Note to new members
« on: June 16, 2011, 10:00:11 AM »
Hi all. Love it that you have found us and decided to become a member. Looking forward to your posts and to having a bit of a laugh too.
Please dont worry if your posts do not appear immediately, we have a security system enabled that checks out "bad posts"! Unfortunately it cant work out who are the Good Guys and who are the Bad Guys, so we all have to go through it to start with! Not for long though, so just keep posting!  :)

Yippee!!   ;D ;D

That really is good going! It is so nice to be a member of a forum where you can just be yourself and enjoy the friendly atmosphere!

Well done BL and Bella - you are doing a great job!  ;)

It certainly was the early June - the 2nd if I am not mistaken! A rocky road but an interesting one to start with, and BL has done an amazing job getting recognition in TOTN with his regular column. I think we are succeeding in providing an interesting and open forum for PP related issues and anything else that crops up as a side line! Thanks for all the support of our members - and those yet to register!

This is really good but I do yet again want to say that I am worried something still isn't quite right with perhaps the new members activating their accounts and being able to post. I don't want to be negative and the reason I mention yet again is because I have the interests of the forum at heart and something is niggling me that says there is a problem.

As you know I have mentioned many times that I think it somewhat strange that people go to the trouble of registering and then thats it - we hear no more. Many of the names registering we know to be active forum members of other sites so it seems logical that they would want to post.

Just this last couple of days we have had 3 new members who we all recognise and not one of them has posted. Of course there is no pressure at all on anyone to post and certainly it is up to them but I am just trying to identify why this seems to keep happening?

Please delete or move or whatever this post if you would like to. I just felt that it was worth a mention incase a problem means that people just give up. Hopefully all is well and we can look forward to our new members joining in with their posts soon.  ;D

No problem there eleanor. They cannot activate their accounts. That is totally in BL's and my control.  We no longer have hundreds of spam member requests, which is wonderful!  Of course, when people post is totally down to them, and we look forward to whenever that may be!  :)
Any other thoughts, please let us know, just incase we may have missed something.

No problem Bella and I see that one of our new members has now posted so glad to see I was wrong. As I said it was a concern for the forum and not a negative at all. It was also important for me to make clear in my post that I wasn't putting any pressure on new members to post and it was simply an observation that perhaps they might not be able to especially knowing that there had been problems in the past. Great the war on spammers is being won, that is good news.  ;D
