NEW MEMBERS and Banned User Account Info:

Postby 521 Houston » Sun Mar 25, 2007 7:16 pm

Due to the high level of spamming attempts aimed at this forum, WWPDX has started banning user accounts and IP netranges to stop the spammers from accessing our forum.

We regret the necessary implementation of this action, but unfortunately it has become necessary to keep our forum clean!

NEW MEMBERS NOTE: THIS IS IMPORTANT!

1) YOU MUST SUPPLY A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS TO RECEIVE THE ACTIVATION EMAIL!

THIS FORUM REQUIRES ACTIVATION BY AN ADMINISTRATOR, AND YOUR ACCOUNT DEPENDS ON YOU FOLLOWING THE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS IN YOUR EMAILS!

2) YOU MUST REPLY TO THE ACTIVATION EMAIL YOU RECEIVE UPON REGISTERING FOR ADMIN ACTIVATION OF YOUR ACCOUNT! DO NOT EDIT THE EMAIL! YOUR REPLY MUST CONTAIN THE ORIGINAL REGISTRATION EMAIL YOU RECEIVED! YOU MAY ONLY REMOVE YOUR PASSWORD!!

NO REPLY = NO ACTIVATION!


EMAILS RECEIVED THAT HAVE BEEN ALTERED OR FAILING TO SHOW ORIGINAL INTACT MESSAGE (LESS PASSWORD ONLY) WILL RESULT IN ACCOUNT NOT BEING ACTIVATED, AND MOST LIKELY REMOVED!

3) YOU MUST POST AN INTRODUCTION UPON ACTIVATION AND LOG-IN!!

YOU ARE ALLOWED THREE (3) DAYS MAXIMUM TO COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION PROCESS OR YOUR ACCOUNT IS AUTOMATICALLY REMOVED. THIS APPLIES TO ALL MEMBER ACCOUNTS!

NO INTRO POST = ACCOUNT REMOVED!


FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE ABOVE STEPS WILL RESULT IN YOUR ACCOUNT BEING REMOVED FROM THIS FORUM! NO EXCEPTIONS!


NEW MEMBERS NOTE: We are requesting all new members to post an introduction in the WELCOME FORUM to help us distinguish between accounts that are actual people seeking legitimate membership to WWPDX, and Spam-Bots that are attempting to spam our forum and members. As part of the activation email you received upon registering your account, you will find this request from the WWPDX Administration. It takes less than ONE MINUTE to make a post. Your co-operation is appreciated! Your action will prevent deactivation of your account.

MEMBERS WITH ZERO POSTS: We are starting a forum cleanup - if you have ZERO POSTS, PLEASE at least make a post in the WELCOME FORUM so that we will know you are an active member and NOT a spammer! This is IMPORTANT for the security of our forum! It only takes one minute to make a post, and it will insure that your account will not be deactivated/deleted!

PLEASE BE SURE "Administration(at)wwpdx.com" is added to your address book, or you may not be able to receive important Admin emails and notifications!!!


BANNED MEMBERS/USER ACCOUNTS NOTE: If in the event your account was/is effected by this ban, please email Administration(at)wwpdx.com with your user name, reason for suspected banning if known, your interest in being a part of this forum, and IP address if possible, so we can evaluate your account and reinstate your account if a mistake has occurred.

Thank you for your assistance and understanding!

Our actions are necessary to keep a clean forum, and make visiting here a pleasant and enjoyable event for our members.
Our members are our top priority, and their security and safety is important to us! We apologize for any inconveniences our efforts may cause.

WWPDX Administration
