VGC really needs 2 step verification or something when signing up to stop all these spam bots :p

I assume that current users would get grandfathered in, though?

I meant just for new users signing up. Having something like Captcha or the 'I'm not a bot' verification will fix a lot of problems

VGC doesn't already have that?

But you'd think the email verification would stop them anyway, although apparently that's only required if your name is Kapi

I don't remembe if they do, as it's been years since I made my account.

I don't remember having that, but I don't really remember what was required anyways :p

You do need an email, but you don't need to verify right away to use VGC, so you could just use a filler email and be good to go :/

You do if your name is Kapi. That's why I never used my first account, never received the email to verify and it wouldn't let me log in until I verified. Pretty sure I've made another alt since and couldn't use that until I had verified either.

VGC is Kapiist confirmed!

The same thing happened to me! My original account was Oheao, but I couldn't access my email to confirm it, so I had to make a new account months later, which was this one.



Did you use a hotmail/outlook email account?

Can't actually remember, think it may have been my talktalk account.

Probably many of us. I originally joined as Nanaki XII in December of 2007 and was locked out of my account and the password reset feature never worked at the time. I created this account in December 2008. Unfortunately someone stole the name of NanakiXIII that I wanted a few months before and never even used or posted with it. Which is why I'm stuck with NanakiXI since then haha.

 

On another note, I can't believe it almost decade since I first signed up and about 11-12 years when I started first lurking.
