Joined several weeks ago - never received the confirmation email (and I checked every spam folder - it just never came).

Have PMed both Mods and Admins here and got no reply. Even PMed one of the Mods over on another forum when he is very active - no replies at all.

Having just joined the ranks of Martin shooters (2008 S4), I'd kinda like to join in here, but all attempts to reply to posts have been rejected. :confused:

Yeah it is right that some weeks ago no acitvation mails were sent. Maybe it is still the cases until now. Further you will not find an active mod or admin over here as it is not necessary. Our community is not that big and you wont find spam here. If you tried to pm Joelc on Archerytalk.. He does not read his pms i believe. At least he said he wont some time ago in his account details.

Haven't tried Joel on AT yet - he doesn't accept PMs here.

Sent PUG a PM here and on AT, and MikeD a PM here - haven't heard back from any of the 3 PMs.

Don't give up, call Martin Archer at 1-800-541-8902
Explain your problem - that's what I did and they fixed it when I was on the phone with them - I thought that was pretty good service.

Yeah... That happens form time to time. Just report it and it will be removed in time... There are not many things you can do again spambots/adbots beside a captcha for each login.

I started reporting some of them last night, but this really needs to be a "group" effort. With the number of spam in there and the fact that you must wait 60 seconds between each report, it would take a couple of hours. :)

Here you go A4G - here's the "sub" forum I was speaking of.

Thanks Kurt - now an "advanced" copy of the new catalog would be nice compensation. :p

No wait - I just bought a new bow - don't tempt me with more. :D

Now it seems every time I post a message or start a thread I get spam Private Messages through this forum. Don't you have any filters at all? I am a member of 5 or 6 different forums some wit hthousands of posts and never get crap like this. Sounds like you need to find a new webmaster and service provider.

We're at the bottom of the pack. I'll see what I can do about cleaning some of the spammers out. PM me user names of any you get.
