On October 1, we had roughly 20 new members register from 0900 to 1300. Around 1400, the porn spam posts started. I deleted all new members and their posts.
Effective immediately, the new registration process is this. Fill out the registration form. Submit it. When you get the validation email, follow the link and then validate your registration. This will then notify me that you have successfully validated your account. I will review it and then enable it. Please note that this can take a few days.
If your user name looks funny, you will need to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and explain why it is legitimate. For example, if your user name is "email@example.com," you are going to be deleted.
If your user name is "sexxystew",and you send an e-mail proving that you have connections to the flight attendant community (not necessarily Delta/NWA) you will be approved.
If you keep getting deleted, email us and we will process it (unless of course you want to post porn/spam).
These additoional steps are to prevent us from getting a bunch of porn/spam posts while I am on a trip. When we build up enough moderators, we will move back to the automatic validation procedure.
Sorry for any inconvenience,

We recently upgraded Deltafa.org Talk to newer version of the IP Board software. With the upgrade, you are able to register and be approved without administrator action. This should speed up the registration process.
