Can't post in Prog or Meg threads...
« on: 19 December, 2013, 09:56:23 am »
Hi guys, just wondering why I can't reply to some of the threads on the board? Is it because I'm a newbie and have to wait to given full membership to the board? If so, how long does it usually take to become a fully fledged member.

I just wanted to post and say how much I enjoyed Prog 2014!

It's because you're clearly underage.

Nah, it's just an anti-spambot-slash-repeat-offender precaution. Kindly mod Richmond Clements will no-doubt notice your plight and elevate you to the Shining City soon.  Drop him a PM to get his attention, or just make a sexist remark.  Err, maybe just the former.

That's how I've ended up here, saw the sexism being talked about on FB.  I figured I needed a piece of that action...  :lol: (not really. Don't boot me!)

Cheers for the heads up anyway, I reckon Richmond will see me sooner or later, so I'll just politely wait here. It'll give me more time to decide which page 3 girl I want as an avatar...

I think that's a really good pre-cautionary measure by the 2000ad board. You should see the amount of spam on other forums *cough* Empire Online *cough*!

I'm always disappointed that he doesn't try to weed out the spambots by asking them a series of questions designed to provoke an emotional response.

Tell me only the good things that come into your mind about Mark Millar.

"Mark Millar? What's that?"

"You know what an arse is?"

"Of course"

"Same thing"

I'm a big fan of Grant Morrison, but Mark Millar is most definitely his worst creation.

Looks like I can't reply to prog threads either. Does everyone have to be individually vetted by admin?
Meh!
