Trikepilot Social is going to "Admin Approval Required" to join

Published by: Spencer Forman on 31st May 2010 | View all blogs by Spencer Forman
Well, I never thought I'd have to do this... but I'm turning on the "admin approval required" to join option on Trikepilot Social. Why? Mainly because there is a group of scammers and spammers that basically cause me to have to spend more time "deleting" them on this current platform we use, than it would take to "deny" them from ever getting an account.

We are in the process of getting our new (third time the charm?) home ready for you on our new platform, where this will not be required. But in the meantime, it's simply too much clicking around for me to "fix" what they do, than it would be to stop it from happening.

This is probably of no relevance to any of you existing members, other than to say... you will no longer be receving messages asking you if you want a new girlfriend... sorry ;-(

Safe Flying!
Spence

    Approval required is fine - especially if it makes site admin easier.

    Good move Spence!
    it's better to keep you're "burnout threshold" low and ask for the patience of new subscribers!
    It's preferable to keep this great social resource about aviation, and trike related issues.
    One of your biggest "fans"!
