New members will be required to be registered 14 days and have 30 posts before they can enjoy most of the stuff here. Before you get all bent out of shape, i have already moved all you guys with a post of 1 to the non probation member group. So if you had 1 post before tonight you can ignore this, if you did not then read on. Probationary members cannot: Start new threads Cannot use the pm box Cannot have signatures Cannot email other members Can only reply to threads every 25 minutes. Cannot have albums etc... How can a new member bypass all of this? Become a supporter and you don't have to deal with the probation period. If you think this is all bullshit then you need to see how many spambots we have already dealt with. Also search this: http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&...5&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&pbx=1&fp=c57b4d0abe2a49a8 You can thank spammers for this lock down. So please dont go around saying this is a hook because that is bullshit!
