Again, no disruption to normal topic flow so just deleted it and the post.

How one's first post reads

Postby Turlough » Tue Nov 26, 2013 1:20 pm

Back in 2005 when I joined Unity I had a question which may have seemed disrespectful: How did Eithe do all that percussive humming in "Afer Ventis" on "Shepherd Moons"? Was someone thumping her on her back? A few friendly members came back helpfully; I even remember someone suggesting I could get an answer from China Rose! :mrgreen:

The new member experience was so much simpler then.

I don't even need to read the posts anymore - just check the whois and if I see the telltale ".PK" then bam! Toast.
Thanks Suvi :)

Is "Dave" who posted as Moya-guest on the "Welcome to Moya's Forum" thread for real? If so he seems to need help joining and we don't want to throw out the baby with the bath water.

Hi Turlough, I don't know. The email address goes to a domain that I know does not exist any more and an account called "moya-guest" was first registered on September 11th 2006.

Whether someone else has come along and trying to use the same name I can't say.

When people just say "My registration didn't work" but without giving a reason as to why it failed, all I can do is ask on the forum (as I have no way of contacting that user otherwise) or guess.

It's getting quite toasty where aaidenlayton has gone :)
