That was recently tired, but even simpler. Too many people do not have a clue.

PMs have now been re-enabled for new (moderated) members, but with a sending limit of once per twenty minutes.

Well, that should make hacking this place not fun anymore.

We've also tightened up the signup process and PM privs during that process, swapped math questions for audio questions, and made some other changes, that hopefully will see us uneventfully through to the move to XF in month or so.

Keep in mind this wasn't really a hack, just a scripted signup of new fake members, so more akin to an abuse of what's allowed. The system worked as intended, but vBulletin isn't great at preventing spammy members signing up, and we had very lenient PM restrictions set for those new members.

Although this was not an intrusion but more a misuse of what was already available, it sounds like it all worked out for the better. I appreciate all the hard work and that we were kept in the loop with what was happening and our questions answered quickly. Thank you!
