ALL MEMBERS: FILL IN YOUR STYLES FIELD

Postby nianfong on Mon Jun 01, 2009 9:33 am

If you don't fill in your styles field we will likely not activate your account. Due to a recent influx of spambots on the board, we have started doing admin acct activating.

Shouldn't it be everyone does this who hasn't already so they don't get the "spambot fucktard" designation. ;D

although, that is an awesome designation. lol

Fong, if the spammer accounts are getting too bad, you might want to shut down registration and only open it up for a few days at the beginning of each month.
I've admin'd forums before and I can sympathize with what you're going through. The fuggin' spammers never stop. It can wear you down after a while.

Thanks to all of the admins for all the hard work that y'all do.

actually ever since we implemented the styles field requirement and the admin activation, the total of new spambots are zero. :D

This is a good start; how about everyone having to post with their full name? None of these ghey nick names internet people love so much.

I'm fairly sure this is mentioned once (or more) a year. It never happens.

Yeah, you can keep that full real name business. Some of us value a bit of anonymity for many very valid reasons. If you want to know someone's name, you can simply ask them in a PM.

Hey, I like my ghey nickname. ;) Besides, anyone who's been here a while and paid attention knows who I am and what I train. That's all you need to know. Name rank and social, baby.
