It's hardly surprising as the registration details have been changed. Before you needed a "paid for" email account, I don't think you need that anymore, release the TROLLS
We quietly dropped that condition aaaages ago, as we now have other means at our disposal of dealing with trolls that are less likely to deter genuine new members from joining up on here.
Plus, we've been proactively advertising the existence of TotalRL.com in League Express and Rugby League World since the site was relaunched in mid-October, which will hopefully have helped raise awareness and attracted a few new members to come on board. The World Cup is also generating a ton of extra interest in the game and a LOT of extra traffic on here, which just goes to show the power and importance of international Rugby League.
To all our new members so far, welcome aboard. Tell your friends to join too, the more the merrier!
For the record, we're also pretty sanguine about people who have previously been banned on here from rejoining, so long as they make a concerted effort to abide by the rules when they come back. Quite a few have done just that. We like to give just about everyone a fair second chance, but we're also quite adept at spotting and despatching those who come back on here and just want to cause more trouble.
