Registration is moderated.
What that means is that the staff reviews your pending registration and either approves or disapproves it.
In times past, we've left registration open for all. During that period, there were many troll attacks on the board. Because of that, it has been necessary to moderate registration requests. You need to provide a REAL (ISP-based) email address
. Anonymous domains such as Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail and others are not allowed
. Rest assured that your email address will remain entirely private unless YOU decide to make it public. TB2K is an entirely private organization, and we do not, under any circumstances, provide member information to third parties.
Note that we will not register you with a board name that is profane, uses special characters, is emotionally-charged, or extremely religious or political in nature. In addition, each member is allowed a SINGLE identity. If you are registered under more than one board name and we discover it, your membership will be immediately revoked. Please read the thread: Things you need to know as a new member
and the forum rules: TB2K Posting Guidelines.
NOTE: If your ISP, PC email client software, or web-based email client has a SPAM filter, you must set it to allow email from the "Timebomb2000.com" email domain. Otherwise, emails sent to you will simply be discarded before you ever see them. In that event, you'll never get the confirmation email that contains the URL you need to click on in order to finalize your registration.
One more thing: It is necessary for you to post *at least once
* within the first 15 days of your registration in order to keep your account active. If you don't want to post on a "real" thread, you can post in the TEST FORUM.
