All guests & newly registered members:

We have begun once again selectively approve new member accounts. A number of new accounts have been approved and there are still a few in pending status. Karen will get around to reviewing each account and then accepting or rejecting it based on certain predetermined criteria.

If you have registered a new account and would like a speedy approvals, please drop us an email to the following address from the the address you registered with:

helpdesk "AT"

Please be sure to stick something relative in the subject line, so we know by looking at the subject line and can quickly answer the request.

Thank you for your patience. This measure will only be temporary.
Hi Everyone,

This evening, I have approved a number of new users. Only a small handful of users have not yet been approved, please wait awhile longer.

Today's Update! (Sunday)

We approved another round of new members. Thank you for patient!:D
As a reminder:

If your email address fails, as in we get a error back from the mail service, those accounts are deleted and you may try again with another email address.

The most common problem we see is with Yahoo! email accounts. We see a lot of error messages coming back such as:

Mail Server said:
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 554 554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a account ( [-6] - (state 17).

Thanks for your understanding.
Effective Immediately:

We will no longer accept registrations from any addresses with the suffix:

People using these addresses have caused too many problems with bounce backs from Yahoo. (i.e. see my previous message above) If you have a TAG account and already successfully registered with a address (13 users), there will be no change to your account unless an email sent to your account is bounced back to us.

The registration notice will be updated shortly to reflect this change.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
