    Nov 11, 2006, 12:13 PM - RPF Membership open until November 15th #1

    A while back I helped a few people join the RPF who were having trouble signing up, I just noticed that registration is open again this year so I thought I'd post this for those who are interested.

    I've met a lot of great people here on the Dented Helmet and also the Replica Prop Forum, here is the information copied from the RPF post, I hope this helps...

    Scheduled Open Registration - November 1st - November 15th

    To register on the RPF, you must submit a legitimate e-mail address fromyour ISP (ex: Earthlink, RoadRunner, Comcast, etc.) for verification purposes.

    Registrations from FREE email accounts (ex: YAHOO, HOTMAIL, GMAIL, etc.) are NOT ACCEPTABLE, and will be denied activation and subsequently removed. To register on the RPF you must register with a legitimate e-mail address from your ISP (ex: Earthlink, RoadRunner, Comcast, etc.) for verification purposes within the registration period and must maintain a legitimate email address on your account at all times. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS.

    For those still having problems signing-up, keep in mind that Free Email accounts won't be accepted, That goes for earthlink.net, gmail.com, hotmail.com, msn.com, aol.com, juno.com, netzero.net, etc.

    This isn't to annoy people or make their lives more difficult, it's because of a few bad apples have abused the RPF and now they had to take precautions to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    hey propsculptor, is there anyway you could help out TDH members that only have freeby accounts, i'm in the same boat as mrgr8ness. Like talk to the admin there on our behalf? If not, that's cool, i'm content with the awesome community here.

    They must be mistaken about which services are actually free.

    I've spoken to the Moderators on behalf of TDH members who have had a few problems signing up, but the No Free-EMail accounts is something they won't compromise on because of past members who abused the Forums for their own reasons and now they have ruined it for nice people like you who simply want to join-in.

    I tried regging with my school email addy, as it is my service provider -- cmich.edu... Not sure if it'll work, just tried regging and haven't gotten an email yet, but it should have been close to instantaneous, right? I got a message saying registration was successful on their site, and that an email was sent...

    Think it'll work...?
