Due to a recent spate of fraudulent signups, we’ve temporarily disabled new account creation on the BAR. Until further notice, new accounts must be set up by a moderator, and only after being contacted inworld.
We may revert to our old account creation policy in the future, if we can be assured that the fraudsters will behave in a civilized manner.
In other news, we’ve made some changes to our configuration that may speed things up. Please comment here if you notice that things are indeed faster (or slower) than you remember, or if any problems crop up.
