Welcome to the world of GHQ. First, thank you for your interest in becoming a registered member of our forum. This forum is a fantastic resource for information on military gaming, history, modeling, etc., and it would not be possible without valuable members like you. To cut down the number of spammers on our forum, no accounts are automatically acitvated, all registration forms are first screened with human eyes. To help our screeners, and to make sure that your account is activated, please follow these suggestions:

- DO NOT put anything about por-nography, drugs, phar-maceuticals, online gambling sites, s-e-xual products, etc. anywhere in your profile.

- Be sure to list that military history, modeling, gaming, etc. is one of your interests, or hobbies.

-DO NOT list a commercial website in your profile.

Because this forum is paid for and maintained by GHQ, we ask that you do not include any website addresses for other companies in your postings. We try to keep a very friendly and informative atmosphere on our forum, so please refrain from using profanity and any name calling. When in doubt about placing a post, take 15 minutes to think about it, before hitting the "Submit" button. All posts are subject to being edited or deleted by any of our forum moderators. This forum has got a lot of very informed regular users, and offers a welath of information. It is a fantastic tool for people who are just getting into military gaming and modeling, as well as those who have been active in the hobby for decades. Use it, have fun with it, and be an active member on it!

Thank you for your support,
GHQ

This is just a quick update to the thread. Originally this was started to make it easier to start a forum account, and to keep the spammers out. All account registrations are looked at with human eyes, and any registration that lists d-rugs, s-ex, por-no-graphy, ponzi schemes, etc. or websites about any of those things anywhere is not activated. Not surprisingly the spammers have gotten smarter about what they put on their registrations. Now many spammers are not putting anything but an e-mail address into their registration. This is sort of a Trojan Horse. Once the account is activated, then they will put up their postings until they are caught and the account is deleted.

This new spamming technique has caused us to re-iterate our request that any new accounts list something about:

military history
miniatures gaming
military modeling
model railroading
etc.

Please list these things somewhere in your profile. This will let us know that you are actually a legitimate forum user.

We have had some complaints lately about the length of time that it takes to activate a forum account. If one of those items listed above is included, it will usually take about one day to have your account activated. We are erring on the safe side to keep the spammers out. We have had a relatively spam-free period for the last year, but it is only because we have been very vigilant about keeping the spammers out. If you do not add an interest in something relating to GHQ products, your account is not deleted, but it is not activated. Often times we have had someone ask us why their account has not been activated, and when we look into the matter we see that there is nothing related to GHQ products listed in their profile. After receiveing their e-mail we can see that they are legitimate, and we activate the account.

Please keep in mind that we are doing this to make our forum a much more enjoyable place for all of you to stop by and see what's going on. Please help us out, and have some patience if your account isn't activated right away.

Thank you all for making this such a valuable place for new and experienced gamers/modelers to come and exchange information.
