Unfortunately, spam, and worse, is a big problem on any web board.

New User registrations to this forum are screened by Admin. All genuine registrations are activated.
However, registrations from outtside EU, North America, Australia and New Zealand are automatically deleted. Therefore, new users from outside these countries should please request registration by email to: info421 AT irishpapermoney DOT com, and then register their username using the same email address.

This is the only way to screen for spam registrations, which sometimes happen in floods of hundreds at a time.
Users are welcome from all countries.

The new test for humans, features the design elements on an Irish note. The answer is easy, for a human.
Here's a clue, for those of us who are not collectors.

I have closed the admin contact message facility ‘Contact Us’ link at the bottom of all pages as web bots have begun to send it spam, now up to a rate of a bit under a hundred an hour—damned computers! This renders it completely useless as a form of contact. Anyone needing to contact Admin, please use the email address on the top post of this thread.

The board contact facility will remain closed until I can find a way to block the spam :)

If you wish to send large images of banknotes, please send them by www.wetransfer.com which is an excellent free file transfer service.

Spam rears its ugly head again :o
Our latest spammer, now not so sadly deceased :lol:, was terminated while he was still making malicious posts.
Not bad going for a Moddy to catch spammers in the act 8-) 8-) , but I was at my desk at the time when the email alert came in :mrgreen:, so, no problemo, as the cyborg said to the human.

I have reactivated the function for new registrations to be activated by Admin. I guess we'll just have to go with that for the time being.
Can't have an open registration process if the board is under attack.

User registration captcha has been reverted to a simple question.

Potential new registrants should note the details of the first post in this thread.
