Currently we, along with many other Invision boards, are getting dozens and dozens of spam registrations per day.

To protect the server and the forum, registration now includes a custom field to filter out automated spammers, as a very simple question.

If you have registered in the past week, but are still waiting for an approval email - please re-register, as your details were almost certainly lost in clearing out the vast number of spam registrations.
