All New Users!

You now have to be approved by a member of the staff here in order to be allowed to post. Generally speaking this will be me that does this. It can take 24 hours, and in some cases 48 hours, to get approved. Especially with the holiday weekend coming up, it could take a little longer.

I will work on getting everyone else instructed on how to do this, however please bear with us for the time being. I have deleted quite a few users this morning that are part of the problem we're combatting here, which is spam users.

Thanks for your patience.. I'll try to keep on top of this the best that I can.

Whether or not I feel like letting someone into the site..

Basically, there's a pattern that I see with most of the spammers. There are quite a few accounts that are obviously spam accounts, so they don't get let in. Everyone else does.

this system of "checking for spammers" sounds like a job that needs a team, not just one person.

He probably got through because he was already a member before we started screening. I've seen a few like that.

Not I, said me. LOL.
**off topic**
sk0t, I had no idea you were so close. I'm an Ypsi-tuckian. LOL. Got a bike? If so, you should hook-up with me and some of the VFRD boys/gals, next season.

I don't work too far from ypsi-tucky.. :) I actually work in Novi..

Now as far as bikes go, as long as you're talking the ones you pedal with your feet, I'm always up for that.. If it's the motorized type, sadly I don't.. Wifely won't let me have one, which is a bummer..

I'd be willing to help out with the "sifting through" of the new members..All up to Mr. Sk0t of course. Just let me know. I'd be my way of helping out the site since I'm too dumb to figure out the whole contributer thing..Even though I'd kill for one of those stickers -.-
Heh, let me know :)
