I take this BlackBoard software isn't all that great?

Not great, and absurdly expensive for being not great. (I much prefer Moodle, which is the open source equivalent for course software, but its forum stuff leaves a lot to be desired, too. Fine for a simple forum within a course, not so great for wide-ranging conversation.)

http://cms.ecauldron.net/mybb/

Note: This is a fairly basic setup of MyBB. If we use it, it would be tweaked some to fit our needs just as SMF was.[/b]

So...  I've been a little behind on this because of a combination of spoon shortage and the problems with my shoulder (which are now almost gone).  I just tried to register.  And was told my details match that of a known spammer, so I was denied registration.

::sigh::

I don't have the time right this second, but maybe later I'll try changing some of the details to see if a slightly different user name, or a different email address, or even registering from a different IP, makes a difference.  I have no idea how any of those things of mine would be associated with a known spammer, though.  And if I can't register, obviously it's a non-starter for me.

That's strange. The system we use here checks the same database and there is no report of trouble here. Wait a minute. The MyBB is set to check usernames as well as email and ip. I thought I had turned off the username check (as it generates too many false positives). The username check is off now -- of course, I thought it was off before. Sad

Apparently it stuck this time; I was able to register.  Thanks!

Good. Blocking registration solely on the fact that a spammer used that logon name somewhere on the net isn't a very good idea.
