Exclamation Fan Forum changes...


We've made some changes to the FAN FORUM which will limit access to a couple of features for those who haven't posted a certain number of messages up to this point, as well as those we discover are taking both ours and other members contributions and placing them at various different places on the Internet without crediting both the contributor and source of the material!

We don't want the value of the site to be diluted and as we've tried very hard over the years to make this a real GLENN HUGHES community, we hope these changes that are now in place, will both encourage member participation and community camaraderie.

We put a lot of time and effort into bringing you this GLENN HUGHES site for FREE and want to keep it that way, but if after these changes, we still keep seeing the same pattern, we will be forced into considering a Premium VIP membership scheme, which will help offset some of the costs that we incur on a monthly basis to bring you this site, and in turn, get some contributions back into the community from the free loaders, if they decide to stick around!

Please remember that GLENN is an avid supporter of our work and fully endorses the site. If you wish to continue to see and hear material that he approves, provides and gives insight into, then you will clearly see where we are coming from.

For most of you, you won't notice any changes at all, but for others, we feel it is time to bring this GLENN HUGHES community up to the level that it deserves.

If you are one of those effected by these new restrictions, all you need do is post the appropriate number of messages and/or demonstrate to us you've made changes to wherever you placed both ours and other contributors material and we'll then promote your membership with full access once again.

What are the new restrictions? They will become obvious when you run into them

Please note - if we find multiple posts from members that are obviously made just to bump up their post count - they will be deleted! Examples include comments like, "thanks", "good job", "cool" etc, etc.

On a side note, we are also experiencing the infamous, SpamBots! They attempt to infiltrate the forum by trying to register and post spam messages. On the back-end we've implemented a few things to prevent this becoming a real issue and so far have been successful in thwarting such actions. One of these tools however, does require a simple question to be answered and for those of you who are current members, you will find it in your "User CP" in the "Edit Options" section - look for it at the very bottom of the page. If you don't answer, it doesn't restrict you in any way, other than not being able to update your profile settings.

Thanks for your cooperation.
