Hi Folks, It's definitely Good Friday as the Registrations are now OPEN to anyone, so an invitation is no longer required to join the elite GamblingForums.com community. That means everyone now has the opportunity to contribute to our independent, comprehensive, and uncensored community and enhance all gambling-related knowledge to help build the #1 gambling community in the world. The Invite System is still active for those members that have signed up with an invitation. Any member that has been invited will have the special "Web of Trust" flair to denote their direct lineage back to the Founding Members of this community. Those members will be allowed to continue that lineage by inviting other members, thereby expanding the Web of Trust. Members that sign up without an invitation will not be allowed to invite other members and will have stricter criteria compared to Founding Members and Web of Trust members with regards to unlocking their Signature and Private Messaging features to ensure they are fully committed to the community and our vision. Since those members have not been referred to our community by an existing member, they will have to work harder to prove themselves to our community before enjoying some of the perks of membership. Members who sign up with an invitation enjoy more lenient criteria with regards to unlocking certain features of the site, so we encourage Web of Trust members to continue using their invitations to bring new reputable members on board, and those members will also benefit from more lenient criteria and the special flair. We look forward to reading everyone's contributions to the community. Please remember that we hold our community to a higher standard, so our rules will now be strictly enforced to ensure an open and respectful environment where everyone feels free to share their gambling knowledge and opinions. Onwards and upwards!
