Hello. This is your friendly neighborhood Admin guy letting you know of some changes I've made to the forums. These changes were made as an effort to reduce the amount of spam posts that have been made recently.
Starting now, new users will have to pass a CAPTCHA challenge on their first few posts.
Also, your first few posts will not show up right away. They will be sent to a queue until one of our Moderators can check them out for approval.
Once we figure out you're a legitimate user, and not a degenerate spammer, you will be added to the regular Users group, and will no longer have to pass CAPTCHA or the moderation queue.
Thank you for your time, and welcome aboard!
In my walk in the martial way, my hope is that as long as I live, I will always be a beginner.
