Issues with Hotmail/Outlook

Hi everyone! Unfortunately, Microsoft has placed this server on a block list, and they're no longer accepting emails from our server.  This unfortunately affects MSN, Hotmail, Outlook, and any other Microsoft-owned or hosted email domains.  We encourage all registered authors and readers (current or prospective) to consider using Gmail as an alternative for contact with Ad Astra.  We're verified with Google and don't anticipate problems given the many hoops we've jumped through to ensure smooth mail delivery.

Beyond fixing the site registration issues, I added a new theme to Ad Astra. Inspired by the Witch Head Nebula, with a public domain image from NASA used as the header, it's perfect for anyone who likes a bit of green! You can find it over on the drop-down menu, along with Fire and Void.

I also switched the default display back to Fire, but you can change your themes to whichever you prefer!

New Registration protocol
All right! I have finally figured out the way to completely get rid of all erroneous spam registrations. Namely, by removing onsite registration ALL TOGETHER! BWAHAHAHA!

Really, though, I have indeed included an alternative method. If you'll look above on the menu bar, you'll see 'Register' there, which will take you to a Google form. There, if you're a new user, you can request a penname and yours truly will create it for you.

This means that gmail and yahoo are both again allowed to be used as sign-up e-mails!

So, hopefully the days of spam registration and spam reviews are over. Let's see how it goes.
