PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE REGISTERING AT ROVER800.INFO

Post by Richard Moss » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:32 pm

In common with just about every forum on the internet, we are constantly bombarded with spammers trying to register and advertise their various "products" on our forum.

In order to defeat these spammers we have to manually approve EVERY registration on this forum. We probably approve 1 genuine registration for every 6-10 spammers that we delete and occasionally we get it wrong and delete a genuine application. You can reduce the risk of being one of those who is accidentally denied access by doing the following:

1) Pick a sensible, recognisable, username. You may think that "viagra-boy", "road racer" or "crack-seller" are funny but we'll mark you down as spammers if you do!

2) Fill in your profile. If you don't, we may assume that you are a spammer. If you give us your location, some personal info, details of your car etc. then we stand a chance of seeing that you're genuine. The "INTERESTS" or "SIGNATURE"sections of the profile are good for this.

3) We're not infallible - there is a chance that we may mistakenly delete a genuine applicant. This will almost always be because they've not put enough personal info on to the registration form for us to be able to see that they are a genuine applicant. If this happens, send us an email and when we are happy that you're genuine we'll sort you out with membership

4) Be patient. EVERY single registration has to be approved or denied manually and whilst some of us spend much too much time on the forum, it may take a while to get around to you.

5) Please note that in signing up to join the Rover800.info forum, you are giving your permission for Rover800.info to continue to display your posts, comments, photographs and other such material even if you leave, or are removed from, the forum



Thank you.

I've only been doing this since yesterday but I have already seen a few new registrations that don't have any details filled in.

Please as Rich has already said fill in what you can just to seperate yourself from the spammers.

If they haven't done so already, they probably ignored this thread, so posting a reminder in a thread they won't read doesn't really do much ;)
