The forum was open and accepting new members from 7/15 to 7/23 when Ethan shut it down again to stop spammers. There were some 40-50 new member accounts that signed up over that period, but only 4 or 5 appear to be actual active members.Ricardus said:I have a FB friend who says he has been trying to register for months and keeps getting the message "Account is awaiting approval"
Any ideas what's up with that?
The date of his sign up attempt could help too. But no promises.Ricardus said:I just asked him his username.
Right now we are wrestling with hundreds/thousands of spam posts if we don't limit/control membership. It will get better but please be patient.But as a passionate DIY guy, MONTHS seems like a really long time for a user to have to wait. Seems like this is going to discourage dozens upon dozens of potential users.
