Please be aware that TTF is currently receiving an enormous number of bogus new accounts for approval. This morning, there were 41! None of the administrators has time to check each of these individually, so we have to settle for scrolling through the list and clicking, by instinct, on those that look genuine. In this way, I found two "real" new accounts and rejected the rest as a block.

So, if you have recently applied for TTF membership and not yet received approval, we may have missed you. Please accept apologies and try again!

One other thing to add:

Most of these bogus accounts appear to be random letters and numbers.  If you want to substitute numbers for letters in your name like "l3fty" instead of "lefty" you may get lost in the scuffle.

Normally a name like "Fred35" is OK, but "5F3Qlbq" will probably not get a second look.
