RECRUITMENT ISSUES - PLEASE READ
« on: February 26, 2012, 05:45:20 PM »

Hi gang, just a quick note in regards to new members joining snowtroopers. We still get literally hundreds of applications for membership at the site each week - no joke. Of course, the VAST majority of the applicants are bots, looking to gain access to the boards to shill their fake rolexes, cheap pharmaceuticals or even (heaven forbid) access to adult themed websites (yes, the internet has those - I couldn't believe it either).

As a result, someone has to check through the list of applicants and decide which, if any, are potentially real people that want to join the site. Usually I do this by having a look at the names & corresponding email addresses - if the names include "boba" or "darth", I figure I'm on the right track by inviting them.  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:

So what the hell are you on about, jj? Well I guess I just wanted to say that there is some potential for me to MISS a real applicant during my scanning. IF any members here are suggesting the site to friends - could you please PM me and let me know that someone is trying to gain membership & what they're site name/email address might be? This would certainly let me fast-track the scanning and get invites out to those real people wanting membership here.

Thanks for any help!

Looks that way. My fear is that I'll delete the app of a real person so I let the legit looking ones at least have a chance to activate the account via email confirmation.... But I guess even taking that step won't catch them all.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Just an update - it seems like we're "under siege" by spammers this last couple of days - I've deleted about 40 posts & 5 "new users" in that time frame. MY APOLOGIES if anything salacious gets through & stays up for any length of time, we're doing our very best....  :speechless-smiley-004:
