Yeh, I noticed there is no guest things whatsoever. I wanted a friend to check something out but she couldn't get into the site. Part of me likes it, it really adds to the personality of the site, and if that is what it takes to stop that porn stuff I'm all for it, but the guest thing had its advantages too. :(

This is what Rick wanted to do way back in december or January. (I think) You either had to be a member or no access. This is why I signed up when I did. I have never regreted that. Should have registered years earlier though.

:)

OLD 10-20 and ALL,

Yes, you now have to sign in. I wanted it this way in the beginning, but didn't set it up that way per members request. However, since this forum has been under attack from 'no-gooders,' I had to tighten up security. This is the only way to keep unwanted posts (like the previous porn posts) off of the forum. You see, the person(s) posting porn on this site was able to do so because registration didn't require a valid email address check, hence, the person(s) could just keep signing back up under a fake email address and post away. Now, in order to register to the forum, you have to provide a valid email address - if a fake email address is used, registration cannot be completed.

I really hated having to do it this way, but it is the only way to keep those kind of postings off of this forum. I really don't think anyone would post such garbage when they know that they had to provide their real email address at registration.

Rick

Hey Rick. I have a problem, though. I can only sign in with the "remember me" box ticked. I work in a centre with a number of comps, though, so I don't want it to remember each one, because then if someone stumbles over here by accident, the site will let them in. Or won't it?

Yeh, thanks Rick. It is more than worth it. I was just curious. Hey, whatever has to be done has to be done, bottom line. Definately makes it a personable website now. Its like the "Boys club, no girls allowed" clubhouse but we allow girls in. LOL. Its all good. Thanks for everything you do Rick.
