Gonna go ahead and test this... WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! HELLO AGAIN RETURNING MEMBERS! Take some time to introduce yourselves. If you're just coming back, let us know who you used to be!
This has been bothering me for a while. Before BZP was connected with other social-media websites like Facebook, I tried to make an account quite a few times. Everything went fluently up to the part where you get an email for confirmation by means of a code or something like that. I never got it. I was sure my email address was spelled correctly and I still tried a few more times, just in case. Does anyone recognize this problem? I wonder what could have happened. Am I missing something?
If you check out the BZPower Rules & Guidelines you may notice a small change in the New Member Policy.Instead of requiring ten posts to get moved from the New Members group to the Members group, we now require five posts to get the bump.There are several reasons for this: No one has abused the system in recent history.The few spambots that have made it onto BZP have been found well before they reached ten or even five posts.This allows new people joining to site to get the full benefits of membership (such as using the PM system) faster.It makes for less work for the staff in approving postsAs a final note - to those New Members who have already made five posts but not ten, you will likely have to make one more post before you get get bumped into the Members group. Sorry for the inconvenience.If you have any questions or comments you can post them here.
