    make 'em wait

    Just an idea :
    make all new members wait till a global mod or admin has checked over their 'entry form' before they are allowed to access the forum ..............

    This way the obviously 'naughty' names can be weeded out, and we will not have posts from tossers who tag themselves as c**tman

    would also make the special one have to come up with a whole new line of tags too.

    the recently banned list is mainly / all him anyway, and most / all of his tags are just filth.

    those who choose that type of tag, obviously have NO intention of being a useul member,
    so why allow them to post ?

    Sorry to disillusion you old chap, but they are already changing tactics..................

    The "silly names" ones are easy, and give members a chance to shed a few negs?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Hi foxy,

    We're starting to get a few that aren't the Spec too...no offense to the holder of this tag but...'I Am Maggot' is not what I would call a quality tag.

    Eg

    The guy was sat on a stack of bibles with a .45ACP jammed against his temple..............

    He told "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth"...............well next comes the sodium pentathol and scopolamine....................

    I shall resolve the "differences" using electricity?

    Hey Hey,

    I think that having moderator approval would help the community (current members) but it would be detrimental to the forum and JupM... How many of the 50,000+ members (or however many... we're said to have)... are one or two time posters, than pop by only when they need help? If someone knew stumbles along and is having problems at work and wants to ask a question... they have to wait for a mod to approve their registration? They'll go else where and that could have been a future contributing member to the site.. Also it leaves a way for people like Spec to effectively DoS the forum... It's obvious he has nothing better to do with his time.. He could spend the entire day in his basement doing nothing by signing up for fake memberships in order to overwhelm the mods... The only time he'd have to take a break is when he got more peanut butter for his dog to lick off his balls...

    Peace

    Speaking as someone who individually approves every single account on her forum, it's a pain in the ass. And I've only got about 1 signing up a day. It would really be a pain for AO. You have to check IP's, cross-reference them (which the software does for you, but it's still another step, same with e-mail addresses...it would quickly become a little more work than a volunteer would really enjoy on a site this size.

    Why not make filling all the details in the user profile mandatory . That way it would take a little longer for new accounts to be made and may eventually annoy the type of people we are talking about enough so they stop making so many accounts.

    Also, it would tell us more obout new genuine mebers!

    I think that nokia has a good point there...................sure they will lie and b/s but at least it makes them take the time.
