    My users all of a sudden are having toruble registering due to this error:

    Failed to connect to the BotScout database. Please try again later.

    Can someone please help? I have no clue what this is...

    Thanks

    Do you have any anti-spam mods installed, such as XenUtiles?

    Yes, I do....but why would it only hit one user every now and then?

    Thank you!

    Taking the error literally, it is failing to connect to BotScout. It's a service issue.

    You never told us which add-on. Take Jaxel's XenUtiles for example, has an option to allow registration when the servers are down. With that option unchecked, you might get this type of inconsistent behavior.
    Put a checkmark in the box!
