    Attention New Registering Users

    Most new accounts that are not approved are due to the below rule not being followed:

    All requests for membership MUST use their real name for the username in the format First name Last name, without numbers. No "screen names" will be accepted.

    Due to the number of bot registrations, I am only manually looking at registrations that meet the following pattern (first name) space (last name). e.g. John Smith

    Registration attempts with a user name that contains numbers, or that otherwise does not meet the above format will be deleted and not reviewed by a human admin.

    It is actually in the rules that no one reads on the registration page. I am trying to get the registration page itself updated, but evidently that will take some time.
