necessary due to a large number of spambots which started to post (automated) spam messages all over the forums.

Previously, our forum already had Captcha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captcha) integrated in order to stop spambots from registering as users on our forums. Up until now, this worked fine, but apparently the spammers have found a way to defeat the most recent Captcha technologies that we had integrated.

In order to prevent this from happening, we have upgraded our forums so that we could integrate reCAPTCHA (http://recaptcha.net), a newer and more advanced system to prevent spambots from registering. Moreover, it actually makes it easier for humans to read the verification text, which is obviously also an advantage.

Should you - for any reason - have any problem registering, then please let us know.

Thank you!
