    I registered like 2 weeks ago and I'm still in the moderation queue. Does it suck this bad or did I fail somewhere along the line? [​IMG]

    The Registration for NeoGaf is BullShit.
    They dont accept Email accounts from Hotmail,Gmail, Yahoo Mail,etc because they wanna resist spammers accounts.

    WTF?!?!

    LOL yeah, though it's not that bad of a system if you go to a university.

    NeoGAF registration can take months.. and you still might be rejected after all that time [​IMG]

    There's a lot of people from the industry and game journalists in there.. they're very picky about who can join.. [​IMG]

    Given how basically everyone who's anyone in the Western videogame industry has a NeoGAF account - and given how they often share information within NeoGAF before the rest of the internet - I can see why it's so hard to get in. They basically cross-reference your posts in other forums and whatnot, to see if you'd actually add anything to the forums rather than merely piss around. They're picky because they have to be. NeoGAF is basically THE forum for videogames. They can't just let people spam the boards up, hence the lockdown.

    How the hell is that even possible? I mean if I use a different username than any other forum, and a different e-mail, how would they do it? Especially since my IP changes daily [​IMG]
