but i also believe it should be easier to find, like say automatically send it to an inbox/make them read it.
Good idea, I've added a link for this topic to the Welcome PM that gets sent to all new members.
If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

I didn't find it that big of a dead, sure it is annoying waiting for mods to approve your posts but after you get 20 posts (which isn't that hard), things go smooth.  8)


Though it would be nice for those who have donated to be exempted from this as I doubt those who have donated would try and ruin the forums.  :)
Aye mate you don't know me so y don't you shut tf up ok buddy :)

Hello everyone - reviving a long-dead topic here. Today we have relaxed the post threshold from 20 posts to 10 posts for new accounts. Once you hit 10 posts you will have full access to site features - I will update the OP with the new info. We will continue to relax these requirements until we start to see spammers become an issue again.
