New Members: YOU MUST MAKE A POST WITHIN 24 HOURS OF REGISTERING OR YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DELETED. ACCOUNTS WITH ZERO POSTS WILL BE DELETED. In other words, don't sign up unless you plan to actively participate in the message board immediately.

TRIED TO REGISTER AND GOT A MESSAGE SAYING YOU WERE BANNED? It's because you are in a country that is known for excessive spamming. Several countries have been banned, including the Philippines, India, Pakistan, most areas of Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam, and a few others. Sorry, but we cannot un-ban a specific IP address that is on our ban list. Please understand this usually has nothing to do with you as an individual; it has to do with excessive spamming coming from the country that you are in. If you are a legitimate member of this message board and find yourself locked out, please contact the admin at: webmaster (at) archwired (dot) com and we will investigate freeing up your account.

ACCOUNTS SOMETIMES GET DE-ACTIVATED when you change your password. If your account gets de-activated, send an email to the administrator: webmaster (at) archwired (dot) com. Include your username. The admin can reset your password and/or re-activate your account.

DO NOT POST FULL-FACE PHOTOS or personal contact information on this message board. We have had problems with people re-posting members' photos on fetish websites. Please only post photos of your teeth, not your whole face. Keep your email and your personal information private. If you add a website to your profile that contains a photo of your face or your real name, we will delete the website from your profile.

FETISH PMs, EMAILs and IMs WILL NOT BE TOLERATED ON THIS BOARD. Members will report you and you will be banned. Lifting photos or URLs to photos from this website's members for fetish or pornographic purposes is against copyright and is reason for immediate ban.

Characters and Name Types Not Allowed as User Names

#1 Post by bbsadmin » Sat Sep 16, 2006 9:14 pm

Starting today, the following characters will not be allowed in new user names (if your existing user name uses these characters, you should be able to log in as usual -- this applies only to NEW user registrations):

hyphen (-)

underscore (_)

period (.)

Other characters may be added in the future. If you try to register with a name that includes these characters, you will be taken back to the main registration screen and asked to pick another name.

For example: Amanda_Jones is not allowed, nor is Amanda-Jones. However, AmandaJones is acceptable.

The reason behind this: spammers -- trying to keep them out of registrations. We've had a rash of this crap lately and I'm trying to discourage it.
