Two New Users
« on: September 03, 2017, 05:28:33 AM »
Two new users I pointed here one a hoax believer, one a good guy, both say they have an initial email saying their requests are being considered but getting no follow up.

The hoax believer is a "Photographic expert" who thinks he knows more than he does, Tom Brinckman (That's all the info I have)

The good guy is Bruce Merrill and his username is bruce92106.

Thanks for the heads up, Bryan. I don't always get the email notifications from the forum when someone joins, and Tapatalk doesn't show the number of users waiting for approval.

I've approved bruce92106, but I'm not sure which account belongs to Tom Brinckman. None of the other unapproved accounts really jump out at me as real people (I get a lot of fake spam accounts). Could you please ask him to confirm what username he used?

Oh goody!. He will run into a few people here who ARE photographic experts, including Kiwi and myself (both of us having been professionals in the trade).

I've had a query from a metabunk member saying his application here hasn't been approved? He is 'James Mercer' on that forum and may have applied twice.

Thanks :)

I don't see any users with that name. I may have mistaken the account for a spammer and rejected it. Please ask him to register again with the same name so I can approve his account.

I think this account (the one I'm using to post right now) is the sixth time I've attempted to join the board.  Maybe it's the fifth, maybe the seventh, I've lost count.  Fortunately I have a lot of email addresses.  Judging by the confirmation email, this latest registration attempt was on January 7th; I can't really tell when it was approved, but it must have been sometime in the last couple weeks or so.

There was surely something I saw back in 2017 or 2016 that caused me to want to register, but I can't remember what it was.

In any event, hello everyone.

I apologize for the delay in approving accounts. There are several reasons for that:

  • I have a day job that often turns into an evening job, and don't have as much time to manage the forum as I used to
  • I normally only view the forum on my phone using Tapatalk, which doesn't notify me of new users
  • The notification emails that the forum sends me almost always go to my spam folder
  • 9 out of 10 of the new users are spammers, so if the username looks at all suspicious to me I will reject the account
  • Actual legit new users are not too common nowadays
  • The new users that I do approve give me crap about the delay so I start to wonder "Why do I even bother?"

Thank you, bknight. :) It's technically less than zilch since I have to pay for the hosting... which is currently not earning my business. Sorry if sound a bit grumpy today. Just annoyed by the server issues.
