For non-english people, there are the "localized" forums at least that can be of some help. I'm not that useful on the "international" forum, as I'm contributing to ManjaroFR.com (guess what, I'm french :) ). While searching for a good system to let people signing in again, that's a viable alternative.

Cheers to phil and the rest of the team for securing things.
I'm new to manjaro, it' rocks!

BTW, like the person above, I'm also slightly sad to see that forums will be closed to googlers who are not registered. as a newbie I find myself googling lots of time.
But as he mentioned  if it helps to stop the attacks, then great :)

Forum closed? ??? I don't think so. I just accessed the forum with a different browser that has never visited the forum before. I wanted to see if there was a message for unregistered users explaining denial of access. However without logging in, I was able to access the forum as 'Guest', see the list of recent posts, and read the most recent one.

Just to let you all know, registration of new accounts is not closed. The Admin controls were reset to enable each registration to be assessed on a case by case basis, to look for any signs of potential trolls.

I know because I was responsible for this process during the fiercest phase of the recent trolling attack. People can register but it might take a little while to be okayed.

Thanks,

Ruziel.

Phil, I've been using Linux for 8+ years and have never found such a great distro as Manjaro.  You guys are amazing!!  We need brilliant minds like yours putting great Linux distros like Manjaro together for the rest of us. :)

Phil & team, I want to bolster you up. This is a great distro! In my eyes you guys really achieved something. Thumbs up for your great work!  :)

There will always be differences but I trust in Phil's vision. It's your "baby" and I'm sure you're doing the right things!

Hi team, having been a Global Moderator on SalineOS before they had to shut down, I can understand your problems.  Most of ours were advertisement related.  Seems people don't understand or care how much it takes to moderate and keep up with doing the fine job you are doing.  It takes out the fun if you have to watch for the trolls.  Just saying we appreciate your efforts.

Shocking ?, not really, it's internet
the playground of immature minds some of which are sunken in the endlessness of human stupidity
i can hardly immagine some members to stop using the distribution because of some premature imbecille.
seriously, the community is to nice for that

Why, what's happening Phil?
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.
