Screening New Members

Recommended Posts

just some thoughts and we may have missed the boat on this but to cut down on undesirables having access to the site it my be better to only allow invited people as new members.

A clean out of old accounts may help start this off. Im a member of several other sites in th USA where this is done and unless your a member you have no idea whats on their site until you are invited to join.

It is a bit rediculess that we must be guarded on our own site and as long as it is a free to the public to join site then we must.

Ive been a poud hunter for 40 yrs. my hunting has always doubled as feral animal control and Ill never be ashamed of it. no matter how hard the bunny huggers try. It discuss me that we can not talk freely about our hunting but this doesnt mean Im going to add fuel to their fire.

So closing the site to the public and vetting new members may go some way to doing this.

good idea..

just no time to administer it..

It is probably time for another clean out - May do it so every member that has not posted 5 times at least gets deleted..

I havnt got the time for a vouch system.. People will always find OD when they use google. So no real easy way around it..

I agree with Steve on this. Some sites you need to be vouched for by 2 current members.

Dont get me wrong Its not the fare dinkum hunter anyone would want to keep out. and the growth of the site would have been much slower. but its not the hunter that is driving the game closer and closer to its end. Though the popularity of hunting these days is one factor.

Unforunatly I can't think of another way to check the creds. of potental members or those that lerking in the back ground not contributing. Because its one thing to be a proud hunter and another altogether to feed the bunny huggers in their atempt to suck the blood out off life as we know it.

Thats a fair way to do better than the Vouching system

you could on say 10post Rip, and log on time aswell ppl that havent been on in several months get deleted aswell

IMO do people that haven't posted in several months. People might come on and be gathering photos to go against us.
