New Forum Policy!



If you do not intend to post then do not register! There are no benefits to registering except being able to post. Accounts with zero posts will be deleted periodically. Blame the spammers.

Re: New Forum Policy!

For users registered before 1 Jan 2009, 206 of them have zero posts.

For users registered on or after 1 Jan 2009, 777 of them have zero posts - and half of those have registered since 1 Nov 2009.

I'm now getting about 20 more per day and that rate seems to be increasing.

So I'm about to make a user purge.

Re: New Forum Policy!

So now I see several ways in which they are using their profile page for spamming. So there's going to be a new rule:

New users: do not put anything in your profile, especially your signature, until after you have made a few posts and proved to me that you are not a spammer. Users with zero posts and anything in their signature will be deleted immediately.
