We use this system as it's the only 100% spam free method.

A couple of years ago the spam levels got so bad that it was taking 5 of us several hours a day each to clear the spam accounts.

Since removing self registration, we have not had a single spam post.

This system works, and isn't it much nicer dealing with an actual human being.  whistle

This does mean that you have to wait untill I check my emails before I can create your account.
So if you haven't had a reply to your account request within 20 nano seconds - just wait a bit longer. I try and check several times a day.

The worst day to ask for a request is usually saturday - that's my tech free day Smiley
But I will usually sign you up sunday morning.

I figure an update to this post is in order since Curious Aardvark's original post is approaching the 10 year mark.  CA isn't with us anymore, but all his words are still accurate regarding the sign-up process.  All accounts are manually created to prevent spam accounts.  If you want an account, just send an email to info@slinging.org with your desired username and I'll get you set up.  Usually you will have your account within 24 hours of sending the email.  If life is really busy for me, it might be an extra day or so.  That doesn't happen too often though.

So to all our prospective members out there, I look forward to hearing about your slinging ideas and experiences!

Cheers everyone!  Smiley
