I am getting overloaded going through each new "member" before I can activate or delete them. They are coming in about 6 a day and I get up to these forums usually every third day. I only can spend so much time on the computer (even with the laptop) and it is painful for me.

99% of the "members" coming in are NOT ACCEPTABLE. They are either selling something, looking for women and "love", or simply highly suspicious.

I wind up spending most of my time on the ELC Forums checking through and deleting these people, leaving little time for actually reading the posts and posting myself! And that includes any "messages" from El'vis that might come through spontaneously.

True, they can't post if not activated, but there would be HUNDREDS of them listed as members -- many with objectionable names or web addresses, etc.

What I would need is someone JUST TO GO THROUGH THESE NEW MEMBERS - either deleting them or activating them. They would have to be an "Aministrator" to do this, but would not do any "administrating" but this one thing. It wouldn't take long if you did it each day and didn't let them build up.

ANYONE ? PLEASE HELP!!

If you step forward then I will send you a personal e-mail on how to tell the ones you want to delete if it is not immediatly obvious to you.

THANKS!!! :) :) :)

Maia how do you get to see potential new members?
Do you need something special to go there? I haven't seen anything but the list of them. I didn't know you had to do that every day-I am an administrator aren't I? I can help do that probably-but I am going to have to have my computer fixed-starla is getting a new company provided laptop with satillite service-I could use her's when my computer is gone just long enough to do that couldn't I? Nothing special about which computer does it is there? Or would it possibly bring crap to ELC using her world wide access laptop? I am stupid about such things. I'm using my computer now because I did another reset back to Jan. when it worked pretty good.
This won't last long as the last one only worked about 5 weeks before it relasped again. Let me know how and I'll give it a try and maybe someone else will help too. wjh

Maia,
I'd be happy to try and help you and Wanda out with this however I can. :D If you'd like to e-mail me with whatever instuctions I need in order to help accomplish this task, I'd be happy to try and take some of the heavy load off of your shoulders. :D My only concern is that I've heard from other people I know who have run or been in charge of websites that sometimes those people who try and sign up with suspicious names actually are uploading some type of computer virus when they sign up with those weird or suspicious names. :?: :? Is that true? Like Wanda said, I don't know much about these kind of things so please forgive the ignorance of my question. :oops: I just don't want anything to happen to ELC or anything that might make my computer act goofier than it already has been. :) Please just let me know if I can be of any help to you. :D

Thanks Wanda and Maryinthemorning!

First, I will confer through e-mail with Wanda to see if her "administration" link is even working!

I will get back to this thread soon.

I gladly will help too, I 've noticed that lots are joining with very weird websites. Even porn websites. If you tell me what to do, I gladly will help too.

Thank you Alna.

I have sent Wanda the "protocol." After reading it, if she still wants to try it, we will start with her. Then after awhile, she will probably want a break, and another one of you can take over, then another, etc.

This will help me out alot, since I also have the SM Forums to work with. They had been free of all this, then all of a sudden, a bunch of "dirty jokes" posts! So now I have THAT to deal with. :roll:

Mary and Alna-Nadine, Wanda is having computer and eye problems...so maybe one of the two of you could take it up for awhile? I am sending you both the "protocol" via e-mail. Check it out and get back to me as to whether or not you think you can and want to handle it.

Thanks again!

Sue, Thanks to Mari (Maryinthemorning), I send her the "user accounts" of new members and she goes up to check them out and either DELETE them or activate them. Sadly, most have to be deleted. Probably less than 1% are not spam!

It's best to have just one person at a time doing this, but if / when Mari has had enough, then maybe you could do a shift?

I simply can't add it to my work right now...health first and our organization / living expenses met, second. There is barely any time for me to even read the posts on ELC right now. This upsets me, as I LOVE to come up here...but "that's the way it is" at this time. My health does continue to improve as we (Simeon and I) learn more about my true core condition and how to correct it. Before we were more or less just trying one thing and then another, not knowing what we were really trying to CURE! Now that we have a "bead" on it, much more progress is being made. Still, it is a slow process and I must put A LOT of time and attention on it, as does Simeon.

So the bottom line is I SO appreciate all of you who are helping to keep these forums going, each in your own way! :)

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL!

You're more than welcome Maia for any help that I can give to you especially considering all you're going through with your health issues right now. Glad to hear that you and Simeon are making progress with all of that and I pray for God's healing blessings to surround you as you continue dealing with this. :D Like I've said before, if you need help with anything else, please feel free to let me know. :D
