Dear readers, lately, we’ve being suffering a massive number of problems in our mail servers related to spam accounts. Basically, those were caused by a LOT of spam bots registering accounts in wuxiaworld. This was somewhat common, but in recent days, the number of fake accounts was off the charts. To give you an idea, those bots made up for 50% of the total registrations.
The good news, adding a simple captcha in the registration form should reduce the impact of those bots by a huge margin. So from now on, the number of fake accounts created is going to be much lower, and I’ll be able to handle those manually by myself.
The bad news is that in the process of getting rid of the tons of bot users, some user accounts were reported as false positives, and deleted along those. So if for any reason, you are unable to log in with your account, it’s quite likely you were one of the false positives. The number of false positives should be arround 1% of the total deletions, but still, it’s not a pleasant thing to have your account deleted for no reason.
So I want to personally apologize for the inconveniences this can cause to those users, and to ask you for your comprehension. We’ll do our best so this does not happen again in the future.
EDIT: To those whose account was deleted, send me an email to [email protected], telling me your username and email, and I’ll try to manually restore them.
