    Hi all,

    A quick notice to our regulars regarding a change we've recently made that will temporarily affect functionality for some users.

    We've installed a plugin which makes life difficult for human spammers. Due to vBulletin's fixed default settings, however, it would have meant that most of our regular registered members (not subscription class!) would have also faced these restrictions (usergroup permissions issue).

    As a workaround, existing members will be transitioned to an identical separate usergroup. I've ensured that the process takes place every 10 minutes indefinitely and automatically (the next scheduled transition was two minutes ago actually).

    You won't need to make any changes to your account, or liaise with us directly, unless you're experiencing unusual restrictions. In the event this takes place, please contact a member of staff.

    We're committed to keeping Anthrogenica free of irritants (spambots or otherwise) and these recent changes are intended to fulfill that purpose. Thank you for your time.
