You may or may not be aware of the reason that registration to CDG once were disabled, and the short version is spam bots. 60000 of them.

I have over the past 6 months tried out several different spam bot countermeasures while allowing registrations but requiring admin activation, until I found a combination that works properly.
We have had the current setup for about two months, and have had 0 bot registrations, while gaining 3 new members.

I believe gaining new members is absolutely necessary in order to keep the community alive, so I have taken on the task of at least twice a week going through new registrations and vetting them as best I can.
I have gone through and deleted all of the sixty thousand spam bots, 250 at a time. Some humans may have been caught in the crossfire, so I ask anyone that still hasn't gained access that you re-register and read below.

While we allow any kind of username or email, some may look like bots at first glance and there is currently no method of allowing new members write something about themselves on the forums, while disallowing bots the same.
Currently, the quickest way to have your account activated is to contact me personally either on steam, gamebanana, or polycount. This way, the whole process will go much faster for everyone.

Hopefully the current countermeasures prove over time to be effective, and the registration-floodgates will once again be opened completely.

Have a nice day, and welcome to CDG :)

I was wondering why I was getting mails from CDG in my inbox all of the sudden. :P
