    I'll bring the ear plugs. Sounds like it is going to get noisy.

    Is there any way to develop a holding tank for new profiles? That would give the mods a chance to look them over before the trolls start stinking up the place.

    Automatically placing all new registrations on Moderation is one idea. It may have been tried and found to be too much work to hold up every newbie if only a minority are not quickly compliant. I've PM'd Admin to inquire about it.

    I'm going to close this thread until the 8th to not attract pre-trial discussion. Thanks.

    Why the ceremony of this thread, you might ask. Well, I didn’t want to make individual threads like usual. I figured the sudden volume of them might cause undue concern so I wanted to explain here to maybe pre-empt that. Plus, I hope to make visible my ethics around this.

    Our Intro is a requirement, not optional, and many new members provide one without prompting. In fact, a personalized invitation or prompt from a Moderator is not a prerequisite to perform the Intro requirement. As has been pointed out, for some men reliving their experiences for an Intro can be difficult or painful. Yet, they get 'er done. Certainly it is fair to these members who are in compliance including the ones who have done the hard thing by pushing themselves to write the Intro that we not permit others to slide by.

    Some member usernames do not come up in a Search for them as author of an Intro thread in the New Member Intros sub-forum. I have sent a PM and VM to each member on this list (with automatic email notification to all but one) on at least two occasions and none have responded to my attention. Others who have responded are not on this list at this time. Some on this list may have already quit visiting long ago. Some may either misunderstand our website or don't care enough. Any one may not belong here and making an Intro would show this.

    I know the word "ban" has a controversial connotation and to me it's regrettable that the vbulletin website package places the word "banned" under every username regardless of actual disposition. I'm closing these accounts without malice and I call upon the best of us to understand this.

    Accounts have been closed for the following usernames for not meeting the Intro requirement:

    Pilgrim - zero posts
    Icebite - zero posts
    Iceklimber
    ket222 - zero posts
    burst appendix
    Richie - zero posts
    LuckyMGTOW - zero posts
    Jessup
    FJROB - zero posts
    Tricknology - zero posts
    MW1030 - zero posts
    deepdian - zero posts
    Talbot
    GYOW2019 - in response to Mod PM, identified as female


    I'll leave this thread open for now, why not, but these closures are final.

    If you see yourself on this list, you should understand why.

    Persons can still view the site as non-members, of course.

    Thank you,

    Unboxxed

    I thought about some way of sequestering new members, but couldn't put it into words.

    Of course, any of us who don't actually do the work of moderating can come up with all sorts of great ideas, because we don't do the work.
    That's in no way a slant in any way to you, Boar, I actually had the same idea.
