Plastic Classic Forum...

This is for a different forum, but some of you guys might go there and perhaps be able to help me...



I tried registering for PC forum, and says I need to contact administrator to become active...



Except I can't contact administrator unless I "Log In"...!!!



So I'm kinda stuck...



Anybody know how to contact someone in charge over there...??

Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

You could create another user ID (with a dummy e-mail), then login and ask for help.

From the top of the site's registration page...

"Please note that you will need to enter a valid e-mail address before your account is activated. The administrator will review your account and if approved you will receive an e-mail at the address you specified."

Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

I may try the dual login and then have them drop one...

Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

Squiddy,
It took me some time a year or two ago to get 'approved' at the PC forum as well. Just checked over there and Maine Sail posted a query for you.
The new owner/moderator of the PC forum responded:

"The past few months I've been getting several hundred registration requests per day, and as you can guess, most are from spammer/scammer types, and I just mow 'em down. I've changed the 'anti-bot' measures to try and make it tougher for auto-registrations now which should make *real* registrations be more obvious, so have the fellow re-register, and I'll get him activated. I don't have memberships on those forums IIRC, so could you pass along that message to him? Many thanks!"

If there is a way to indicate that you are not a spammer or spam bot - do so.

As MS says, the traffic there is pretty light but there are some interesting posts if you're willing to look 'em up.

Try again.

Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

I did sign up today with a second name/address and was "approved" within minutes...probably thanks to Maine...

but still nothing on the first name so I'll use active account to hopefully get first choice approved..

Then I'll just have to start posting and argueing with myself to boost traffic

Re: Plastic Classic Forum...

I am an admin on another sailing site, and we just got through waging war with an onslaught of spam-bots. I spent hours sorting the legit registered users from the bot accounts. The spammers keep finding ways past the counter-measures that are meant to stop them. At one point we resorted to manually approving members by e-mail but we were quickly swamped. Fortunately we had a techie beef up our security by adding screening questions that only a human could answer.

It sounds like the guys running that site were having the same problem keeping the riff-raff out!
