Public Mod Note: New members [Jan. 14th, 2011|10:51 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it



Just a heads up all... as you are likely aware, there has been a FLOOD of Russian spam hitting LJ these last few weeks. As such, we have had to step up the scrutiny of new members applying to MTF to try and keep that crap off your friends list.

Accounts with zero posts, the default layout, and a huge number of communities joined are, well, very often spam accounts and will not be approved. If you are a real person however, and feel you have been denied membership in error, just send me a private message, or make some posts in your journal (they don't need to be public, just show us that you are actually human), or comment on other people's journals or communities.

If a spammer does make it through, please send a private message to myself with a link to the spam in question and I will delete it as soon as I am able (though LJ may nuke it before I do).

Have a happy everyone :)

EDIT: aaaand we keep getting spam in THIS thread, so I will lock it and hope that they move on.

They're like roaches. You step on a bunch of them and the rest just melt into the background before they come back again.

;-; But I like my default layout! It makes me feel.. safe. ;)

Perfectly legit concern, and best of luck keeping out the spam bots.

it's just for new applicants who have zero posts, zero comments, no avatars, and many, many communities joined.

basically those who have done nothing on LJ except join communities.

Once you are active in some why, shape or form, there is no concerns what layout you use (I use default myself)
