What the deal with Hags House? Ive been trying to register for about a week and a half now. There is this admin message that says the site is not accepting any new members or something like that. Does any one know whats going on with that?

They are trying to keep out spammers I think. I've heard a few others mention the same problem. If there is something you are looking for in particular, one of us may be able to help you with it.

I know how they feel. I get approximately 6-8 spammers per day that try to register on this forum. They all go through a CAPTCHA and then get manually reviewed by me. Occasionally one will still sneak through.

Part of the problem with registering at Hag's House besides the spammers is that Chris, who owns and operates Hag's House had to go into the hospital for surgery in January and hence the auto-registration was shut off and is still off while Chris is recovering...

The good news is you can get registered and use Hag's House by using the following instructions.

The following is from one of Chris's deputies as posted on Hag's House:

Chris (212) has asked me to post the following until he gets the latest upgrade loaded to help protect this board from spammers/viral attacks, etc.

Use the following Email address for registering: hagshousehelp@att.net

The info you are providing helps us in the validating process and will be deleted afterwards. Validation is our biggest line of defense to prevent spammers, etc. from bothering/protecting our members.

1) List You Name & User Name. Keep in mind the username may already be used, so list a couple.
2) List a valid Email Address. This email address will be associated with your username.
3) How did you hear about us?
4) If you know a Member Here please list them and we may PM this person to validate. Make sure they know your name and your possible user name.
5) We may Contact You for more info, so follow the instructions.
6) If information provided checks out we will then Validate your membership and send a notice to the email you provided.
Congrats you will now be a member of Hags House.

This should help...

Ok, Thanks, Ill give it a try, bigdaddy have you tried that recently? Its not like I want Fort Knox access codes or a behind the scenes pass to the playboy mansion? Just kinda wierd, Its like the DMV, you need 5 forms of picture id and a stool sample from your moms dead dog! Im sorry, not trying to be an arse, im sure its tough to run a website and i hope chris has a speedy recovery.
