ten new users registered in the space of ten minutes. This is why I'm forced to use admin activation. without it, we'd be hip deep in Saak sock puppets and spammers.

If you're a real person,find a way to let me know. Have someone vouch for you or something. I aint got time to run IP checks on this many people.

Can you put a sticky at the top of each of the five "forums" and/or a "splash page" that let's prospective entities know the process?

IIRC I've gotten a whole 2 people to join so far in the past 3 years one of which is still semi active. But that doesn't cover the attrition, hecque that's not even "break even".

Are most DogHouse members recruited or they just find us in google and can't resist ??

I don't know.

Someone vouched for him. Lavderdad sent me a pm at another forum. Nonsense names and ".RU" e-mail address gets you left out.

Despite countermeasures, we are still swamped by spammers. Sometimes dozens per day.

MSNBot media was listed as a registered user at the time of this posting. Seen at the bottom. Likely a spam account?

Those are search engine bots. Harmless.

BTW, there are four different board styles to chose from in your user control panel/ board preferences/ style :

two silver backgrounds, one World of Warcraft, and one green background with white type.

I find the last one easiest on the eyes.

The WoW style does not support the rep point mod. You cannot see rep points nor award them when viewing the board with this style.
