New sign-ups?

Postby Brad R. Torgersen » Mon Jul 18, 2011 8:17 am

I am getting a bit concerned. Since I locked out the spammers again, we've not had any new (live human) sign-ups either.

Does anyone have any writing friends they'd like to encourage to sign up? I need them to test-drive the process and let me know if there are glitches.

I have been trying to push some of the people in my college's writer's guild to join the forums. One did, but she doesn't post on here (she normally writes zombie hunter stories). The other who I know hasn't joined but should is dabbling into dark fantasy.

There's a WotF thread over at Absolute Write. I went ahead and posted a link to the forum there, so maybe some people will wander over.

This is Brad, writing as the general admin. I've made some more changes to the user database and the sign-up process. Please let me know if anyone hears of anyone having trouble getting onto the forum. I've also cleaned out all of the inactive and spam accounts from the past few years.

Thanks for all the hard work, Brad. It's greatly appreciated.

Ah, I see a new change: "You cannot make another post so soon after your last." Aha. Doo de doo de dooooo, twiddle twiddle, ....how 'bout now? :lol:

Yes and Hi. I'm new today. Only problem so far is that I can't access pictures.

If you're trying to load an avatar, I've turned off local image storage -- you'll have to link to an off-site avatar. If you need help figuring that out, let me know.
