Default New Member Restrictions

Please note, because of spammers and the fact that they occasionally get through our registration process (as proven today), new posters to the site are not able to use the PM feature, or add a signature. A vulnerability was shown today in that new posters were allowed to use Casebook's email to send out email (if each individual poster allowed it). Our spammer today exploited that feature and sent out several emails before he was shut down. New posters will now likewise not be able to use the Casebooks own email feature. We apologize for the inconvenience however, we can't guarantee a spammer will never get through and the best way to make sure they can't do significant damage before they are caught is to make sure that new members have a genuine interest before they can access certain features. We hope you understand.

Default hello

I have just registered. I have only made one post so far. I have noticed there is another feature either restricted or that is broken? I cannot access the chatroom at the moment. I am happy if this is a restriction but just wish this confirmed so I can stop worrying I have broken something.

Cheers.

Default ok thanks

do the restrictions lift when a certain number of posts have been reached? Or is it time on the site that counts? Sorry to be a bother.

Daisy,

Here's a crazy thought. Did you actually read the A6 restriction thread that tells you exactly what you ought to do if you are a new member and can't access PMs? I mean, I know it's a radical thought but rather than spamming the forums with repeated posts asking a question that is clearly answered on the very forum you wish to post on why don't you check the thread and follow the directions that are already there... it seems the logical choice.

After post 25 your PM account is automatically activated and there are no more restrictions. In the very off case that not, try emailing admin.
