Maybe I missed a post, but does anyone know if we are having problems with people signing up for the website? We used to get about a dozen newbies a day, and now get about one a month….was wondering if there is a site sign up problem.

Martin has temporarily stopped new accounts for the time being. He did so to control some of the junk that was getting on here. I’m sure he will reopen the site soon.

Thanks GMan…I can log on and use the site ok, but I noticed that not many new members are signing up so I was wondering if there was a problem that new members cant sign up. It sounds like Martin has it restricted right now for new sign ups.

I had heard that there were a couple of guys dumped off for bad stuff they were saying or doing on the site that offended people. Then the re signed on under different names and began to post porn on the forums or blogs. Then new membership was halted and I don’t know if it is turned on yet. I saw the counter at 22,641 for a lot of days. I see the coffee shop is not back yet.
I guess the way to do that is for a new member to sign on, he/she would need sponsoring by an existing member to verfy the person was an OK woodworker. Otherwise, how would you know if those kooks are still not trying to gain access.

I think Martin is or was having an approval process to stop the pron posters from coming back again & again with new Ids.

Whatever Martin did it sure has made a difference. He’s definately on top of things.

Does anyone know if the “banners in the way of the project images” is temporary? I click on a project and the damn banner is in the way of the image. I’m all for a premium ” web site” to weed out less than desirables and riff-raff. And banner ads.

wayne if you didn´t saw what happen then bee glad it was what Jim Jakosh say
not nice and there unfortunaly some children that saw it too
and becourse of all this there was a lot of very good woodworkers and fine people who had left for good
so if there is people you can´t find you know why now
and the sign in has been stopped since and so is the coffelaunge becourse people cuoldn´t behave
and moderate langauge and personly attack each other

don´t shoot the messenger :-)

Thanks Dennis. Yes, I saw what was going on. I knew Martin had closed the coffee lounge forum for that reason, but I hadnt realized the new sign ups had been stopped too. Just hadnt seen many new members in quite a while so was wondering what was up. I thought maybe there was a problem with the website.

sign ups under different names and just spread the porn all over in the mittle of other comments on the
projects as well
