In light of our recent experience, I've made a couple of changes to the registration process for new members.

From this point on, new registrations will be required to include their real name and their zip code. The instructions for these fields state that this information is visible only to staff members, is not displayed on public profile information, and is not searchable to non-staff members.

This isn't a cure-all, but it could help us to vet new members when we are unfamiliar with them, and it might help dissuade some of the spam registrations we receive regularly.

If you edit your profile information, these fields will be required of existing members as well.

Thanks snooch. Could this be made a sticky so it doesn't get lost?
