Solved: 10 Years, 7 Months ago Registration problem - MyBB rejects everyone as spammers
Solved: 10 Years, 7 Months ago

I tried to find this topic through the MyBB forum search, but nothing came up.

The forum I am running has registered nearly 500 people just fine. Suddenly, it is rejecting everyone. It doesn't matter what username, e-mail, or IP is used.

I am getting this error, which is referenced in the member.lang.php file:
language file field name: error_spam_deny
message: Our systems detect that you may be a spammer and therefore you have been denied registration. If you feel this is a mistake, please contact the Administrator.

What is causing this error to happen? All I did is install the honeypot captcha plugin between the time it worked, and now. Since then I deleted the captcha plugin thinking that was the culprit. But registrations are still being denied.

Me, as well as a handful of other users from around the world so far, have connected to the forum, agreed to the terms, and then started to fill out the forum application, including properly identifying MyBB's captcha values. All of that works. But when I or any other user hits "Submit" to send the registration form, the error immediately follows on its own page.

When I did some checking, these are the facts:
1. I can log in to my normal account, so no IP filtering is happening
2. However, whether I make a new account with the same IP or totally unique IP, I am always denied registration and called a spammer.

Does anyone know what is causing this, or how to fix it?
