In the last year I have bought 2 bows through the classifieds. This morning I see only select members can view the classifieds. Make me wonder, what does it take to be a select member?
I have no problem accessing either of the forums.
Works fine for me.
Just set up this website for people that pay the yearly dues to use it. Problem solved !
I have been excluded also. recently in the last month or so there have been 3 attempts to scam me out of a bow that I've had for sale here and elsewhere. The scammers were from the other sites but there seems to be an upswing in these actions. So beware out there and be sure to get your $$$$$ before shipping.
That sounds like a personal vendetta. Anybody been ostracized lately?
A minimally used archery website, like this one, is a strange venue for a targeted attack
Just checked, I'm excluded also. Now I feel slighted. 😪
Is this how it gets started?
ok guess ok
I cant post anymore?
I don't think it would be a bad idea to allow only those that make a monetary contribution to the site to access those areas. Be nice to mitigate the scammers. Let us know, I would go for that
There was someone on the site the last two days registering fraudulent accounts, and that person created over 200 posts that needed to be deleted from over 200 newly created accounts.
The person was only attacking three sections. I deleted the Left hand bow section and made the classified and video section private to lock that person out.
At the moment there is not a Select Member. Anyone can register to the site howe it was so bad that it may not be a bad idea to allow only contributing members to access the site.
I too would like to know how to be a select member. I frequently check the classifieds and actually saw the fraud post yesterday you are referring to.
I understand. It certainly makes sense to lock out the morons.
So is there a way for me to access the classifieds down the road?
The day before yesterday a someone deliberately created over 200 fraudulent posts that had to be removed.
Last night starting at midnight the same person created a post a minute on the Classified and Video section. From midnight to 1:00 am in the morning I was deleting the posts as they were being made. This person would not stop creating these fraudulent posts.
I had to make the 2 sections that were being used Private so this person would not have access to those two sections and continue posting.
This individual created over 200 fraudulent accounts so each post was individually done. I was able to just block one person.
Over the past 10 years, there has been some individuals the attemptEd the same thing but not to this magnitude.
