Hi Sam

I did notice one thing tonight

I changed my email address in my profile

i didnt get the standard authorization

I got an email from simon saying my account had been closed and he had opened it again

my account was then authorized

Hi Davy,

We have had a notification tonight, that your account has been 'deactivated'.  Have you made any alterations to your profile this evening?  Assuming this is some kind of error, I have re-activated your account, but if you do want it closed, please let me know.

Best Wishes,

Simon.

I think this is due to us having to monitor new accounts, because of an overwhelming amount of spammers trying to sign up to promote their websites (without success, I might add!).  The change of email was probably enough to activate the alert to Admins, and as a security measure, also to deactivate the account, until it was re-approved by an Admin.  

If any members have a similar problem, please email an Admin, and we will sort it out for you.
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

On my forum the fellow that does our mod work installed a mod called the humanizer. Its actually pretty handy in keeping the bots out. If you haven't already installed it heres the link.
