I've thought about this a lot. The only problem is that it's slow enough as it is around here and I'm not sure that would help much. I do look at every profile when I get a chance and try to determine if they belong or not. I just sent out about 5 or 6 PM's last night to people telling them to put more or more serious info in their profiles.

Sometimes I'll get a new member that has an anonymous user name with no info, but when I look at their email address, I see it's a photographer with top notch work. Either the domain name of the address is their site, or I google the name with whatever hints there are to be had.

Hey Brooks,

Would it be too much work for you to approve/disapprove new members? Not sure how often we get new members but it would be great if a website or something was required.


I disagree, this place is quiet enough without making it a private club. I would like to see things more active here. And while the guy FUH Q a.k.a. Shogun Assassin livened up the forum for a day or two with his total douchiness he also had a couple legit posts. I think the mods and the members can deal with most goofballs who pop up.

Fair enough. Thought I'd just throw it out there.

So it was one guy using two names...I guess he figured he could say more nasty stuff that way. Maybe not requiring a website, since I've seen some very talented amateurs, but some way of checking might help.

I got called a douche on another forum the other day. I wouldn't have it any other way. If I'm not offending someone somewhere, I'm being too passive and uninteresting.

That's real mature.
