To help combat the number of spammers who try to register for the site, a small change has been made to the registration page.

This has necessitated deleting any ICQ numbers that were on user profiles. I don't think this will be a problem, as fewer than 20 people listed such a number and I'm not sure ICQ event exists.

The field is now labelled 'Topfield model number' and to register for the forum, it is now require to enter one of the UK Topfield model numbers. This should stop just about all scripted attempts to sign up.

In my profile, if I fill in the Topfield model number the ICQ logo/link is displayed on my posts. Presumably this is from some residual code.

Yep. Will see if I can find a different logo file somewhere

It's not just a logo, there is a link which takes you off to a strange world where there be Androids lurking. Shocked

That's tweaked now, so it shows the model number with no weird links.

I've never filled in the model number in the profile, but I have now (just to see what is does!)

Looking at my posts I now have an ICQ logo at the bottom and, when clicked, it opens http://www.icq.com/people/about_me.php?to=TF5800.

Is this expected? (i would have thought it just brought up some TF5800 type logo)

Many thanks; it now displays TF5800 as text (a bit boring compared to the icq logo but I was really only trying it to see what it did so no problems)
