Due to some issues with OneAll Social Login that resulted into people being able to circumvent the admin approval mode when registering (and thus, getting forum access instantly), we have currently disabled registrations until we have confirmed that admin approval can still be used without any way it can be circumvented. That said, closed-beta is pretty much closed to registrations by now anyway so it probably doesn't matter at this point.
Whoever created an account that can be identified will not be put back into validating mode, though, and to make it fair to everyone, the person that signed up normally and awaits approval will be approved. So everyone except the unidentified account can still login and post as they see fit.
Domain name ownership was also transfered to Scipi, because of pimath's hiatus and potential issues with his parents.
