As the membership of Online Scribblers has grown substantially in recent weeks, and also the amount of members' work in the forums is increasing, we have decided that to best protect the copyright of our members' work a more selective method of membership registration should be put in place.

To this end we have introduced admin validation of new members. This will mean that from now on any new membership application will be approved or rejected by admin.Online applications -

After receiving an online application for membership admin will send an e-mail to applicant asking them to give a brief profile of themselves. If the candidate is suitable then their application will be approved.

Referrals - Applications can me made by referral. If an existing member would like to refer someone for membership you should send an e-mail to admin with your request. If the candidate is suitable then we will pre-register the new member and send them the log-in details.

We feel that the above measures will not only protect our members' copyright but will ensure that new members from now on will be participating members, this will help to build the forums into a truly interactive community.

Debra & Dave
Online Scribblers admin team
