Isn't that Krang's responsibility? He hasn't been on for a long while.

Yeah, that falls on Krang, who has been pre-occupied. It could be a while.

No, there is not. & since Krang is very inactive these days, it may yet be a while.

Krang and Shredder are the only ones that have the ability to do that. Wish we could help more, but none of us moderators have the ability to do so.

I do think admin account validation on a forum where the admins are never around is a pretty terrible idea. My sympathies.

Maybe Jester needs to change his name and be elevated to admin.

Should we have a poll to choose the new admin name?

"Bishop"
"Null"
"Ch'rell"

Yeah, but it has a plus side or two, I think. The wait would probably piss off/turn away people who are coming here with the express purposes of milking our BST section, trolling, advertising/spam, etc. At least the ones who make the cut & get into gear are those who genuinely want to be a part of the community (one hopes).

Sooo, how did all those fake Mew accounts get made hours after he posted his phoney ass goodbye thread?

Is Krang goku??!??

New accounts show up on the feed regardless of whether or not they've been activated, to my understanding.

Netkeeper

Yeah, they do. Accounts that haven't been activated yet still appear on the member and online list and can still be logged into.

Yep. They can't post or access PM's or anything like that.

Check back in what respect, bumping this thread? It's not gonna help. He will activate those waiting when he returns.

Like Powder said. When he's less busy in the real world he will come on and see the que of new users.

Ok, sure, a month wait would weed those out. But the last time Ive seen Kraang on here, and at least the last time he made username changes, was in December... 6 months ago...

Maybe hes been around and just not checked that thread, but if it takes 6 months for new members to get approved, I think that just prevents any new members, cause theyre going to give up.

Not dissing Krang here at all, real life stuff definitely happens and obviously comes first. The guy does a lot and has for a long time. Just think that if theres going to be this long of absences for a lot of drome functions, itd be a good idea to have another mod or two with the same abilities to keep things moving.
