My situation is different I am in a inactive club and a active club one is a PNW4WDA Club and one is not, Joey and I became individual members to get involved with PNW4WDA when we were riding with the first club but were not members of the club yet because of wheel base size, well 2 years later they let us join but many were dropping out of the club so we decided to stay as individual members (good call) later they all pretty much quit riding, now with the new club it is only individual by choice because not all members want to be in it. I personally hated the politics and having to go to every meeting that became a gripe session and no one was willing to wheel anymore, lots of excuses. The club we are in now we are not required to go to all the meetings and we wheel and volunteer more in the last year then we did in the 3 yrs. with the other club. If this club I am in now became a PN4WDA Club I would not mind it at all because I know the meetings would not be a gripe session and I know there will still be a whole lotta wheelin.

so, I sent this link onto a friend who is in a group of about 15 or so rigs, they have a club and I have asked them many times why they do not join the PNW. He tried to sign up at this forum and this is what he received:

> "Unfortunately your registration at Pacific Northwest Four
> Wheel Drive Association did not meet our membership
> requirements. Therefore your registration was deleted.
>
> Sorry,
> Pacific Northwest Four Wheel Drive Association"

Wow, good luck ever getting them onboard.

I am left wondering what our membership requirements for a login are and who determines this on this forum?

they are out of Graham area and his username was "boatycall" not anything racey in my opinion.
I simply wanted him to participate in this thread and perhaps give some insight as to why they have not joined the PNW.

I determine who gets thru for the most part.
Folks are required to answer a few questions. If the do not they do not get thru.

We get approx. 30 spammers a day.
Each one of them has to be reviewed and clicked thru. I wont even go into some of the names they use.
But they are from all over the world, and judging by some of their names their intent is less than honorable.

I can always be PM'd if there is any trouble getting someone thru who is a friend or referred by someone already here.

Members can have the confidence that folks here are legit and real, and not some porn spammer from some Island Nation somewhere.




Edit: The message you see is automatically generated when accounts are deleted.
The questions asked are simple questions designed to make sure folks are who they say they are, and are interested in four wheeling.
Some inappropriate names are not allowed thru, there has been very few of those.
When I get back from a weekend of wheeling and there is a 100 names to go thru a name like Boatycall may get deleted along with the rest of the things that sound like porn spam.

For the record,

If a name wont make it on a State of Washington License plate it probably wont be allowed here.

If anyone would like to discuss this policy feel free, we would like to hear the input.

Boatycall is an excellent name, for a boat- rather clever too and I'm sure it would be allowed

Is this a boat site now Seriously though I agree with Dan the name is inappropriate since we all know what it is supposed to mean. This is and should remain a family friendly site.
