Important Note to New Members: First 2 posts need approval

Post by teamster1975 » Thu Dec 04, 2008 9:45 pm

The board has in the last couple of months been inundated with SPAM and as a result Nick the owner has appointed new Mods to tackle this.
In addition any new member must have their first two posts approved and will not be able to send PM's during this time; after this you can post freely. :)

That'll be the one that Matt approved at 3:16 then :D

It's a manual system that's unfortunately necessary to keep the tossers, sorry spammers, at bay. Posts get approved as soon as one of the mods comes on and checks them. We usually all check in a few times a day so it's rarely more than a couple of hours :oops:

I'm just glad there's no stats on how often we pull up the newposts search :oops:
<steve_earwig> I think this forum is more about keeping our cars going with minimal outlay than giving our cars more reason to go bang

Hi there. Not really the place to introduce yourself but I don't suppose it matters.

Sorry your car blew up, what happened? Hope your wife didn't bend your ear too much...

Hi there
Have been looking at joining for a while,hope i am doing this right? I have been after a boot spoiler for a 2000 MY saloon for a while and when i saw the conversation between Gary406 and wilko i was going to ask wilko if Gary406 was not interested in his boot spoiler i probably would be, didnt know the correct way of going about it.
Thanks
