  • User Signup Policy

    I have decided after much thought to keep Z20Soarer.Org a confirmed signup process that requires individual validation on my part.

    Whilst it would be nice to leave it open registration so anyone can start posting straight away, the reality is that the current registration Human Verification systems are a pita. The REPCATCHA system is ok, and stops most Bot Signups but a few still get through the net. And Image verification.. well lets not go there.

    Therefore the new policy will be that if you sign up, I will individually verify whether or not you are a Human.. as this is the only way I fully trust to make sure if a member is legit or not.

    That means you need to fill out the following correctly during the registration process.

    1. Email Address needs to be accurate. Try to use an email that doesn't sound so bogus. If you have an email like MZ204LYF@hotmail.com i am more likely to tick it as legit than if you have an email like fnwfruwwhnluh@gmail.com.

    2. Please mark in your Location/Timezone CORRECTLY. This is important. The reason is, when i run a reverse DNS and IPinfo Whois on your signup IP, if you are not actually in the Country you say you are, I will delete you automatically. For example don't put your timezone as GMT-10hrs (HAWAII) if you're actually signing up from an IP in Latvia.

    3. Try to fill out as much info about you as you can. Remember not all details are visible by forum members, and some info in your signup process helps us distinguish you from Bots as well. A user that I see with the "Interests" box filled out as "Cars, Chicks, Tits and Video Games" will be far more likely to be accepted than a user who signs up and has a description marked "http://0nlin3-pharmacy-p1lls.for.you-Cialis-Viagr4.ru"

    4. I will not send notification email if you do get deleted. You will simply be deleted, so if you retry to sign up with EXACTLY the same credentials and still get knocked back, then i will permit you to email me but only to tell me you're a real person.

    5. I do log in peridocially and cull userlists. If you have not logged in for more than a year, I will assume that you have either a) sold your soarer and bought a nissan, b) have died, c) have become shipwrecked on a desert island, or d) joined the church of jesus christ for latter day saints. If you are inactive for a year I will delete. This is fair enough.. I don't want to manage a database of users that don't post and just take up space. I want the server running quick and efficient.

    Please do not send me emails asking why you are having trouble registering for the forums and your account keeps getting deleted just because you cant read a simple fucking set of rules.

    I do only log in every second day or so, so unfortunately you will have to wait for verification.. The Z20Soarer.Org forums are that good.. that I'm sure you can wait an extra day to become an active part of it. It won't kill you so chill out and wait.

    Other than that, If you have followed these steps then you now will be an active part of the forums so welcome to our community! Your moderators are hamgatan, CoFF33 and Looonie.

      OK Its coming up to that time again where I am culling Userlists.

      If you have not logged in for more than a year, Sorry.. you're canned. Sign back up again and try to log in more frequently if you want your account to stay active.

      EDIT: I have purged about 80 Users, but I have decided to change the deletion policy slightly. Therefore if you have more than 100 Posts, you get to remain.. (as you've made a contribution to the forums therefore that information should be indexable and credited forthwith) That has left only GT-50-AR and Big_Z alive this time round. The remaining users were either 0 posts or less than 30.

                          So I've just logged on to find 296 new user signups. 3 of which are legit. We are being bombed with spam bots unfortunately so if you are a legitimate signup then we apologise if you get accidentally deleted in the process.
