I deleted ~150 spam accounts (well, I hope they were all spam accounts). This week the forum software will be updated; once that is done I will probably delete some more accounts: spam rate per day is exceeding 20 atm, mostly from unique accounts. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'd like to keep my account and get my posts approved, too.

I've tried to make a few posts (related to getting MLT working), none are getting through. I also would not like to be blocked/deleted.

I would like my account to not be deleted. And go through anti-spam filter.

Sorry about that. Board needs some serious maintenance, and I didn't have time. Thesis defense in November. :)

Thanks for fixing that. Also, good luck with the thesis.

Maintenance is not done yet. :) I need to upgrade to the latest version to get rid of all the spammers, but a previous attempt failed horribly making the admin panel inaccessible. I need to do a manual backup of the database (without using the build-in backup function), then reinstall, then restore the backup. Getting access to phpmyadmin proved to be a major hurdle. I have that now, but there's a lot of work left. Maybe next week.

Many thanks for the maintenance. Take your time. :)
