  • 2010-11-24 Anti-Spam efforts - no user self-creation

  • 2008-05-26 IRC problems
    If you are using CenterIM for connecting to IRC servers and you're having problems with the connection (e.g. disconnecting every few seconds), please first of all, disable the Captcha function and try again before reporting problems. This bug is already known and will be fixed soon. The reason for this is, that in IRC, there are lots of server-generated messages which trigger the captcha function, and these questions trigger the server to forced disconnection of your client. See bzid:106 for details on this topic.
