Spambots registering recently...
 
Have you noticed that a lot of bots managed to register to the forum recently? They haven't posted anything harmful so far, but you can tell they aren't real people by looking at their profile. They'll have links or random words posted as a profile message.

I think that members who didn't post anything at all don't appear in the members list. So no one can really reach their profile.

Oh, I clicked the 'Welcome to our newest member' link at the bottom of the main forums page. But you can view their profile by manually entering the user id after http://forum.magicball.net/member.php?u=

Is this due to a (apparently) unsave register system, that should check for bot users?
Normally it should require to input some weird characters that are hard to read, but I really can't remember if that was present here.

I don't know, I'm always on the lookout for cool links to download free movies and TV shows from the internet.
