Registering on the Meteobridge forum
« on: April 21, 2022, 12:51:42 PM »
I've been trying to register on the Meteobridge forum but I never got the email with the registration link. Can this take several days to receive it?

The forum is under a bit of a spam barrage at the moment and some functionality has been removed to deal with that I think. Looks like it now includes registration.

Thanks. Yeah I noticed some strangeness going on in the forum this morning.

I guess that Boris hadn't relied on two separate captcha mechanisms for the meteobridge forum, so let in a bunch of robot miscreants and is taking action to suppress in the future.  Yep.. the PHPbb site just relies on Google reCaptcha which has been pretty thoroughly broken by the miscreants.

I am still unable to register. It says if you have trouble registering you should contact one of the board administrators. I've looked everywhere and cannot find a way to do this. Seems you have to be signed in to do this LOL. And I cannot find the "contact us" form.

Can you please tell me the email you wanted to be registered for?

The Meteobridge forum has been flagged as spam host by some mail providers. We try to remove that, but can take time. So it is your email provider blocking the communication.
