I don't know where else to put this, but my friend has been waiting for a month to get his account activated. He has emailed admins and stuff, no help. Today I saw a thread on gearslutz where a bunch of people were asking to have their accounts activated. Anyone know whats going on?

yes,

Your friend needs to go to the donate button at the bottom of the page and donate $1

This will prove to Ethan that he is not a spam bot.

Is this honest or sarcastic?

we have a spam problem so request a $1 contribution up front to keep spammers from banking accounts that they activate later.

I am only aware of one pending application (JonathanLuginbill).

a) what is your friend's name and approximate time of his sign up attempt?
b) if he hasn't already, ask him to donate $1
c) advise him to monitor his paypal email address .

We have experienced people donating more than $1 which is nice but gets confused with other forum member donations. "and" we have had people not respond to emails sent to their paypal email address.

Honest... I wouldn't sh__ you.

I just deleted a spammer who set up his account back in 2014 and has been inactive until today...

I suspect there are more.

So far several spam attacks from accounts that were set up last summer when Ethan left the door open too long.

I expect more... Probably the same one spammer... using multiple banked accounts.

Of course thank you Ethan, without you this place would not exist.

PS: Don't forget the donate button at bottom of the page but try not to donate exactly $1 as that could be confused for a new member sign-up proof of life.  ;D
