Quick Tips: (Updated March 21st, 2014)

Due to a shockingly high number of fake spam accounts flooding the new registrations, we have temporarily closed new registrations to the forum. We are working on a solution to block the spammers without having to block genuine registration requests.

PLEASE READ the "Quick Tips" thread on this forum before contacting the moderators or admin about any issues you might be having. You will find the Quick Tips answer a lot of questions (logging in, editing posts, et cetera). The web staff appreciate those who read before posting and emailing. Thank you!

Some important threads: Where did my account go? | Search Feature 101

A special note: If you are blatantly rude to people, don't be surprised when you are permanently banned. Be nice, or be gone.

 

Go Back   Depeche Mode Message Board > Depeche Mode > Board Information / Alerts

Board Information / Alerts Come here to read the latest board announcements (downtime, upgrades, et cetera). Also, be absolutely sure to read "The Rules Of The Board". It will answer MANY questions you might have.

Default "Why won't you reply to me?"

I get emails occasionally from people, stating that they are emailing me, and are annoyed that I am not reply. The problem is that I am replying, but their ISP sucks (for lack of a more professional term).

Example:

Hi,could you please tell me why my account became inactive (I had to re-register today). Thanks.

(name_withheld_by_admin)@earthlink.net


I sent a reply, and received this:

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<(name_withheld_by_admin)@earthlink.net>
(reason: 550 (name_withheld_by_admin)@earthlink.net...User unknown)


I encourage everyone who thinks they are having email problems to talk to their ISP (internet service provider). Your problem might be bigger than you think.

Why can't I edit my posts?

Due to abuse, this feature will NEVER be turned on again. Please learn to take care when typing your posts.

The answer is there, *IF YOU HAD BOTHERED TO READ*!!!!!!

Even so, seems like unbalanced collective responsibility, how many people abused it compared to the innocent members who would benefit? If someone is abusing things it should be on their head only with when there could be hundreds of people coming here.
