I've been emailing with a new owner and he said he can not get signed up on DMCtalk.

Here is what I got from email:


I have tried but have not gotten anything back on approval to post or communicate with members. I have started an account, username skywalker77. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Dave,

Thanks for the heads up. Please let your friend know that he should be able to post now. If he still has any issues, please let me know!!

Another owner can not register "DickLash". I met him at DCS and suggested he join. Can you look into this problem?

In most cases when a user can not register, the issue is that they can't be verified. This happens when a user registers and does not complete the registration by emailing us so we can verify they are actually interested and not a bot. We have so many bots trying to register I have to clear the list often. If people don't email completing registration their names are cleared with the list as well, as I have no way of knowing who is real and who isn't. Would you mind asking them to re register and email me immediately so I can complete their registration.

Ahh, that explains a lot. I tried to register for a while in the beginning of the year and did also not hear anything, but I must have missed the step whereby I had to also send an email. Well, it finally worked out. I noticed that my login was working but I was not able to post anything. So I contacted the web admin address and "voila" it started to work.

Thanks for keeping the bots away!:chairshot:

Something is wrong with getting new members accepted. I have not seen what is involved but it must not work for everybody.

I guess he gave up.

Tried again & rejected.�� Reason given - "invalid referrer specified".�� I used your name David McKeen as my referrer.�� What is a "bot"?�������������������������� Dick Lash

What is a "bot"?

It is a program that figures out how to create an account and then creates thousands of them or simply creates a few and posts ads in the forum.

Here is your problem: from the Urban Dictionary
DICKLASH:

an insult implying someone got hurt their neck from s**king too much d**k

The female equivalent of being pu**y whipped.

It's probably a system blocked user name
