Hello.
As you can see, I'm a brand new member. And the registration process gave me quite the headache. Some email providers are blocked to prevent spam and such. One of these is GMX. It's (probably) the biggest provider in Germany. But it is locked. Iced gave following explanation:

Quote
I was told that GMX allows users to continuously change their email names, which means they can keep re registering accounts with the same email for spamming. Thats why it was added to the disabled email service list.
Whoever has one can just change the email to a normal email provider and the account gets unlocked for posting unless someone had changed the ban to force it to prevent login.

this message "Invalid email, use a normal email server and not a spam mail. If you replace your email with a normal one you will be able to post again." shows to anyone with that email server.

That actually isn't accurate. You can't change "names" or anything like that. But I guess you refer to the address itself. And, yes, you are granted a second free mail address you can change at any time on a single account.. I do understand that while this is just a minor detail, it is basically only saving you two minutes compared to registering a completely new mail account altogether. And I also understand that this time saving may be crucial on your decision.

In my case, it's quite the hassle to create another mail account on a different provider just for this single community. Note, that this is not a one time thing, since there will always be times you have to tend to your mail account. Not to mention one might get locked because you didn't check your mails for too long.
The funny thing is, I took the effort to register with a different provider. It's a mayor spam mail provider that has been around for years. It worked flawlessly. I intended to change my mail address to my usual GMX one, because of security reasons and for comfort, of course. And the account gets locked. Like Iced mentioned, you have to change your provider even on existing accounts. I guess that's because of technical restrictions (blocking providers altogether instead of only on registration).

What I am trying to say:
I think blocking GMX is out of proportion considering the given reason. Is it that uncommon with mayor providers to get an additional, free to alter second email? Still, I can totally relate to sticking to the ban, but, if possible, I'd really welcome the possibilty to lift the ban for accounts already activated. As a side note, the account gets locked after succesfully activating your new mail address, in case the provider is banned.
I have been a happy GMX user for about 15 years. Their customer service has been splendid whenever there was problem. So it does upset me a bit being forced to look for an alternative solely to take part in the mugenguild board.


Thanks for taking the time to read this.

GMX had massive spambots logging in to post spam, dozens, to the point where we cut off the mail provider access. if any use rhas more email providers that offer spam they can and should tell us about it and we will increase the registry block.

Whenever someone attempts to register with a blocked provider the system informs the user that they cant register with the email providertype.. If someone was already logged in with a gmx account the system informs them they need to change the email provider type., this is so people that were registered in the past can change to any of the common accounts like Gmail.

you can always setup your gmail account to forward to your GMX, that will do away with most of your worries, but blocking new accoutns from registering under it means we can stop automatic spambot registry.

Cheers.

I see where you are coming from. Since it seems there has actually been quite some trouble going on, blocking said provider is probably the best solution.

Mail forwarding is something I intended to avoid, but I guess that is the only reasonable way. Thanks for mentioning gmail. I'll look into it, but I think this might be linked to my google account, isn't it? That would eleminate my greatest condern- losing access to the used mail account. Since my google account is linked to my mayor GMX account.

So, apart from that, I found a workaround. This might be probably something you want to be notified about. I can't write private messages, yet. And Valodim seems to be the only one in charge I can contact directly, since he does not hide his email. But he doesn't seem to be active recently. At which point will private messages be unlocked? Or is there another way to contact the staff? I assume I shouldn't post this information publicly.

PS:
Okay, seems I unlocked private messaging with this very post. I'll contact you.

there should be a more straightforward way to contact administrators without having an account (this would be useful for people that were banned by accident)

why am i being assumed the bad guy here??
he insulted me first. just look at this comment man
Maybe the problem isn't my jokes but how fucking stupid you are and how much of a sore loser you are. NUH-UH IT'S NOT THE SAME BECAUSE YOURS IS BAD AND MINE ISN'T, BECAUSE I'M THE ONE WHO POSTED IT
Dipshit.
3 insults outta nowhere and for no reason whatsoever.
i thought about reporting him without replying but last time i did that you guys just ignored it. so i defended myself.
but i reported him anyways and what you know you guys ignored him aswell.
you can't warn me for my response and just ignore his starting insult.

But this is what you always do, make personal attacks whenever someone makes fun of you until it degenerates. And you've been banned for that before. Saying I threw the first shot here is just plain dishonest.
BTW calling you a sore loser when that's exactly what you do isn't an insult.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I think the main problem is you went personal when he was just using GENERIC insults. It's an overreaction, and a low blow at that.

It's like:

"You're an idiot."
"Yeah well your mom is an alcoholic drug addict, she probably drank and shot dope while she was pregnant with you in an attempt to abort you."

Big difference.


I do agree Byakko needs to choose his battles better since to me, he seems to LOVE arguing, but you still overreacted.

This isn't so much a matter of me choosing a battle as it is him constantly getting upset when someone makes fun of him and trying to go "your jokes are lame". That's just annoying, hence my reaction.

You think your insults are the same as his. But you always go off the deep end.

He called you stupid and added theword "fucKing" before it. I can see how you'd find it aggressive but it doesn't mean you need to reply with
it's not news either you moron. it's a novel weird picture, who gives a shit if it's old or not.
go take a beating from from someone else douchebag, and make sure to run away from it too like you did with that vyx guy. you insecure insignificant piece of shit. fuck you and fuck your shitty karate that couldn't get you outta the hands of one meathead.

Like he calls you stupid and you go off the deep in by not only all the "fuck yous" but trying to get personal about it too. And you saying all that wouldn't have made it cool for Byakko to had insulted you for not getting a job due to weighing too much or whatever.

Basically someone throws a ball of paper at you and you always seem to throw a boulder back at them.

Not helped by being 24 hours removed from shitting on someone for posting on topic information. Of course the heat's gonna be more one-sided.

No need to split the thing, spats happen in the Random thread. I mean, that blowup early in the thread didn't get shitcanned either. Not like this is someone's fighting game fanwork thread being ambushed by nonsensical bullshit.

i shouldn't get called "stupid", "dipshit" and a "sore loser" for posting a picture or for making fun of him in his pitful attempt of making fun of me.
and im certainly not gonna wait for your inept handling of him.

I honestly think the biggest disconnect with you (Gennos) is that you seem to take yourself way too seriously and really have a hard time accepting the possibility you could be at fault with anything.

if someone got punched by an other person.
do you punish him for punching back however strong his punch may be?

i didn't start this, he posted one of his dumb logical fallacies and sugar coated it as a joke, stupidly comparing an obscure anime with jacob's story.
i told him he's dumb for it, and he flipped out on me.
if i reported him and didn't respond you're gonna ignore my report, because i guess he's your friend or something?
hell, the fact that not a single thing is being said to him now is proof enough of this.

You posting "that's not funny" or calling out something that's not even supposed to be a joke in the first place as "a bad joke" 50 times whenever someone makes fun of you or criticizes anything you say is "starting this". You're the one antagonizing anyone who says anything bad at you over several months because you can't take people telling you off. You're "starting this" when you take random sarcasm way too seriously and go all "your joke is lame" for no reason.
How are you not getting this.
