To new new users who've registered on the site, welcome to EFH.

As the site administrator though, I have one request - please read the site rules before you start posting on the site. Some of the rules might seem silly to you, but they're in place for a reason - to make the site run smoother and try to keep the vitriol down - so I'd ask that you abide by them.

Link: The Rules

One particular one to note that I seem to have to point out to many new users is the rule banning SMS style abbreviations when posting on EFH (such as "u", "r", "b", "2", "ppl" etc). They make reading your post more difficult, so please make some effort to spell words according to the correct English spelling. Even if you're posting from a mobile phone.

Moderation of new user's posts
I've had to introduce moderation of new user's posts for the sole reason that spambots sign up explicitly to post spam. This way I can catch spammers before they annoy the general posting body.

The result is an unfortunate requirement that new poster have their first five posts moderated (so we can tell if someone's trying to abuse the forum system). New posters are also not permitted signatures (spambots put spam in signatures) or avatars, but those facilities will become available once the user has reached the five post limit. New users are also unable to send Private Messages.

Please don't be afraid to post as a consequence of this. The moderation is solely to catch spambots, not to pick on new users. If your post is a genuine attempt to post, it will be approved, and you will be notified that it was approved. It may take a bit of time, but it won't be too bad.

The moderation system can also be applied to existing posters who are placed on probation.

Guys, are you serious?

Have a look at the font size for the rules. My one good eye (the eagle one) only barely makes them out.

Here's an idea for the filter. Let's change "(Mr Filter says keep it clean)" to "[Greg Williams]". As in:

Greg Williams is a complete [Greg Williams].

Honestly, I think that name you just said should be moved onto the filtered list. Do we really want kids coming on and seeing such filth?

I like your thinking, and am going to implement that.

Can we go one step further and replace Williams with Headland?
Do or do not!
There is no try.

Williams was the [Greg Williams] that Headland only wanted to be.
