READ ME for Newly registered members!

Unread post by SilverFox »

Upon registration approval, all new members are automatically assigned to the "Newly Registered User" group. This group provides new users with most forum features, but not all. In particular, Private Messaging and registered member email options are NOT active for anyone in this group. Newly Registered Users automatically move to the Registered User group after 10 legitimate posts.

I enabled this function shortly after acquiring the forum and dealing with a heavy spam attack. Since I personally approve every single user registration, this has reduced problem registrations nearly to zero.

The only way to move out of the Newly Registered User group prior to 10 legitimate posts is by clicking DONATE and donating at least $10. This will get any new member moved into the current year Supporting Member group with full forum features AND I'll send you a pair of Hewescraft Owner's Forum stickers if you donate $15 or more. 8-)

Okay maybe I'm dense, but I couldn't locate the donate button, I'm using an iPad would that make a difference?

Hey SilverFox- I had a quick turnaround before coming back to work, but wanted to let you know the decals came in and I can't wait to slap them on the ride. Thanks!
