I forgot to check our new accounts for a couple days, and CRIPES! wow.... with our recent spike in traffic (CD raging the BSF) there was a surge of new accounts attempted to be made. If your "handle/username" is not english and a bunch of gibberish, I will not even check the user info, it's just instantly deleted (the Bots are getting "hip" and using terms and words found on our site... Sad )

-> If your trying to make an new user account, please read the user agreement (show upon signing up - make sure you have some reference to disc golf, otherwise, its deleted).

You might think it's pretty easy to check all accounts, but we're now getting upwards of 50 new users a day... where maybe 1 or 2 are actually "real". (commander knows whats up Smile )

Thank you and enjoy our site!

Disc Golf in Big Sky country!

website info

For anyone who had tried to access our website the past few days and wasn't able to, sorry. Had yet another SURGE of f-ing spambots that got the site "blacklisted" (kinda... http://www.gardencityflyers.org/site was still up.. but auto redirect was disabled from http://www.gardencityflyers.org ).

we are back up with full functionality... Smile

commander: I feel retarded for not doing this a LOOOONNG time ago, but we are able to block all those damn spambots by using a CAPTCHA ...... so far, only humans can register now (!!!!!!!) Laughing out loud yaaay

I would love to change my avatar but have no idea how to set/change pics for the avatar. Or how to find out how many pixels my pic is-or how to reduce the size of the pic so it fits.
Oh well-NOOB forever Smile
