Hello, long time reader who joined with the 20+ updates. I think I first found Sluggy way back during the KITTEN storyline, and have always enjoyed catching up on it.

Posting here as apparently my access doesn't work without doing so? I had been following (and wanted to add information to) the 20+ support thread (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=95899&start=90) and saw that all posting access was seemingly locked down.

If I could make a gentle suggestion, it would be that if posting here is required first, to state that somewhere that will be more obvious to new users signing up. I tried looking for why I was seemingly blocked and couldn't find anything. I then tried seeing if I could direct message an admin to ask, and that seems locked down too. It was literally only by going through each chat forum in turn that I noticed it in the description of this one.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing what's yet to come for Sluggy! :)

Welcome to the forum kattiara!

Yeah the anti-spam measures can at times cause problems if you don't know what is going on. Though I thought the email you received when you signed up at least told you something about what you needed to do. Unless it's not very clear. I can't see what it says so I'm not sure if that's true or not, I'm just a Mod not an Admin. Oh and having the option to message an Admin would not really work here.

It doesn't help you, but with the site redesign we are getting/gotten much better anti-spam measures. So we may be able to get rid of this Intro requirement someday and go back to the olden days when people only posted here if they want to. I could explain how this system all came about if you want? People usually don't though.

Anyway (member's name here), you may be here to post in the forum or you were confused and thought you needed to be a Full Member to participate in non-forum things. You don't actually. Whichever it was, means you can post in the forum whenever the urge hits you, if you want. Now I will tell you about the strange tradition aimed at newcomers.

At one time there were Pesterers who pestered you for poetry, but that tends to be very rare nowadays. Even though you may not be pestered, if you do go and post an original poem--usually haiku but any (clean) type is accepted--written by you, you will most likely receive a gift in return. The "gift" will most likely be useless or maim you...a little. Whichever it may be, it should be interesting and surprising. Lastly, this strange tradition applies to the pestering not the poetry. You are not required to do anything more to be a member here...unless you want a gift.

Now go forth and do (almost) whatever you want, just don't speculate in Reactions.
