I’m happy to say that registrations are back, hopefully for good this time. The XMPP daemon we use, Prosody, now supports SNI on outbound HTTP requests. This was added in the latest release (0.11.7). SNI was necessary for Google’s Captcha service to work. It’s unfortunate that we have to use this service, although all other options have been exhausted to keep spam registrations down.
If you’d like an account now, go ahead and make one! Register now.
