From time to time, we will be scanning the user base for accounts that do not exist. IE: There is a user name here with NO Valid E-mail address.

When these are discovered, they will be removed from the database. Sorry, no exceptions.

I only hope that the next upgrade of phpBB will have an e-mail verification system for new users, and only validate an account rather than me having to dig through "returned e-mails". I deleted one such account today, because of a non-existant e-mail address...

So, in finishing... If you move, relocate, change ISP's, or whatever... Please keep your e-mail address active for your account here at the DHW.

You may go into your profile and hide your e-mail so that others (other than the admins) my not see it... But it must be an active address....

Thankyou.

Should you need to contact myself or MCS about something related to the DHW then please e-mail us at:

diehardwolfers@areyep.com

This e-mail address is for concerns about the board, problems you may have, or errors that you have found, or information your wish to share (ie Pictures and such for the DHW Homepage).

Please Do NOT request help with code and such things as those e-mails will go right to the trashbin. If you need help ask in the appropriate section or sub forum here at the DHW Forums.

Thanks Again...

I understand.

Just curious, but why does a user need to have an active email address?

Lets see...

So we (the Mods/Admins) can send out announcements from time to time, and to help us should someone get way out of line (in this case it helps track down the culprit). There are other reasons too, but those are the two biggest.

When an e-mail addy is bad, it keeps bouncing messages back to the sites e-mail box and gives us yet another thing to look after. Hence, that is why the diehardwolfers@areyep.com was created, so as to help remove some of the load off of Steve and MCS with the e-mails that they get about SOD2 and the new EoD. If we send out a message (which doesn't happen very often (if at all) it's an announcement possibly because of a problem with the board. I'd like to be able to mass mail everyone explaining it before I get the flood of messages saying "There is a problem".

But the best example would be Zetaburn.... And then this new guy Rainstein.... It makes it rather difficult to moderate and send off a messae to them first explaining the problems in behaviour before having to take drastic steps like banning an ISP.

As I said... in your profile properties, there is an option to "Not Show" your e-mail address... Toggle that if you wish, as there are only 3 people that can view it... MCS... Steve... And Myself... And we're not about to give things out and share it with others...

Hope that answers the question a little better...
