I've got good news for those of you who previously wanted to register an account in the VC&G Discussion Forums but couldn't: the forums are open once again for new member registration.
Registration has been closed for a while because of a recent influx of spambots. But thanks to a couple new anti-spam measures I put in place, I can finally re-open the forum to new members. Sorry it took so long — hopefully the new spambot-deterrents will hold up. If not, we also have moderators on hand to chase the evil spambots away.
