Hi Folks,

In an on-going effort to creack down on spammers, I'm going to begin deleting message board account that have email addresses that are bouncing back. At first, I'll delete accounts that have been set up recently but never activated because the email address provided during sign-up process was invalid. This won't affect most users on this board.

However, I request that if you're an active user on this message board, you go to your profile page and ensure that you have an updated valid working email address listed for your profile.

There are few rules on this forum, but there is a condition that each account have a valid email address.

Over the next couple of months, I'm going to begin deleting accounts that have invaid email addresses that are bouncing back to us every time someone receives a "Topic Replied" or Private Message notification.

Not trying to be a hard-ass here. But every well-oiled machine needs to run lean!

Music Is The Best!

Once I had a problem that even if I configured my forum account for not receiving forum notifications for replies and etc. I would get the forum automatic messages "spamming" my email account. I think I have private messaged you, Mikey, about that... I have gave up opening that email account in part because of that...

Hi MGG,

Are you still having the problem? You shouldn't be.

You can also check the "Stop Watching This Topic" at the bottom of the page.

I just checked my email account and, yes I still keep getting messages when people post, despite of my profile config.

Always notify me of replies:
Sends an e-mail when someone replies to a topic you have posted in. This can be changed whenever you post.
[is set to] no.


It seems to be just some particular threads, so I will click on the link you mentioned. Thanks...

PS. I don't remember having clicked on the "Watch this thread for replies", but I remember wondering what was that link for :oops: :P

When you reply to a thread, it automatically notifys you of a reply, unless you've specified that you don't want replies. I am assuming that anything you answered prior to specifying no replies is still sending you emails.

I'll look into it our end.

Hi administrator,

I'm new here and happy as a clam to be able to interact with so many Frank fans. I'm having one problem, though, and wondering if I did something wrong . . . I got a private message from Twenty Small Cigars, I replied, then he replied, then my next two replies to him seem to have not made it out of the outbox. So I tried PMing someone else, and it sat in the outbox, too. Have I lost the ability to PM, or am I just not doing it right?

Sarah

PMs sit in your outbox until the person you sent them to logs on. I've got one in my outbox from 21 Nov 2006 because the intended recipient has not logged on since before I sent it.

Why are there so many people on the member list that don't have any posts? I mean, there are some people from 2002 that still haven't posted yet. Why haven't they been removed? Also, I've seen quite a few new people pop up lately that haven't posted yet, but who have names that look suspiciously like spammers, such as valiuminformations, Horoscopeday, livecamfreee, weightloss, and (my favorite) bootyrump. I'm not complaining, just curious.

Yeah. I mentioned to Mikey about a year ago (smiley) that I wanted to use the name Calvin, but somebody already had it from 2002, would he mind deleting that and changing my name to Calvin? The orignal Calvin has never posted.

The original Mudshark from 2002 also has never posted. Hence I have to spell my name with 2 Ms!

muddshark would have been a good one, dunno if that was taken or not..


also, very strange how a lot of regulars (including me) had their original username deleted with the forum revamp, but lots of people who have never even posted from 2002/3/4 are still intact. just bad luck?
