Hello,

That's the third time I register on SyntaxBomb, each time I register the next day my account is deleted ?!!
Is there a particular reason ? I don't understand... IP location change ?
Thanks

Eric

What happens is we get a lot of signups a day which are spammers. So regularly I purge users with zero posts as usually genuine members sign up and then post, even if to say hi. A lot of spammers also use free email services and when I see yours was *@free.fr I get over excited and click on delete as no posts were made.

Glad you have posted and your account is now active, welcome onboard :)

Until the next time...

I'm not a spammer just a crazy game coder who wants to enter the "9th code a game compo"  :P

Although, I can't complain. I got a prize on my first go even though I didn't win it :-)
