    New Registrations

    I have temporarily re-opened the New Registration facility. As before
    if I find that we are receiving hundreds of computer generated and
    'scam' emails I will, once again, shut down New Registrations.

    Only one so far, from Vietnam and IP address listed on 10 spam blacklist sites.

    Not a very good start.

    Three more today, again from Vietnam, all four so far trying to get registered as COPPA users.

    No computer generated user names so far which looks a bit more promising.

    If you wish to join us and are in the process of registering please supply salient details as below, if we are satisfied that the request is genuine we will open an account for you.

    a) User Name - User names must be recognizable names or nicknames - cdky_fu, or similar will not be accepted.
    b) E-mail Address - Personal email addresses only to be used, Company email addresses, especially those linked to commercial sales sites are not acceptable.

    c) Birth Date - A correct date of birth is to be given. The request to join date is not acceptable. Birth dates may be hidden, if desired, but will be checked for viability.
    d) Biography - Biography means just that. Limited details of gender, and salient personal facts should be given. E.G. Male, mechanic, nearing retirement.
    e) Location means what it says. Potential users giving location as 'XXX', when our routine check shows them living in 'YYY' will not be authorised.
    f) Interests - Interests e.g. Biking, fine food, ancient buildings etc. are welcomed.
    g) Occupation - Occupation may be given (preferred) or left blank. 'Retired' is acceptable as an occupation. 'Retired ex-IT Manager' is even more explanatory.

    No one will be authorised until the above information is given to an acceptable standard.

    PLEASE NOTE;
    i) Spam posting is strictly forbidden.
    ii) Advertising, in posts, threads or signatures is not permitted.
    iii) Websites may be referenced within posts only if directly relevant to, and in support of the particular thread.
    iv) All posts are to be in UK or US English unless the use of a non-English language is relevant to the thread and the posts within it.

    Posters infringing i) to iv) above will be banned immediately and permanently.
