Thanks Doug, it's all you guys & galls.  Without you all participating we wouldn't have a Forum.  

I was thinking last night that the next member will be #500.  This time with the new registration process, I think all of the registered members are or were at one time interested in old telephones!  We hit 500 before but I deleted probably 150 accounts that turned out to be people that joined just to post links to various sites.

Yesterday for instance I received 16 notices of  new registered members awaiting approval.  I only received 2 e-mails from someone wanting to join in on the discussions.  So I have to assume the other 14 were just spammers.  Every once in a while I don't get the e-mail request to be approved from the "real" person until several days later.  Some have said they didn't notice the requirement to e-mail me.  So I thank everyone that jumped through hoops to join the Forum.  Hopefully it will be worth it in the end.  

Thanks to all!

~Dennis

It is definetly worth it! Sending an email to confirm is not exactly jumping through hoops. The amount of information and helpful people here is outstanding and the amount of spam and BS is nil. Not many forums can say that!
Thanks Dennis ;D

I've seen alot of forums .... this is by far the best managed. The content
is also superior to anything .... but thats to be expected i suppose from dedicated phone nuts.

Kudos to those in charge !
