cool to see you have made it, however nothing that a proxy cant get past and then it is just letting potential good members not have access in the future from those time zones. Maybe it will have a use for someone tho.

Just out of curiosity, what's the logic behind disallowing certain time zones from registering?

That makes more sense to me than disallowing an entire timezone from registering, lol.

Installed. Thanks a lot for this mod. It's super simple to install, and works wonderfully. I've been getting hit hard by spammers lately who register with a -12:00 timezone and this mod does it's job in telling them to f*** off!

I had to go into the XML document and customize the text that I wanted displayed to the spammer. Maybe the next version you release can have a section to put in a custom message?

THANKS!!

Well, all I can say is that I feel sorry for people living in that timezone who want to register...

You could've just modified the phrase. I made it phrased so people could have a multi-lingual forum.

Have seen the comments asking why. All I will say is that it works like a charm and solves a big problem with spammers. If you don't have the problem, don't install it. For the rest of us poor souls, thanks for doing this.

All they have to do is choose another timezone.... It doesn't stop them from registering.
