Full Version: A note to those attempting to register
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
If you register from a cellular data network (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, all the MVNO carriers too, etc etc) your registration will be deleted. For various boring technical reasons, on the internet these users appear as just a tiny handful of IP addresses. This means there are literally *100's* of other accounts here using the same address. So there is no way for me to tell if you are or are not a previously banned troll trying to get back in.

So, if you want your registration to count .... don't do it from a proxy and don't do it from TOR and don't do it from your 4G LTE connection on a cellphone.

That concludes this public service announcement.

I’m pretty sure I registered from ATT, although it was a long time ago, and I don’t post often enough to get banned. Hope I don’t get deleted.

Nah, only applies to new registration attempts.
That rules out my boy AngryShock from joining the party over here.

Does all this apply if you use a mobile device connected via WIFI?

Nope, then the registration shows up as your wifi network.

Then PM me what his email address would be when registering and I'll flag that specific one through.
If he can use WiFi and get it to work he should be over for the game and I'll have him set it up here in a bit. I'll send you his email just in case I'm not fully understanding how it all works.

Let's hope the board is ready for Angry.
If you want, I can be in charge of the vetting process. Maybe newbies should have to sit with me for a 30-minute interview?

Why hire you into a position just so I'll have to fill it when I inevitably ban you? 02-13-banana
