Oh, well, that's sad. I had been using the database last year, then found out about it again. The news of the registrations being disabled was a surprise. I assume there is no current plans of allowing it back, due to server stress?
As suggested above, I may just make the database completely public shortly - no user accounts required. The email server can't handle the number of registrations we're having. Does anyone disagree?

EDIT: Furthermore, the Crash Photos section is also available to all and it has considerably more photos than our database right now:
viewforum.php?f=26
I liked your initial idea behind the login-necessity.

But judging by the many registrations over the last 24/48 hours, I'm assuming we're gonna end up with a large number of "dead" accounts that solely follow the purpose of leeching photos without contributing anything to the forum.

I'm not a fan of that either. But is there another way?

My ideal situation - Anyone with a phpBB3 account can automatically login to the database. Not possible with the software I use to create the database.
