Read This First: Profiles!

Postby Hogan » Tue Jun 05, 2007 12:16 pm

Getting a profile on the Dragonboard is easy, and everybody is welcome to join... that is, everybody who is not a spambot or otherwise a false profile used for tracking, spamming etc.
We are waging a ongoing war againts such profiles and are continually deleting them en mass as they appear. Sometimes, unfortunately, a ligid profile is deleted by a mistake, and that could be yours...

One of the ways to avoid this is:

1) Make a post! Profiles are usually deleted after the board has been cleared of spam, so profiles left with a postnumber more than 0 is generally left alone.
2) Be sure that your profile contains some "Human" information. Spammers try to copy this method, but its usually easy to say whether it has been written by a Human or an automated spambot.

SHOULD your profile get deleted by a mistake, contact Admin (by mail) and kick him in the crotch!

Also note, multiple profiles are not accepted.

If you loose your password or wants to have the name of your profile changed, contact Admin either through mail or PM.

Should you sign up for a profile and your confirmation e-mail for activation never arrive, first check out your spam-filter to see if it has been caught there as this is highly possible. Should this not be the case, contact Admin for manual activation.

It has come to my attention that some people who sign up for a profil, never receive any confirmation e-mail and therefore cannot activate their profiles.

Should this happen to you, first check out you spam-filter to see if the e-mail has been caught here. If there's still no trace of it, contact your resident Admin for manual activation of the account.
