As this project is no longer being developed, the only real activity we've been getting here on the support forum has been from spambots registering. Because of this I set the registration to admin-validation and clear it every now and then. I don't plan on actually sorting through the list, just banning IPs that come up... If you need to register for whatever reason or your IP was banned mistakenly, drop me an email at kesha@bunchies.org and I'll get you through the queue.

I've also closed down the community section of this site, since it hasn't been used much, if at all, since 2011. The support sections will remain open for those who need support, although I can't guarantee speedy support since I don't check this place too often (something around once a week). If you need support urgently post it on the forum AND drop me an email at kesha@bunchies.org and I'll try to resolve your issue.

I have talked to Sean and as long as people are using JaxBoards, the service will stay up. So don't worry about things going down or anything like that. I'll definitely forward any major issues to Sean if there are any.

This makes good sense. Since new legitimate members are rare, there's no point in letting the spambots run wild.
Course clear! You got a card.

Yeah it's unfortunate, but I really couldn't advertise JaxBoards anymore in good faith since development halted and there's such a big spambot issue. I mean, it's nice that someone loves JaxBoards so much, it's just unfortunate that they're mostly Spambots!

I'll definitely continue to support this the best I can though, I don't think anything would break in the foreseeable future or anything either...

I agree.

Though if someone wants to work on the source code I could always talk to Sean to push the changes to the service...

Forum software has pretty much been solved, even live updating forums are everywhere these days. I no longer have time to commit to Jaxboards, so here's a few alternatives that I would recommend if you are into the live updating thing:

Discourse - Very well done, free, open source. Authored by the same guys that did StackOverflow.

MyBB - Excellent support community, thousands of mods, skins, etcetera. Also free.

If I could find a few other developers interested in committing time to JaxBoards, I might be convinced to pick it back up.
