Membership Referrals / Free Email Policy
Over the years, BRF's no free email policy has prevented a large number of people from becoming members. Even a few of the current crop of members were part of that unfortunate group in their early days.
While the policy has helped keep BRF saner than most places on the net, it has also prevented deserving people from becoming members.
To arrive at a balance between these two extremes it has been decided by the mods that people without a paid/office provided email can become BRF members if any existing BR member vouches for him/her.The Procedure:
The referrer member should contact the Moderator Team about this by sending an email to gentleman.cadet [AT] gmail.com,
specifying the new member's details (Desired Username, and a short intro as to how you know the new member, and the new members email id)
We will be monitoring the IPs and posting patterns of the new members so as to ensure that this process in not misused.
Consider this as a Christmas/New Years gift from the mods !
1) This announcement would be merged/removed in a few days once it is incorporated in the forum guidelines.
2) "offer is not extended to people previously shahid-ized. so no point in re-applying"
