[Bug Fix] Anonymous submissions have been patched

Post by thetinytatertot » Sun Dec 15, 2019 5:40 pm

The last update introduced a bug that allowed anonymous submissions. Although the submissions that had gone through were actually good, the potential for abuse is too high to keep that open. Please do register if you'd like to continue contributing. You can sign up for a Haven account using our registration form, or for even faster registration, connect one of your social networking accounts (e.g., gmail, Discord, Steam...). This second method is safe, and we do not receive your password at all.

DF2Haven.com's main threat is spam bots. If you're interested in this topic, you can find me in the Haven or official DF Discord server to discuss, but in short, our site has a regular spam bot infestation. At times, the number of spam bots knocking at the site's doors outnumber the # of real visitors by 2-3x. For this reason, we cannot allow anonymous submissions to the site. Thanks for understanding.
