NEW USERS - IMPORTANT PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING

Postby Richard » Fri Mar 23, 2012 5:48 pm

For those wishing to join this group : please use REAL NAME when registering otherwise your request will not be approved. It would also help if you could say a little about yourself, where you are located and what your interest in swords is.

Thanks,
The management etc.

Just a further reminder to people wishing to join the group - please use real name. We have had quite a few applications to join recently with a series of bizzare names.

The site has been under a 'spam attack' recently so anyone wishing to join now has to answer the question 'what is the name of this forum?' The answer is 'Antique Sword Forum'.

Richard,
Are you still enforcing the real name requirement, or is it a case by case thing? Just curious as there are now a few members with aliases.

Thank you,
Jonathan

I am trying ... and I have rejected several applications to join because real names are not used. However, if I actually know someone and they apply using an alias, then its difficult to say no.

So the message to existing members is : if you are using an alias, please adjust your profile to use your real name.

I think this is important as we know that there are dangerous people out there so we do need to know who we are conversing with - I will be stricter in the future

Richard,
I understand and I apologize if I sounded critical. If new members are known to you and choose an alias that is good enough for me!

No, you made a good point and others have mentioned this too. I think its important that we all know who we are talking to.

Just to reiterate once again : new users please use REAL NAMES when applying to join (we have had another series of bizarre user names and these will not be accepted)
