WHAT  WILL IT TAKE FOR USERS TO READ AND ACT ON THE REPEATED WARNINGS POSTED ON THE FORUM???????????

THIS APPLIES TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This morning another Member blocked themself PERMANENTLY form the Forum by entering incorrect login data. This was despite several warnings on the Forum and several personal emails to advise him what to do!!! PLEASE understand that THE SYSTEM will now PERMANENTLY BLOCK  YOU if you continue to make incorrect login attempts!! There is NO human override!! It is not rocket science. You need TWO  pieces of information to EASILY login to the Forum:

1: YOUR USERNAME - NOT YOUR EMAIL!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER YOUR EMAIL!!!!!!! NOT EMAIL -NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONLY!!!!  the unique USERNAME  that you registered when you joined the Forum. It is CASE SENSITIVE.  WRITE IT DOWN!!!  If you are not 100% sure email/PM and  ASK for confirmation. Also, MAKE SURE  that you enter your details in the relevant box when logging in. HUNDREDS of times a day, users enter nothing in the box where their USERNAME should go! The system does not like this. It thinks you are a bad man from Siberia trying to steal Barry from Cheltenham's bank details - it will PERMANENTLY BLOCK  you!!!

2: YOUR PASSWORD  - WRITE IT DOWN!!!!!!! Only YOU know you're password. It is also CASE SENSITIVE!! You can change it to something MEMORABLE by going to PROFILE-> ACCOUNT SETTINGS on the main page of the Forum - the Index page, if you will. IF you don't know what you're doing with a computer, email or PM and ASK before you BLOCK  yourself. MAKE SURE YOU ENTER IT IN THE BOX WHEN LOGGING IN!!  Hundreds of times a day, users enter nothing in the password box. The system will PERMANENTLY BLOCK  YOU from the site if you do not follow these simple instructions.

APOLOGIES FOR RANTING BUT there will soon be an empty Forum if users do not act responsibly. The system has had it's security upgraded because of very serious threats posed by cyber criminals. Threats to YOU! Hundreds of cyber attacks a day are being averted. The security protocols are there to protect you and other users. I cannot continue to post the same warnings every day, only for them to be read by the same few users. This will be the LAST warning I'm afraid. 

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! It should only take an extra few microseconds to log-in if you make sure you know what you are doing. Again - if you have worries, get in touch via email or PM.

All the best,

Stewart
