Alert Info: Recent user bans

Hi all,

I am sure most of you have noticed the massive new new "members" over the last 4 days or so. You'd think that's good news, but unfortunatey it isn't. We have been hit by a spam network of bots and it didn't stop so we had to take action.

These bots signed up with random name's, random IP's and random email addresses so it was very hard for us to find a consistent tracking point. The bots sign up here with us for one reason only, to spam the community with useless junk. We have now made some drastic changes to the signup routines and we have temporarily banned all new members that joined our community after February 1st.

It has been extremly hard for us to figure out who's human and who's not among all these signups, but if we have banned you unrightfully, please use the contact form and we will lift the ban right away. You may also sign up with a temporary account and contact one of the staff members and we'll get you back on track.

We apologize the inconvenience and all the problems this may have caused you, but we try to keep our community as safe and sound as possible.

Thank you all for understanding! Now get back to your workouts
