Group DIY site??
I have seen some of you guys are members of GroupDIY as well....
I have tried to register on this site with ZERO success.

Is there some secret?? I can't seem to get an administrator reply.

I would really like to be a member on that forum. Can anyone offer any help?

I'm not even sure if this is kosher or not, Mods, feel free to delete if it's not cool...

It has to do with massive problems about bots signing up to spam the board.

The only way to get activated is by emailing Ethan, the admin of that domain.

Direct requests for activation goes here:

Prodigy Professional :: View topic - Please activate account

(but requires knowledge of the user name in question)

I saw Ethan activated a few accounts, but not mine. I get the feeling he doesn't like me!

I also think maybe I signed up too long ago, so I tried again with a different username, because it wouldn't let me use the same one.

Can anyone get "FruitBat" activated, Please!??

sorry for the daft names, I'm not feeling very creative mezed

Looks like I'm like a full-time lurker on GroupDIY now thumbsup

DeeDrive 21st October 2008 05:04 PM

Hey I've been trying to sign up here forever too, can someone ask for DeeDrive to be activated? Thanks a bunch guys.

bino_5150 21st October 2008 05:35 PM

lol well, I guess that's the best way to weed out the spam bots, right?

"Thank you for registering with Group DIY. Now go over to Gearslutz, register there, and post in the thread asking someone to help you get activated. That way we know you aren't selling viagra. Thanks."

A lot more efficient than the "Captcha" images, you think? lmao

DJBlueDrink 23rd October 2008 05:07 AM

Hey guys, I tried to register under the name of NeckbeardTheHipsterPirate. I promise I'm not selling viagra. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks a million.
