New members/usernames


Post by Red Baron » Tue Sep 18, 2012 2:28 pm

When signing up on this board, please select a readable "username". We are getting between 5-20 so called new members everyday, all which are typical "Spam" usernames. It takes a good 15 to 20 minutes to verify if these users are legit or just "spammers". From now on, when a new user signs up and the username looks even remotely like a "Spam" username, the account will be deleted immediately.

I agree, that's the way. It takes far too long to go through the IP addresses. It is also advisable to state your location. It can be changed later .
