Almost every day, it seems like on the bottom of the Long Patrol Forum's home page, there is a different newest member. I was looking through the member's list, and they weren't listed. What's the deal?

I've noticed all our new members too, which is why I'd like to invite the following new members to actually make a post:

"cad93" "KayJea abcdefg" "William Wallace" "Denjer_the_otter" and
"Dwullow McLeafpad"

Welcome to the Long Patrol.

Their who I was talking about. They don't even show up on the member's list, and I remember when I would click on their profiles when they showed up as the newest member, it said I didn't have the right priveliges.

I think that's because they haven't even validated their accounts.

I seem to recall that in order to activate your account you had to click the link provided in the email you received. Could they be members who haven't activated their accounts via the email? Or do members not show up until they've completed the registration process?

if i remember correctly, you press the link and you get another message that leads you to the website. i can probably raid my email account...

...actually no, you get a welcome and that means you can go to the website and log on

this was my last message
shadowmoon,

It would be impossible for several of the people TBT listed to post on this forum. There are several reasons why people don't show up on the members list.

Click Here! (http://forums.longpatrolclub.com/member.php?find=lastposter&t=1276)
If that doesn't work, do an advanced search. Leave all fields blank except the "find posts by user" one, and type in "Denjer_the_otter" Then click on the "last post by "Denjer_the_otter" button.

Plus, he's listed.

No they forgot about this site and because of that their brains blew up because they couldn't live knowing that they passed by a great chance at being a member of one of the best redwall sites ever ;)

They no longer have the capacity to.
Ergo, they got B& for something they did in, like, their first couple posts.

Or else their whole area got banned by a single IP ban or something, but I somehow doubt it!

Err... Or me or Ringothewarrior (I think he left because the RPG of Redwall fell through) and several others. *Erases staisfy your need for spamming thread*

hey ringmaster? didnt ringo officially leave the forum te day i joined or was that someone else?

Rolinko
April 7th, 2005, 10:31 PM
Yeah, that was him. I remember saying something like "Alas poor Ringo, I knew him not so well."

Jodan
April 7th, 2005, 11:06 PM
I though Ringo was obnoxious. He couldn't take criticism at all, and threw a hissyfit when I said something he didn't like. Instead of dealing with it, he just ran away scared. I'm glad he's gone, if he's just going to be like that.

Not like anyone here has ever done that. :rolleyes:

Is it so hard to follow the golden rule? If you don't have anything nice to say, keep it to yourself. Don't talk about people behind their back.

Your opinion is wrong then. Timesplitters better than Halo 2? *shakes head* I really don't know what to say. I reccomend you go to a neuroscientest, and ask him what is causing the obvious misfiring of neurons in your brain. Something has to be wrong, for you not to like Halo 2.


Not like anyone here has ever done that. :rolleyes:

I think The Red Badger may be on to something. :rolleyes: :lol:

Halo 2 tanscends the ability to be criticized, and as a loyal acolyte of Halo 2, I'm merely trying to show you the light.

You're not that loyal if you complain about sniper rifles and energy swords.

Tiptoeing back to the main topic...

Why is it that names of new members show up in the Welcome to our newest member box, but not on the member list until they answer their confirmation email or whatever?

Cheesethief
April 9th, 2005, 12:58 PM
Because they are technically a member, but the system requires them to activate their account in order for them to become fully-fledged Dibbuns.

Jodan

Ah, young Rollo. Trying to goad me once again, I see. Well, I'm trying to be a bit more mature these days, on this forum as well as in life, so I won't take the bait. Everyone who's read the Snipers topic knows my feelings on the energy sword and sniper rifles, and if they haven't you just reiterated them for everyone. I stand by what I said, and your vain attempts at taunting me will not sway my opinion. If it gets you your kicks to try, then more power to you.

I find it odd that there is a high banning rate of new members. I mean, it seems high compared to when I first joined. If they had used the same standards of modding back then my post count would have ended in the 40s. :lol: It seems a little harsher now I geuss.

The Red Badger
April 16th, 2005, 09:48 PM
Same standard is still in place. . . and you came awfully close. :p But so have a lot of people.

There's not a higher banning rate. In fact, I'm fairly sure there's only been two in the past few months. And while some may have thought otherwise, we didn't do anything to Sebastion's account. That was more or less an argument on the theoretical.

A lot of people register accounts solely to post links to inappropriate sites. Those are the ones that get zapped from the get-go.

Just in the interest of accuracy. :cool:

I thought I was gonna get banned when I put html code in my sig to flip the text around, but it flipped the whole web page around wherever I posted! (I did change it as soon as I realized it, though.) The power of signatures... :redsy

We're naturally distrustful of nice people. . . they're always up to something. . . so you were actually closest of all! Don't get cocky, missie, with all your "Hi"s and "Can't we get along"s. . . we're wise to your game! :redsy
