    help with sigforum

    Hi Guys;

    I was hoping somebody can help me getting in touch with the mods at sigforum. I am trying to register there with the same user name (OwensDad) and I received the e-mail verification e-mail after signing up, but I can not sign in as it tells me that the account needs manual approval from the mods. This has been the status since Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Just wanted to check if that is normal processing time, or if there is some problem and I need to re-register.

    Thank you everyone!

    I didn't have that issue, but I joined in 2004. I'd retry. I forget who the mods are now.

    Don't feel too bad. I can't even register since I have a Yahoo account. Yahoo is not accepted for some stupid reason. Hopefully, your situation will be worked out.

    It will take several days to become a registered user.

    I remember that it took forever for me to be able to post their...and this was maybe 6 weeks ago when I joined.

    For reasons unknown (possibly related to spam?) they don't accept GMail, Yahoo or certain types of AOHell e-mail addresses for registration. Are you using one of these?

    It's because The Owner and Moderator Parabellum bans so many people that he wants to make it hard for them to get back on just using a different E-mail.

    It actually works... well, it takes someone an addition maybe 4 minutes to go through the motions.

    I've been waiting for 8 weeks now for the email verification. Doesn't sound like they want additional forum members.

    Well, if I remember, those e-mail addresses was blocked here last year for about a week when we were being attacked by someone who kept rejoining. It cuts down on the spammers too. If U are an admin, U can appreciate blocking those types of addresses once you start having issues. But yea - it sucks for some people.

    Don't feel bad - I e-mailed one of them too on another issue 2 days ago and have yet to hear back.

    Yep, it works quite well, so well in fact I've been banned over there for who knows what "reason" and they refuse to return e-mail requests why.

    Hmm...I joined late last year and I've not had any issues. I'm sure there are forum problems most everywhere; it takes at least three people to be able to run one message board. Too much time can be spent on them leading to burnout or just plain lack of fresh ideas.

    I've also gotten a bit of good information there so my recommendation is to try to hang in there.

    ciao!

    i like it here. no probems and i want the diversified comments from a group like we have here. when you go to a specific forum that specializes in a certain manufacturer, i think you miss out on a lot of 'well rounded' comments and opinions. i want to hear the negative along with the positive.

    Thumbs down

    I just wanted to add that I was denied registration at the aforementioned site last week. I sent an email to the admin asking why I was being denied and never recieved a reply. I guess they don't new members. Oh well, I'm glad I found this site instead.

    I tried to register on that site and told i was banned when I had never been on the site before. Sounds like a screwed up place anyway.

    Generally, from what I understand, the reason is that because its very easy to make an email account through those services and they wish to be able to track down people if they make certain illegal statements

    I'm registered on sigforum.com. Don't go there often, but if you are registering with a web-based email addy, it could take some time and persuading. Just keep trying to contact the mods, but don't go overboard.

    Actually, I started off at that forum - Sigforum.com - but I can't seem to get "approved". When researching "help with sigforum.com", this forum came up (this thread actually).

    Not sure what the deal is over there - I even emailed the admin. Too bad. Seems to be some knowledgeable people over there...just can't manage to get approved so I can participate.

    Oh well.

    I just got accepted over there by simply changing my user name when re-registering. Strange.

    Para just went on another binge and Banned B27 and BrainOnSigs. They were long timers and well liked by all... except Para that is... Para doesnt like anyone more flashy, more popular, more wealthy, more educated, more skilled, etc. He banned the guy that started 2aforum because he liked to tell of the famous people he meets in his work, so Para smarted of to him and called him a bragart. There was a reply and that was enough reason for Para to ban him. BrainOnSigs is an excellent photographer and enjoyed sharing his wildlife pics... Para likes to bait people into getting banned. It's a game to him to try to stay the most popular poster there. Not a very nice way to behave. But it's his site.

    Sometimes you will not be allowed there if your IP address shows up as the same as a banned user had. This can happen if you use the same ISP as the other fellow, I believe.
