I've had a couple of the Oklahoma folks tell me they're having trouble signing up here - is there a trick to it? I did mine so long ago I think I was still waiting on dialup at the time.

Thanks - I think that worked for one of them.

Member "Ted Kennedy" (maybe "TedKennedy") says he can login, but he can't post or anything. Can you see anything from your side?

It's a very discerning group here and takes time for proper vetting. :uhoh:

He needs to follow the user-verification instructions that were sent to acockrell@nordam.com

He tried again with a different email address, and now is "in the cue for moderation".

I'm guessing his first email was blocking the autoreplies? He checked his spam folder, but only found potted meat.

The word "ironic" is in disuse today due to the two facts that most people don't know what it means, and because all of the 'attempted' uses are so far from the real meaning of the word as to render its attempted use as null.

But this.. this is good.

The best example of irony can be observed first thing in the morning, "standing for the queen."

Can't piss until it goes down.
Won't go down until you piss.

It's in the best interest of the board if I don't allow any more statists in so they don't keep trying to control things.

Sockeye needs to click on the link that was sent to him in email to complete the registration.

Tower is fully registered, and should not be having trouble posting.

When I joined, sent my email in and in 2 weeks I got my OK. Pretty painless.

I'm pretty much the only one approving new members.

I do not do it daily.

I rarely do it weekly.

I will do it fairly promptly if somebody mentions it to me.

Its more like a monthly thing otherwise. I'm sure its gone longer.

Oh ok , cool . I thought this place was a secret society and new recruits had to show they wanted to be here by constant request for membership . Not really a bad thing now that im in . If you got approved in 24 hours we might get a lot more mikes !

Well that might explain why there are about 20 active posters, although I can't complain because I wouldn't do that job either. I guess most of the registration attempts are bots or flippers prowling the marketplace anyway.

I think we should turn him away; unless he has come in friendship.

"Beowulf, you've come to us in friendship, and because
Of the reception your father found at court.
Edgetho had begun a bitter feud,
Killing Hathlaf, a Wulfing warrior:
Your father's countrymen were afraid of war,
If he returned to his home, and they turned him away"

Ahem...

Beowulf is already amongst us.

BEO WOLF is requesting to be, your doggerel notwithstanding...

Biggest Reason I DELETE new registrations: Putting US/USA/United States in your Location. People need to read the registration instructions that explicitly tell you NOT to put these as your location.

Well, that should help increase membership of the site.

The instructions are fairly clear, and as this is a written forum I expect people can read said instructions.

Put your actual City / State if you're in the US (DO NOT Put US/USA/United States), if you're from outside the US Put your City / Country and also a reason you want to register. You can change this to anything you want once you're registered, but if you can't follow the directions you look like a spambot and get deleted. The most common location put down for obvious spam bots is.. US / USA / United States / U.S.A. - That's why I specifically ask people NOT to put this as their location when they register.
