Dear users,

As many of you will have noticed, there has been a large increase in the amount of spam on BCUK of late. In order to protect our community from these attacks, we have decided that as of early next week, it will temporarily not be possible to register new accounts on

This will cut down on spam drastically while we implement some changes that we believe will continue to keep spam to a minimum. Naturally, general performance will also improve as we delete the mountains of spam that have been building up recently.

The block is likely to remain in place for several days, so if you or anyone you know is thinking about registering on, please do it before the weekend.

We apologise for the temporary inconvenience that this will cause, however we are convinced that the improvements that will result will hugely benefit the community as a whole.

Thanks for your understanding,
your BCUK team
