Disabled registrations
« on: December 16, 2014, 09:13:33 AM »

I didabled all registrations as we were getting flooded by fake ones.

If you know of an owner that wants access, ask them to contact me @ email@jrbarnard.com and I will manually create them a login and email it to them.

So far, we have a little over half the owners on here, I think.

Would be awesome to get all of them, but I doubt that will happen.

So what does that mean? Do we all have to re-register? What do you mean "fake" registrations?

This caused me to think about the accessibility of the website to outsiders. All those photos, and other info, might be like "on-line shopping" for poachers. They can locate where to find the best game, and even what tracts to find it on.... They might even be able to identify the days we are out there, and when we are likely not. I recall an earlier post where one member said, "If the gate is unlocked, come on in for a visit." Well, I know from this website that if the gate is locked, this person ain't around and I'll climb over the gate and maybe get a shot at one of those big WTD bucks that he posted pictures of on the website!

The owners section is locked. The open registration is only good to get into the site. They cannot see anything till I approve them, so we were never "at risk" it was just annoying... heh

There is nothing that generates interest in the site.. heh.. if they are told about it, they join.

If I opened the site to anyone, folks would start getting worried about their privacy ;)

There are groups. If you belong to a certain group, you get to see forums.

If you are part of the ""land owners" group.. you get the PoA private section.

If you get approved but do not belong to a group, you get the welcome and general sections.

If you are on the board, you get the PoA board member's section.

The general and wildlife sections are the same group. I just divided them to make it easier to manage and more aesthetically pleasing.

worked too, huh?;)
