Site Reopens for Editing and Registration

I spent the last 2 days getting the site back in shape so that it is possible for existing or new people to edit.

I have had to delete 500,000 spam accounts, over 1 million posts and 25 million user sessions which you'd normally see on a site as large as Amazon. The database size dropped by 80%. The site should now be more responsive.

In order to combat bot signups I have created a dozen UO specific challenge questions. I will closely monitor registrations over the next few days and if the bots start trickling in, I will have to shut off new registrations and figure something else out.

If you want to update the Main Page of UOGuide please contact me and I will give you access. Be sure to include your username in the message.

Important Note: Your first post on the forum has to be approved by a moderator. This is to prevent spam posts from being able to post on here.

I found the reopen information accidentally. Good to see that the informations can be refreshed. I love it.
