Someone needs to...

Postby CalebP » Fri Jan 21, 2011 12:37 am

Someone needs to address the issue with registering to be a user on the forum. I reg'd about a year ago and I had to go through and find the email one of the admins and had to email them 4 or 5 times to get through. They had to approve my account which I had sent a month ago.

Granted it shouldnt be an 100% open forum, but havent to email some clandestine user to join shouldnt be an issue. I have sent messages to the main admins of the forum about adding moderators and administrators and I was told they'd look into it. I checked back 3 times with no response. Ive already volunteered to do so.

Also when there are 80 views to a post in 2 days on a league forum with no responses.... that seems like they might not be able to register, but are still using the forum. Thoughts?

MDR and Balk (if hes still around?) aren't running this site to make money. It is for Iowa and surrounding area's golfers' benefits. Chillax, youll be fine...

Right. Which is why I volunteered to help.

Ive had fellow golfers say that they cant get there account activated and cant find the email or by that time cant remember there username

edit: Theres definetly people willing to help and put in time. Im just saying does Iowa want a cobwebbed half assed site or a real legit site? This cant be an open/active forum when its difficult to become a user.

IMO we are very lucky to have a site like this. If it takes an email or 2, or 3 to get registered, so be it.

Which brings up another good point... I would be in for putting in money to support the site...like 10.00-20.00 a year. I use a few other forums and one of them actually has a monthly paypal deduction and I think they have an average of 80.00 a month donated.

There is a post stickied in "Stuff" to tell you what to do if you need help with your account. I know it's hard to manually enter in an email address, but I don't use the email address that's attached to the site that often.

Caleb, if you want me to give you admin privs and forward all the requests to your email..I'll do it. Send me a PM with an email addy you want me to use. Let me know when it becomes too much.

And while you're in there, there's about 37,000 spam users...if you wouldn't mind deleting them while you're at it.

Hey mike with all the hits this thing gets per day, have you thought of placing a little more time into the google ads and letting everyone know the rules and how it actually works? You could easily make a Iowadg.com bonus at tournaments and work days as long as people weren't retards.
