We do not allow 3rd party mailhosts (ie: hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc.).
You must use your actual E-mail address from your ISP.

Weird. I registred with my hotmail. ^^;;
Maybe that was before the rule, If you want me to re-register with a real e-mail or something like that, BT, please let me know. Mr Green

Yes, you and many others did. That is why we installed the enhanced ban modification that allows us to ban 3rd party mail sites. The whole idea is to remove or reduce the ability of people to create multiple accounts.

ISP Emails?

Correct me if I am wrong, but is that throughoutly possible? I never heard of such things.

... nor have I. What the hell are they? Well, if you'd had this system 'back in the day' when I registered, I wouldn't be here now. Isn't that a little like the proverbial "sledgehammer to crack a nut"? Sounds almost like you don't want people to join the elite club of Wolfenstein fans AND people who know how to use their ISP email address... thing... but then I don't really know what I'm talking about... oh well, confused now... Think *wanders away*

EDIT: After going and trying to set up a second account for one of my friends (well... he didn't know about it) I have decided this security idea is, like... dumb. Sorry BrotherTank, but you're probably turning people away.

I promise to you I would never make multiple accounts for a single forum. I heavily promise you that.

ISP emails I think would be like verizon.net, optonline.net, msn.com, aol.com, etc?
Sorta strange, especially for people who only have maybe a hotmail email or yahoo. I was even thinking about switching my current email to my gmail one for less mess.

ISP email address are those given by your ISP, such as @aol.com. I think AOL lets you create up to 5 addresses. Most people don't use them. I don't because I've changed ISPs and I like to maintain an email account instead of change it every few years. It does seem that since a lot of ISPs give you multiple email accounts, this module kind of seems a bit much. But then again, maybe it stops a lot of fake spam accounts from being created.

In the end, it's up to BrotherTank. I have no idea the amount of junk or fake signups he has to sift through to find the real ones. If someone has a problem and wants to join, they'll ask what's up as "Guest" has done here.

I used a Gmail one to get registered, and that was just about a month ago. I do have an ISP one if'n you want me to change it to comply to your policy. It's up to you.

I guess many of you missed the point.... The first post is from a guest trying to log into the system as a new user. They wanted to know why they could not register as it was banning the e-mail address they were supplying. I answered the question with the most direct and current information. We do not allow 3rd party e-mails for new registrations any more.

I did not say that everyone else will have to correct their information. It was never meant as a scare tatic or anything of the like. I installed the software because we were constantly getting new users claiming to be from hotmail and yahoo and the accounts never existed. And when they did find one that worked, then they would log in and give their "www" address to be from a porn site. Again.... You guys don't need to be told the in's and out's of why we do these things, but most of it is for your protection. If someone is going to gain access to these forums, from the point the software was installed (the new banning system), then they will have to use the e-mail address given to them from their ISP.

For those that don't understand that... Any NEW users will be required to use the e-mail address assigned to them, or one from their choosing, when they signed up with their ISP for internet access. As Adam has stated, aol allows you 5... So does mine...

For those that are already members (VALIDATED) and using the forums... This stuff doesn't concern you unless I set your account to have the e-mail address updated/changed. This will only happen should I start getting bounced e-mails saying the Users Account doesn't exist.

So relax... Stop speculating... and enjoy the forums as you always have. If we (the forums admin) have a problem with your account, you will know about it.
