1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.

  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

    Tell your friend to stop trying to use disposable mail accounts to register. Those are all spamblocked.

    Please confirm the following:

    1. Make sure the email, username, and password are valid and fit the criteria (special characters can cause issues)

    2. Try registering via the Desktop Site, instead of the Mobile Site. If on a phone and using the Chrome App, this can be done by clicking the three dots for the menu, and checking "Desktop Site"
    (This shouldn't be the culprit, but why not test it quick)

    3. Google "What is my IP address" - and enter that #.#.#.# into the lookup, here https://www.dnsbl.info/ and here https://www.projecthoneypot.org/search_ip.php
    If your account is found on those lists, your IP address may have been used by spammers in the past.

    4. Make sure the following email services aren't being used to register:
    yopmail.com ; mailinator.com ; guerrillamail.com ; freemailnow.net ; fastmailnow.com
    Other common spammy email domains are blocked, but those are probably the most common.

    Oh, there may be some javascript required for registration as well- please pause any noscript extensions for Forum.QuestionableQuesting.com while registering.
