    Hi, I used to post on backyardchickens.com a lot but got tired of being locked out by some silly forum software that sent emails... not sure about this forum yet making you post something before updating your profile. What the heck is up with that? Sorta looks like the same forum software backyardchickens.com uses I hope not.

    Hi and welcome! I think a lot of forums are set up like that . But don't let that scare you away!

    Most forums do that, it helps with things like being flooded with spams and trolls. The BYC problem is just an internal problem that the mods are too lazy or don't care about to fix. I know I got nervous when I first joined here because the software is almost identical (not exactly but very close). My only problem here is that even though I have all email notifications turned off....I still get a billion emails every day.
    @seminolewind
    @chickenqueen
    anybody know how to turn those completely off?

    I just turned everything off I can find in my account... we'll see.

    I'm administrator on a forum and we don't have any issue with spammers they get weeded out when they try and register. To lock someone out with 1500 posts because an email got bounced back is just stupid. They really need a reality chick over at BYC. I sure will miss the conversations with my friends over there.

    Any moderators know if this software is set up to lock you out for a bounced email?

    Well I'm locked out at the moment... I've sent them a request but like last time I don't expect them to do anything about locking me out.

    If anyone here still has an active account at BYC please tell aart what happened to me. I really enjoyed conversations with her.

    Aart? really, she is one of the ones I left BYC because of. Maybe it's just me, I can be hard to live with sometimes I guess.

    I guess we just hit it off because I'm a builder or she changed dunno. She seems ok to me.

    I'm sure she's very nice, it's just that our personalities didn't work together. :)

    Hello @jthornton!

    Your username is familiar- I think I've seen you around before.

    @Sylie. I haven't had many conversations with Aart but I somehow feel I'm not on her good books ;P

    I've come to CF to take a break from BYC. I got so stressed over there.....

    I plan to return to BYC when I have a free Sunday.....which is probably the 17th of June :p

    yeah Aart can be a little....passive aggressively rude. I came here because of the stress and rudeness at BYC, it's much nicer here

    I am here because of a mega problem with admin and people who have nothing better to do but spend their time reporting people like it was their job. Being on a social thread was good. The ER was good except for all those who offered crap advice and was followed by the OP. So I prefer a forum where people care about things you talk about and are interested in stuff that happens in your life, everyone 99% of the time practices respect and brings a lot of interest and subjects that are great.
    But I guess it's a preference. Large group of people you don't know or a smaller group of people who you have better relationships with.

    I still use the other one as a resource if I need to.

    I agree with this 100%, I really like it here but you're right, personal preference, some people prefer the larger groups and like you, I do pop back there now and then when I need to but really, it's not often at all. I just like it here better
