My first messages are about four weeks old now. I understand the process may take sometime, but this has to be abnormal. Either there are no actual administrators here or something must have gone wrong, though i cannot imagine what.

Is there a way this issue can be resolved?

The process is almost painless.
However, it does involve hair removal, heat treatment, and gravy.

The process needs revamping. I'm no computer expert, so I have no suggestions to make. But, the sign up process is not very welcoming to newcomers in my opinion.

I don't know if it will help, but I'll try to shoot Mikey a PM tonight. I think he just gets on here when he can. I believe it was 2 weeks after my 10th post before I was a full member?

Post in any other forum here except for this one.

I guess there's nothing that can be done but wait at this point. :(

Hi. I'm obviously new around here. I'm a bit confused. Do I have to post ten messages, or to simply post one new thread (which I did)? Anyhow, it was great to break the communication wall for a moment.

From what I remember, it goes something along the lines of...
you must:

- make 10 posts (random order).
- create 5 threads (sky's the limit on the subject matter!).
- make 1 pumpmoticon-only reply.
- ask 3 actual legit aka honest questions (no "what was franks middle name?" craziness).
- get into 1 heated argument with an old school member (check post counts if you are uncertain).
- resolve said argument within 2 working days (quick tip: YOU apologize).
- inquire about the "forces running this board". --> act sincerely concerned.
- (this one may be the tuffie) ignore all speling and grammatical errrors - at least until you reach 250 posts.
- create an avatar, wait! make it a pic of frank zappa. ANY pic of frank zappa. what are you waiting for!!?
- pick a favorite poster. base your opinion on your own opinion.
- ignore ALL private/"in" jokes. treat them as if they are ghosts. invisible and silent ghosts.
- do not keep harping on the "why-can't-i-send-a-private-message!' thing. odds are... you will just be annoying someone.

Some of these may have changed. if so... kindly send Disco Boy (:co moderator/key grip) a private message.

Hope this helps and we will see ya in the big leagues!
