I've just had the pleasure of submitting the names of 5 members for upgrading to Barfly status, making them full members of the Saloon with full access to about every place members can possibly go around here. The Five don't even know it yet.
Unfortunately, with all future upgrades, we will be raising the criteria to a level considerably higher than they have been in the past. It will now take a lot more time and a number more posts than was required before.
I am sorry that these measures are necessary, but we feel that they are needed in order to improve security. Please be patient and keep posting...we'll let you know when the time comes.
