Graphic archive registration disabled

haltSince the spammers registering at Graphic archive greatly outnumbered actual painters, user registration has been disabled. The primary function of the Archive is being easily accessible storage for templates and graphics, not a place for development and comments. So, disabling registration does not change much.

  • If you wish to use Graphic archive as an author, please contact me (VS) or Vilvoh, preferably on forum.
  • If you just want to browse and download files, no registration is needed – all content is visible to guests.
