Forum Restrictions

Postby BradW on Wed Mar 01, 2006 6:07 pm

Hi Guys,

Unfortunately we have had problems with spam being posted on the forum, up till now the forum has allowed posting from 'unregistered guests', but I've got better things to do than sit here deleting spam, so I've had to change it now so that only registered members can post, Guests can still read the posts, but cannot answer or post new topics.

There is no charge to registering and any information given is held in the strictest confidence, so please if you can contribute or benefit from the forum please register.

Cheers

Brad

Is there restrictions on PM functionality with new forum members? I'm not able to send new pm's.

Hi Frank, and Welcome :-)

Yes you cannot send PM's until you have posted (and had approved) three posts.

It's to stop abuse which has happened in the past, guys register and then immediately start sending spam both to the Forum and by PM.

I've already approved two of your posts, reply to this and it will be your third, once I've approved it you be free to PM and post as required.

Cheers
