New member registration / administration

Hey guys, is any one else hearing about new members having troubles registering? Hopefully a administration person will see this and help out. The person is Keith Woodson and he registered but still can't post a thread or anything. He's not a paying member so I don't know if that's the trouble or not . Thanks for the help.

Perhaps he's trying to post in the part section. Have him try posting in the welcome or general area, he can drop in and say hi and show us pictures of his truck.

Re: New member registration / administration

I referred a fellow from Alabama here the other day and he told me he couldn't get registered either. I'm not sure if he has tried since.

So for anyone interested in joining, what should they do? Another person asked on FB today. I think people realize that traditional forums are better for discussion on technical topics.

Re: New member registration / administration

I may need help figuring out what I’m doing wrong. I am registered under R&B51. Tried to post some questions this weekend and can’t find them popping up. Tried it three or four times.
Trying to post the question in the 47 to 54 forum. Just hit “new thread” put in a title line, put in a question and hit “submit” but isn’t showing up on the site.
Maybe you can help me?

Re: New member registration / administration

i see it is still off, my brother wanted to register but he gets all confused on things like this (he can hardly use a smart phone).

I assume registration is completely off because of Spambots with this old VB software - which has more holes for these bots than the Titanic!

Re: New member registration / administration

I had a friend that asked me to check with Admin, because he was having the same troubles, but this was almost a year ago now. I think he just gave up, and so did I. I had sent a message with the concerns about his problems because he couldn’t even get back on the forum, but I never back from anyone.

Re: New member registration / administration

I am pretty sure the Forum Admin (Josh) that handles the VB Forum software (perhaps the Web Server as a whole?) is in a rough spot with this old VB version (there is no easy fix). This site isn't his day job either. Keeping registration's disabled or requiring Admin approval is generally because of Spambot / Bad Actors from getting in. I was once a VB Forum admin and disabling registration wasn't Plan A.

Now to me, it seems some type of registration limitation has been in place since I came into the forums. Which I have an official join date of June 2020, I started trying to register in Feb/April 2020 when I got my 72 C10. For months all I wanted to do is ask questions! For ages I read thread after thread of forum admins / mods replies trying to gleam a email address. I finally found Josh's in May of 2020 and that took a month before he had the time (or will) to handle my request. But at least he replied and got me in - that was a super happy day for me :-)

I feel for the admins and I can only image how many people move on because they hit a wall and don't know what to do.

Now for some constructive criticism: There should be a "Registration Status" Sticky that gives the current state of registering at the forums (that is kept current). If there isn't a normal path to register, then how to get processed, if possible.

Re: New member registration / administration

If nothing else, you seem to think you know more than we do. I applaud your willingness to direct the site, perhaps you should join the staff.

I love constructive criticism myself. Thanks
