It's more than likely that you've just accidentally tripped one of the site's automatic spam filters. Send an email to admin@amibay.com and we'll look into it for you.

Amibay still have to rewrite that message for users with zero posts.

Most of times the site's security system inst-a-ban people which uses same IP as other people and from some locations and serves, alongside other methods.

I tried signing up toAmibay only to fnd every attempt was rejected as I was called a spammer.

I tried emailing the admin. They did reply asking for some info to get the account set up which I promptly sent back.

Heard nothing.

I really can't be arsed with a site that doesn't want people to sign up and stay. I can understand wanting to stop spam but it's like copy protection. It gets to a point where it ruins the enjoyment of the user and this is one pissed user.

Amibay does have some ridiculous rules some times, and just doing an honest mistake trips some mod's "bad cop" alter ego for no good reason. People are human...

I do agree EAB is the best Amiga site in the whole universe

I have to say I prefer amibay, they have a nice bunch of people, lot of temptations and not to mention tapatalk-support. However EAB is also nice, starting to be a bit more active but still wishing for that tapatalk support.

Hello

Hi Guys
Can I ask what tapatalk is?

I have been on Amibay for quite awhile but got into trouble over a MAC conversation so decided to leave. I am Hoping EAB is less ruled by MAC's and more about the Miggy which from the little I have seen it is.

I have been over here a few times to look around my loves at the mo are the Sam 440 and my 030 A1200 but I am getting some really good game time on my I5 PC with windows 7. Mind you tried Ubuntu and the New Steam app and of course if has failed, I only say of course cos i wanted to try it LOL.


Al

As for the guys who get bans just email as Fitzsteve said, he is in the know and is a great guy to get on with he has some youtube vids as do some of the other guys.

Tapatalk is a mobile client to access various forums. Fast, easy and frankly a better experience than the individual forum softwares allow for. One lucky day this forum will even support it.

Amibay

I have tried to join Amiga.org several times and tripped the spam filter also. Perhaps the spam filter is a little too sensitive?

Er, those are ridiculous, hard to figure out where in the fornicate they came up with rules ALL the time. Amiga.org is more relaxed as is EAB. ClassicAmiga.com is run by the same mean, self-centered and disagreeable persons at Amibay.

EAB is really great because they have The Zone!
