1. New user accounts (users in the Newly Registered Users group) will have their first post put into the moderation queue. Once your first post is approved, you should be able to post normally. This may temporarily include you if before today you had 5 or fewer posts. If your post is not being approved in a timely manner, please join the IRC channel (#aichallenge on freenode) and let me (Zannick) or another admin or moderator know.
2. All user accounts created on or after 19 Dec 2011 that had 0 posts have been deleted. I apologize if this included anyone legitimate. If this included you, please reregister. (Unfortunately there are still many suspicious-looking accounts that were registered during the last contest; at some future date I will prune older accounts that still have no posts.)
3. Past contest subforums (not including Ants) have been changed to be read-only.
Please continue to report spam through the board's reporting mechanism; it makes it easier to find. Please also feel free to let me know on IRC if the spam problem gets out of hand again.
