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.

  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.

  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.

  5. There will be a pruning of inactive and unused accounts on Aug 7th. Please see the Announcements subforum for more detail.

  6. If your account was banned out of nowhere today and shows no reason, you may have fallen afoul of a software error. Please contact the board with the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page.

    Is there a way to stop receiving emails when I get an alert?
    For example every time someone replies to a thread I'm watching I get an email.

    Sorry if this Is the wrong place for this post

    When you watch a thread, you get the option to choose between receiving e-mail notifications or not. There's also an option in your user preferences to select whether you receive e-mail by default when you watch a thread automatically (e.g. by replying in it).

    You can set the user preference for new thread watches by clicking your username at the top of the screen, then 'Preferences'. Unfortunately, for threads you've already watched, you'll have to manually unwatch each of them and then watch them again while choosing no e-mails.
