I asked to have access to update the site (PHPBB wise) and stop the spam. I asked this many many many many many many many many times. I'm not in the field of just deleting spam the most inefficient way possible. PS: ever since you put back the admin approval status yesterday I have literally had over 60 emails about registration. I don't know what else you want from a volunteer. At the same time I wanted to update the "where to ride" part so it was more accurate. To this day that's what I want to do. I'm sorry that you thought my reaction, which was more of a de-action actually, was immature. You've got a valid point I'll give you that, but like I talked to you earlier about, this was going to happen at some point. I just wanted others to give you and Brandon a little push to do something about it. Of course my bias is that I
want to fix it, but if you want to fix it yourself you are more then welcome to...it's your site.

How many times do you end up at the beach with different people? I'll start listing what I've heard over the years: Upload photos/videos, get rid of the ARC kites thing, tapatalk, Twitter (yuck ,but it's a request), correct time on the forum, contact page to work (that's a big one with newbies), working front page links, Leno off the front page (from Leno himself haha), Off da-lip to work (didn't even know this existed on the site), Where to ride (this is a HUGE request, by several people even talking on this topic). I could keep going, this site is broken.

Here's what I think quoting you. "A childish and immature reaction." "This is not the way to do things"
Frank has been nothing but good on this site, and him pointing out that he can build sites too, must have hit a nerve with you. I think your reaction was immature. He said NOTHING false or mean.

These guys drove miles and miles, sucked up entire weekends, volunteered and organized beach cleanups, scouted sites endlessly, organized world-wide petitions to save kiting in Chicago (yes WORLDWIDE) flooding politician offices with letters and emails from everywhere, mapped, compiled info and put it here in an organized fashion for all to have and save kiting.
WHAT.......DOES THAT.........HAVE TO DO .........WITH ANYTHING! I'm just shaking my head with my jaw dropped. Seriously,WTF is going on with that. This is just a plea for emotions and it's very petty and small on your part. Yes, that's rude, but you are being ridiculous to bring that up.
Did anyone bring up that we don't approve of this or something? Did we not applaud you enough for this? How does this apply to spam.....seriously how?
Urban can tell you we are working together with the city now and I'm also working with Surfrider to get more access and river SUPing, new beaches, and the new beach being built on Northerly island........yet I would not think about bringing this up here......because it has nothing to do with spam.
So I guess my plea is this (since the beginning by the way) Can you please fix the spam issue, because my effort and patience has worn thin. It's an easy fix and we have people here willing to help. If you don't want to "add on' or change the site you don't have to, that was a side topic.
I'll be here for the community.
