Folks, if you are signing up, I have two rules I need you to abide by.
1) Create an account using a realistic user name. If it looks like a bot, it's likely going to be treated as a bot.
2) I routinely double check new accounts. If your IP address looks out of place, I'm not shy about deleting the account. Unless you are trying to join from a server in mainland China or central Africa when you live in Calgary, all should be well.
