Members Names
« on: November 17, 2008, 10:42:08 AM »

In the last few weeks there has been an influx of applications for membership at AdventTalk, with prospective names that are essentially gibberish.

The Admin team have decided that any name that appears to be a meaningless collection of letters will not be permitted.

Such applications will be deleted without response or explanation.

If you have any particular reason for choosing such a user name, you are free to discuss its use with the Admin team.

If anyone wishes to discuss this topic please go to the General Discussions Forum where it is also posted.

Now we usually check for known spammers which are deleted, even if they use common names.

At the moment most applicants are rejected for two reasons:

1. The name they use has no meaning in the English language

2. They are known spammers.

Please do not apply for membership if those rules apply to you.
