Hi all,

I used to have a \"contact\" form on this site so you could easily get a message to me if you needed help with this website, but I had to hide that. It seemed that no matter what I did, I still got messages like \"I need a new starter motor for my PT Cruiser, can you help me\"!

So instead, let\'s trying using this forum thread.

If you need technical help regarding anything here on this website, post your question here, and I\'ll try to assist.

But keep in mind that I\'m sometimes under a lot of pressure with work and family demands, so it could take me many days before I can find a chance to reply.

Hang in there, be patient, and keep enjoying your cars. B)


Shane.

Hi Shane,

Time to give this thread a try!
I have had contact from a potential member, but when he tried to register on the forum he received a message back that he was a potential spammer! (This also happened to me recently when I tried to register my wife separately from myself).
I guess that there are some sort of filters in the system, so is there a way that you can get round them and register this new member?
I will send you his email address in a \'pm\'.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

I\'ve had about 5 contacts over the past few months saying the same but have forwarded messages via email to the Administrator but no reply!
I have a phone number to contact but didnt really want to use it on every issue.

I\'m alive. Just. :)

This last few months has seen a huge increase in spammer traffic (and this last week especially), so all filters have been tightened up.

Sadly this means that some real humans trying to register here might get rejected. Especially those with hotmail accounts.

And this also means that sometimes emails that you moderators send to me get put in my junk mail folder automatically too. I generally try to monitor emails that get filtered automatically, but some are bound to slip through.

That\'s why I recommend using this thread. B)

For anyone you hear of that wants to register but is getting blocked, send me a PM with their email address and their preferred username, and I\'ll create their account manually.

Thanks for that Shane,
I had assumed that it was related to filters.
I\'ll get in touch with Tony and send you a pm.

What about those that we don\'t hear of? Is there any way to tell real humans how to overcome the filter or who to contact?
