View Full Version : 2012-10-15: New members, please read before registering

There have been a couple of occasions lately where I have had to delete new accounts as I have not been happy with part of the registration process. Aside from the usual anti-spam checks, please consider the following when creating a new account:

Usernames must be at least part alphanumeric. Those consisting of only punctuation, only non-alphanumeric characters or indeed nothing at all will not be approved. This is mainly to allow for ease of communication between members, but there are other administrative issues this presents as well
Anyone registering using a disposable email address will be immediately deleted, as this just screams "spammer" to me.

Hopefully Omega's name doesn't cause any problems? :p

Heh, I actually didn't think of that one ;) Nah, it's fine, I'm more concerned about usernames consisting of just random symbols and punctuation.
