As a fairly primitive way to deter spam, users of the group "Members" cannot post new topics. You should automatically update to "Mjolnir Mark IV Cyborg" after posting once, but it doesn't seem to have worked retroactively, so you'll need to make a post somewhere else. If you need to, you can post some worthless comment in here and be automatically updated.

Having trouble with the system? Let me know.

By making their own topic... which they can no longer do with their first post.

I've got it! We make a big long topic in the welcome second called "Introduce yourself" That was new members can make a post to introduce themselves. Only 1 spammer so far has made a reply of spam. All the rest have been topic makers.

Yeah, I figured that might work, but I don't think it's really that important.

Harrah, one success story so far, though it is cool to introduce yourself on your first topic.

No you won't. And then they'll start spamming your email.

That's the advantage of having spam-blocker. Also I'll just ignore them with the ease you ignored me on the metaserver.


I will if you let me.

Well, I won't let you, because they make new emails with every account, and it's patently stupid anyway.

While I would defend hawkeyefile's post by saying that he probably posted that here so he could make topics, it is hawkeyefile (a precursor to OTE :P), so I'll have to agree with you.
