Sign up and join the kewel kids!  Rumproast member drive now open!  LIMITED TIME ONLY!!

Fed up fighting with Captcha?  Well, we sympathize but taking it down lets in sooooo many spambots.  So we’re having a registration drive this week.  Benefits of being an oh-fishy-all Rumproast member?  Ummmm, let me think.  Oh wait!  You can sign in on entry (or even use the setting to auto-sign in every time) and your comments can flow with ease.  No more squinting battles to make out those weird words.  Or, worse, figure them out and Captcha STILL won’t let you comment.  Also, too.  We promise never, ever to share your email etc. information with anyone else.  So follow the link on the sidebar and become a Rumproastateer!!  TODAY!!

With a pledge of elemty-skillion dollars, you get a handsome tote bag!

And a hat. Don’t fergit the hat.

Stupid question: I’ve been a Rumproaster since 2007. Do I need to reregister under a new name?

Kthxbye

donnah—I can see that you’re already registered.

Is it that you’ve forgotten your password (you last logged in in March 2010)?

If so, let me know and we’ll figure it out.

Oh boy!  All Rumplings report to the Rumper Room for your Initiation Hazing Ritual and Tiki Orgy!  Betty, you bring the rum.  YAFB, you’re Master At Arms, and also in charge of scotch.  Mrs. P, please tell Strange we’ll need him to bring along all of the more interesting pharmaceuticals he’s acquired.  I’ve got the Jell-o setting up in the hot tub and the turntables set to “felony Intent to Incite Funk.”

Don’t forget to sound off in the Rumper Room, newest Rumpies!  We are excited to say hello.

YAFB, no, I guess I’ve remained active and never been closed out of posting, so I just l have stayed logged in. No problems, just hoping I wouldn’t have to change anything. :-)

donnah—Nope, you’re fine. There were a few accounts set up that far back that never got activated, so they may have been deleted. If so, those folks need to re-register. Otherwise, you don’t need to do anything.

If anyone has forgotten their password, they can request an email reset at the login screen.

Any problems, just report them in this thread (assuming you can get past CAPTCHA ...).

Freaks.

Freaks.

One of us!  One of us!

I’m not joining your stupid club unless this guy is made a member. (skip to 2:00)

Wow, right on.  HB has a point.  Someone lasso that young man.

Tote bags and hats are fine, but what about an actual rumproast, cooked to perfection?

And don’t be stingy with the Yorkshire pudding!

But…but…I would miss getting to play Captcha!

Seriously though, its nothing against you guys, but I simply have a strong aversion to registering online anymore -period. 

Call it shellshock from having to maintain too many signins, logons, passwords and “secret questions tests” as it is…

LOL.  It’s totally optional G.  If you’re OK with wrestling Captcha to the mat that’s fine with us.  We’re responding to people who are not so patient.  ;-) (full disclosure - like me!)

I hear you, G—I registered in (I’m not checking my profile—I think 2010?) and promptly forgot my password. And I am lazy, so I never fixed it. So my profile has a hole in it about the size of all my comment-posting from about the first one after I registered until I started blogging here. Luckily, I never had much of a Captcha issue except for some posts of extraordinary brilliance and genius getting eated. You would not have believed them. Seriously! I don’t even believe them, and I wrote them.

Thanks guys.  Actually, I should clarify what the actual intent of my post is, as in re-reading it, I think it could be misconstrued.

First of all, I actually want to give you all a KUDOS for having the membership drive in the first place.  I do think it is a great idea and I realize why you are doing it.  I certainly encourage any out there to take advantage of it, if it is something they are interested in.

I just wanted to let you know why I personally won’t be registering myself, even though I fully plan to continue to lurk daily & occassionally chime in here, as I have been doing for over four years now. 

For me personally, the Captcha is just a minor inconvenience, and a price I’m willing to easily continue to pay, just so I can continue to contribute when I feel I’ve got something to add, without having to rack my addled brain over remembering which of my gajillion signons/passwords/etc. I need.

So Kudos for having both pathways towards participation available - both the membership and the Captcha.  I

really just wanted everyone to know how much I always look forward to reading both the articles and excellent commentary here on a daily basis and that even though I’m mostly silent and not listed on the “official membership roles”, I consider myself to be part of the RumpRoast community in my heart and will continue to pop up from time to time, as long as you will all have me.

Regards.

Harrumph.  Okay, but you’ve got to bring the nachos to the Rumproast Rock and Roller Derby.

Happy to do that anytime, provided a gathering takes place within driving distance for me.  Always wanted to go to one, but haven’t seen one in my neck of the woods yet. Heck, I won’t just be packing nachos, I’ll be bringing beer!  :)

G—no, I understood you the first time anyway.

The main point of the drive is that CAPTCHA plugin seems to screw up from time to time, meaning that some folks can’t comment.

After this drive is over, I’ll be turning off CAPTCHA occasionally for a while as long as it doesn’t lead to a flood of spam. That way, hopefully anyone who’s been having such problems can use that window to tell us about it, as we wouldn’t know there was a problem otherwise ...
