Tips when registering for your forum account

Post by GHQ »

Welcome to the world of GHQ. First, thank you for your interest in becoming a registered member of our forum. This forum is a fantastic resource for information on military gaming, history, modeling, etc., and it would not be possible without valuable members like you. To cut down the number of spammers on our forum, we frequently do a cull on accounts. To avoid having your account culled keep these things in mind:

- Early on put up some legitimate posts that others may find interesting. These could be projects that you are working on, comments on games that you have played, interesting military history tidbits that you just learned, questions about military history/game rules/TO&E's/etc. that others may know about.

- DO NOT put anything about por-nography, drugs, phar-maceuticals, online gambling sites, s-e-xual products, etc. anywhere in your profile.

- Be sure to list that military history, modeling, gaming, etc. is one of your interests, or hobbies.

-DO NOT list a commercial website in your profile.

Because this forum is paid for and maintained by GHQ, we ask that you do not include any website addresses for other companies in your postings. We try to keep a very friendly and informative atmosphere on our forum, so please refrain from using profanity and any name calling. When in doubt about placing a post, take 15 minutes to think about it, before hitting the "Submit" button. All posts are subject to being edited or deleted by any of our forum moderators. This forum has got a lot of very informed regular users, and offers a wealth of information. It is a fantastic tool for people who are just getting into military gaming and modeling, as well as those who have been active in the hobby for decades. Use it, have fun with it, and be an active member on it!

Thank you for your support,
GHQ

We are happy to have had our forum be relatively trouble-free for so many years. For quite awhile we were able to remain relatively SPAM free, and have had a relatively colloquial exchange of ideas, questions, comments, etc. A few months ago a couple of things popped up that have made us take a tighter approach to our forum. One is that SPAM started to pop up regularly. Over the last several weeks we have been in conversations with our website developer, and have asked that the controls be tightened for registering new accounts. In addition, we regularly go through and delete new accounts that appear to be bogus. One of the best ways to show that you have registered a legitimate account is to immediately post something that others will find interesting, and want to offer words of encouragement, praise, suggestions, etc.. Our forum is full of incredibly knowledgeable, talented people who are very generous with sharing what they know, and we know that many of you have have been reading our forum have got some great things to say. Register your account, and get in on the fun!

We have a few ideas for expanding the viewership, and hopefully registered members, of our forum, and over the next couple of months we will begin putting some of them into play. It would be great to get some new members in on the action. If you have any ideas about how to get more people tuned in, please let us know. Spread the word to people who you know who may be interested, talk about our forum in some groups that you are a member of, please help get the word out. There are so many talented, and knowledgeable, people here, we know that many more people would love to see what is going on here!

Thank you for your support,
