Registration and first message on the forum!

Postby Freki » Wed 11 Apr 2012 16:36

Hello,

Few days ago, some spams appeared on the forum, so we have decided to strengthen the registration system.

As a new user, now, you have to:
- Validate your registration by email,
- Wait until a moderator approves your first message.

We just want to avoid advertising and spam, so be patient if your message is not validated within 5 minutes!

Thank you for your understanding.

Hello,

Recently the forums have been attacked by commercial spambots/spamusers. Those posted posts full of links to dangerous, illegal and fraudulent websites.
We have a lot of experience with overwhelming amounts of such spam on other forums owned by Focus Home Interactive. In order to prevent that this even starts to happen here, we introduced a new feature:

Every newly registered user is put into a special user group. Your first post on the forums will have to approved by the Moderation before it goes live. This means that there may be a time gap between creating your post and actually seeing your post in the thread.

We are very, very sorry for the inconveniences, but we hope that you understand. It is a measure to keep this forums an enjoyable place for discussion about Wargame. We don't want to see this to turn into a bazaar for sports sneakers or handbags.

Usually your post should be approved within 1 hour at European day times. It may take longer in the American nights, as we only have one active North American moderator. We are sorry for this.

If you have any problems or questions feel free to contact one of the following users by PM:
