Problems with registering as a new member - auto emails!
      #122146 - 24/12/08 04:10 PM

We are experiencing a fair number of prospective members having problems joining NitroExpress.com as a result of not receiving the AUTO emails generated by the forums software.

We have tested joining up and always received the AUTO emails so are unaware of what is causing the problems. They could be a problem with the software, servers used etc.

But more likely the emails are being filtered or stopped outside our servers eg by spam filtering software which also can stop legitimate emails as well. AUTO emails may well be filtered by some spam filtering software on ISPs, email servers, PCs etc.

So if you are a PROSPECTIVE MEMBER having these problems I will join you up manually.


*************************


PLEASE SEND TO ME YOUR:

login name
display name
email address
location
suggested password

Also please include a brief paragraph or two on why you want to join the NitroExpress.com Forums.


***************************


We get a lot of attempts by spammers to join, so in some cases your application may be deleted by mistake. If you tell us why your are interested, it makes a big difference.


****************************


I will manually confirm your email address.

Please send the email to:

Nitro (AT) NitroExpress.com

substituting an @ in the appropriate place (ie I get enough spam without putting my email address openly).

I hope this works for those prospective members having problems.

I progressed a back log of manual membership applications today. Signed them up, approved them and sent out emails.

Everything should be up to date.

Sorry for the long delay for a few of them.

Hope these members enjoy the site.

I've worked through some old emails in the past week.

And sent out reply emails or manually joined people up.

Unfortunately you may have problems for two reasons:

1. Spammers. We manually check every membership application. We check your linked website, we check your IP address, we check your location, we sometimes check the email address, where it exists in the real world. If it looks suspicious it gets binned!

If this happens to you and you are a real member interested constructively in the site, we apologise. There is a manual mechanism to join. Also tell us why you are interested.

But we also review new members, if you are a spammer and change your details later, you will get BINNED with no query or right of response.

2. Email Verifications. These continue not to get through to a lot of people, unfortunately the spammers seem to get the emails, and real people sometimes do not.

The system sends the emails properly, but they get stopped somewhere for some reason.

The manual joining system exists for you. But if your email is not correct or is not maintained, it is a condition of staying a member, so if a false one is used, your account may get closed.


***


Unfortunately all of the above is time consuming, so sometimes it takes time to get to emails and manual applications. So if it took too long to get to your email query, all I can do is apologise. And get to it when there is time.


I hope everyone becoming a member has fun, joins in the discussions, shares their photos, ask or answers questions but mainly has fun.

Regards

NitroX

Though there are still more to work through. Hidden among thousands of spam emails.

Just to let any new prospective members know whom may be experiencing troubles in joining. I have a large back log to work through and will be answering them soon, plus manually joining up new members where they are having trouble.
