Are YOU having trouble registering? READ THIS, DO IT NOW

Post by Ceros » 19 Oct 2009, 02:45

TMW NOW USES A WEB BASED REGISTRATION PROCESS

Go here to register: http://themanaworld.org/registration.php

You CANNOT register in game/with the client, you must use the above link.

TMW has recently come under various attacks by individual(s) utilizing automated character creation tools to lag the server and flood individuals. Due to these attacks, in game character creation has been disabled, and all registration is now handled via the registration web page (see above). If you have any problems creating a character, please join the official freenode.net room #themanaworld and ask for help.


If you need help connecting to IRC, please look at the following links:

http://java.freenode.net//index.php?cha ... emanaworld
http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=747


Edit: Adding the following words so that players utilizing search rather then just blindly posting a support post may find this threaD: UnRegistered ID , can't register, cannot register, having trouble registering, not able to make new account, why i no make new character, broken registration, unable to register, registration help, Character Creation Error

Moved from Linux/Unix Support to News because this problem is relevant to everyone.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

At the moment, Bjorn (thorbjorn on IRC), Platyna, maybe ElvenProgrammer, and myself have such access.

So you won't be logging into our email accounts to send spam? Well that's obvious, but will spam still be sent to our emails? :lol:
That's what is meant.

Imo, this post should be put in sticky if it'll be the way to do now to create new accounts.

The main page would not hurt.

Also in the next release it'd be nice to have the client pop up the default browser with this site when you hit the register button.

Why not just make the next client have a CAPTCHA? Sent from the server?

Come back with a foolproof and non-annoying captcha design and we'll come back to that idea.

What about a captcha that displays an image of something that's unique to the game (e.g. Mooboo) that requires the individual look to the wiki to get the name (or know that creature/NPC)? I suppose someone could run some sort of script against it...
