Short version: if you find that you can't post or log in, and it gives an error saying that your account isn't active, then just click the link to resend the activation email.

Longer version: Spam is becoming a big problem. As in, it takes me 20 minutes per day to clean out the spam posts. There are thousands of spam bots that have created accounts and gotten around the basic image protection offered by phpBB. So what I've done is to update the bot protection to ask a question (regarding World of Darkness games), and deactivated any account that doesn't have a character associated with it.

If you have any problems logging on, please let me know.
