Hi there. I'm fairly new to forums so I don't have much on my profile. So I'm not sure how to fix a problem I'm having. Over on the new Growtopia forums I can't seem to register. I'm trying the same name as here, Using a gmail email, six letter long password, and doing everything else right, But it says that the Forums don't allow spammers. Here are the problems 1. How would it know I'm a spammer, 2. I can't register.

Can anyone help me with this?

It could be entirely possible that your IP address, username, email, or something of the like has been caught in some sort of spam filter or database. I'm not sure why these forums would be any different than the Growtopia forums, but I do know they both run Akismet (https://akismet.com). Akismet is anti-spam service, and from the looks of it, sometimes information is mistakenly added to their database for no apparent reason. If you feel like this would be the issue, You can reach their contact page HERE (https://akismet.com/contact/).

While Akismet's database as far as I know isn't publicly searchable, you can find quite a few available online, such as this one:

I would personally just try sending Growtopia support an email, however. You can reach them at support@growtopiagame.com

Can you try logging in the other growtopia forums, with the same forum name and password you use here. I want to see what happens when you do, as it moved most of the information on our accounts to the new forums.

Huh, both of these forums use the same anti-spam database, so it's weird one would let you in and one wouldn't. Maybe you were at a slightly different IP address when you tried to register at the other one?
