NEW - Requirements for new members, 11-12-2008
« on: November 12, 2008, 06:03:03 PM »

Hi all,

Wearing the Admin hat here. I've seen a spike in spam activity in the last 24 hours or so and have killed a few threads that were started by spammers. That got old fast, so I've decided to change the new membership registration process from "wide open" to "make me believe you are a real person interested in discussing these trucks and motors."

The process is simple and has two parts:

1. Complete the Registration process as you would to join any forum -- click the Registration button and provide the necessary information, etc.

2. Send an email to admin@22rte-trucks.com, and include a brief explanation of why you want to join the forum. It doesn't need to be a novel, but it does need to provide enough detail to establish that you are genuinely interested in these trucks and aren't a spammer. I will respect your privacy and will never share your email address with a third party. Be patient after sending the email. I'll try to approve all legitimate membership requests within 24 hours.

Existing members do not need to do anything; just keep posting as usual.  Grin

Thanks, and apologies for the inconvenience,

-Jeff

Just an update to clarify a few things about this policy:

1. All unapproved membership requests are kept in the queue for 7 days, or until I receive your email. Any unapproved membership request is dropped after 7 days, but you can resubmit.

2. You have to send me an "I am real and want to discuss 22RTE trucks" email, or your membership request is rejected. Again, I don't need your life story, I just need some communication to prove you are real and have a legitimate interest in our discussions.

3. Periodically, I compare the IP addresses of all submitted membership requests against several blacklists of known spam-originating IP addresses. If the IP address of the submitter is on a blacklist, their membership request is rejected,
