how does this work?

Added by Wil van Antwerpen over 7 years ago

As I'm not familiar with this particular forum software, testing how to post?

Can I post anonymously? How-to setup an account etcetera...

Well from what I can see now, you will have to register a new account with this part of the site and then that account has to be approved by an admin of the projects site (yes sorry about that, it is something to do with our love for spam, we might have to revisit that decision)

So you cannot post here unless you got an account, thereby rendering this part a bit less useful.
Will ponder a bit about it.

Yes, this section is read only unless you logged in with a valid account. Same as most forums.

Correct, but on most forums you can just sign up and get access instantly.
For the moment however I personally prefer the extra overhead of people having to be approved (for which I apologize) over the extra work on having to clean up on spam.

Re. anybody reading this and wondering if submitting for an account is picky for getting approval?
If you have ever posted at the Data Access Worldwide forums, you'll be getting an approval on an account request at this VDF-Guidance project server.

But if I do not recognize your name then I will ask you a really simple question everybody from our community can answer to weed out the spammers.

PS: you can delete this if you want... LOL.
