Throughout tonight and tomorrow morning, I will be launching bits and pieces of a new registration process. This will entirely replace the phpBB registration process. This is the first phase of launching the all-new SEIBERTRON.com forums over the course of the next month. The reason I am launching the new registration process ahead of the rest of the changes is to help the forum staff deal with the influx of spam-bots that we are receiving on a daily basis.

Getting rid of phpBB has been something I've wanted to do for a very, very long time. The new SEIBERTRON.com forums will enable me to make a sweeping set of changes that will effect the entire website from Heavy Metal War to the Ultimate Caption Contest to the Seibertronian Profiles to the News Section. There will be no more work arounds that deal with limitations of a forum system from a 3rd party. I have every bit of confidence that these changes will be welcomed by the entire SEIBERTRON.com community as you guys start seeing these changes take place.

In order to make the transition a little smoother to the new registration process, I have disabled registrations for the time being. Within the hour, I will be disabling the ability to edit user accounts. Disabling these functions will allow me to download the most current version of the site's master user database to ensure that all of your data makes it to the new version of the user database.

Because this involves one of the most used database tables on the website, there will most likely be errors throughout the various sections of the website.

I will let the community know when I'm ready to have people help finding areas on the website that need to be upgraded to use the new database. Please be patient throughout this process. I will keep the community posted as further details become available. Thank you for your understanding.
