BXworld

Post by tom »

A French website with a lot of stuff on it. But I have spent three days being unable to post on their forum, despite following their procedures, so I'll give them a miss.

I came across this site some time ago, and likewise, they didn't seem to want me as a member so I gave up. Bl**dy frogs!!

Probably a good thing in retrospect. I spend far too much time sat behind this $o&&ing computer as it is!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Wasn't that site Hans Taq's?

If so, I think you'll find he "deactivated" it a couple of years ago.

It looks like they want you introduce yourself before your account is validated, your location, BX holding etc. Perhaps it's an anti spam measure, or maybe it's just the way they do things. Good luck !

I did. I posted successfully in the introduction section but not in the section for English speakers, so they don't know about us.

There is a reply to your post in the "Validation de l'inscription au forum" section which says "Hello and welcome, could you please introduce yourself ? (the role of this section) in order to proceed with the validation of your account."

Thank you. I had done so several times already so it is nice to get a response from them at last.

Yes, it's definitely a Troll-trap. We might end up with something like it on here if the spam situation gets any worse. It's not really a bad idea, the average Troll wouldn't know the magic words "BX19GTi", "BX16TRS", etc.

Well, I have tried it and sent greetings from the club. As for the troll trap, if it works, let's have one. I realise it means more work for the modulat, um Modifi,er, blokes who run the site, but it may save some in the long run.
