As some of you have no doubt noticed, account registration now requires Admin approval. This is not because we don't love you, but rather because there has been a marked increase in spambot account registration over the last several months. We are just being cautious and trying provide our posters with a spam-free posting environment!
Thus, if you have a friend trying to register who hasn't been approved, be patient (we try to sift through approvals as fast as we can) or just hit me or the Admin link with a PM and let us know your friend's username so we don't delete them thinking they're a bot!
Thanks for your patience and for helping make the SOD/SOW forums a fun, active place to hang out!
