Post subject:  Tips for joining the forums

Unfortunately, despite being a small, obscure forum, we still seem to attract our fair share of spambots. Therefore to combat this, all account activations are now manually reviewed. And this can sometimes being a difficult process, especially as a lot of people seem to love being obscure with their information. If you're keen to join the forums, here are few tips:

1. Try to use a 'sensible' username. Quite simply, usernames like 'Akbrr922gng' are not going to be approved.

2. Use a real email address. Spambots will often use weird or random email addresses. So if yours looks suspicious, you probably won't get approved.

3. Include your country of origin. This greatly assists with doing reverse lookups on your source IP.

Apologies if you've been accidentally filtered, but continually cleaning out spam is frustrating :roll:
