Registration Question

Post by Dr. Frankenstein » Sun Oct 27, 2019 9:40 pm

Hi guys - a friend of mine tried to sign up on the Forum as a new member and was 'banned' before it could even happen... Anybody know what that's about?

There is an automatic ban system in place. This is the latest ban of 6 today:
Anonymous 81.17.27.140 Mon Oct 28, 2019 9:22 am Banned IP for reason “Found in the Stop Forum Spam database”
There were 16 auto banned yesterday.

I can & will manually ban anyone, for spamming, who gets past the automatic system. It may be your buddy's User Name or IP address is already on that auto list.

I have no idea - he's on a YahooGroups forum for Puchs, and seems legit. I'll pass the info on to him. Is there any way he can get vetted?

Send me a copy of his ban notification and I'll see if I can clear his User Name and IP Address. Note I've not had to do this before ...

OK, thanks - I'll PM you when I get it, but anything I should watch out for, just in case? I don't want to wind up being a Trojan Horse here...I'm on that group too, and I've never had any problems, even though I visit it way less than I do here. Apparently Yahoo is shutting down their YahooGroups forum in December, so there is much chatter about moving it elsewhere. I told him about this site and he said he would check it out. FWIW it's the searsmotorcycleclub on Yahoo, I don't know if you know anything about it.

I knew it existed. Seems they've stopped accepting new posts already.

FYI. Now you know that I'm one of your moderators. The other 2 have been inactive since Jan '19 & Oct '18.

And I haven't heard back from him either, so...? Wait and see, I guess.
