As a new member that had to wait a few weeks before a friend qued in the admins cuz I "looked" like a proxy, I can easily support the update.

A few weeks? I think you guys may need a system to make it go faster, or smoother.

Some people call it "check the waiting list every day, stupid". Apparently not the Admins, though.

Its not oversight on the part of the mods, thank you very much.

We have an unofficial policy of not approving members using fake emails or proxies to hide their IP. Sometimes genuine new members get prevented from approval, but we've been able to instantly deny a lot which are suspected to be banned members trying to return.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

You should have applied for membership on your own computer. You had no MAC address and looked like a proxy.

That's why I made this topic. The new members are checked daily and if they don't show their hostname address, they won't be approved. I've approved two that members have vouched for as friends.

People who aren't approved remain on the waiting list. I recheck them weekly to see if they've tried to log in or if they show an address that's verifiable.

I was posting from my home pc.  I just have some stuff to stop hacking and as part of that it hides my IP, etc.  Plus I'm running Vista, which resets a new IP whenever you have connectivity issues.  I do a lot bc my router was made pre-Vista and isn't prepared to suck so much.

Your operating system can't change your IP address, only your internet provider can. Unless you mean the IP address on your LAN.

I have Vista and my IP doesn't change unless my router is turned off or reset by the service provider. Also I have a router and internet security software and none of it keeps an IP hidden. Only a proxy or bypass does that. We don't pick up router IP's we pick up real ones.

This is still something we have been forced to do so if someone is truly wanting to join, they can undo the proxies while they sign up or send an email to request membership.

Look, my pc's had a lot of network issues and it resets a lot.  And Kapersky's an all-in-one firewall/antivirus/IP BLOCKER.  I do not have a proxy server at all, It's my firewall that cloaks me.  It's the same reason Brogame won't accept my account submission.

Hey! You're here now.

Go to the break room, grab something to drink, and go make fun of a Keno.
