They haven't been able to get rid of me  >:D
You might have to reconfirm your signup data, but it should be no big deal...
<--- is there any mechanism in place to deal with a non- productive, antagonistic, former non- member such as this?

Hi Kevin,
Welcome to the forum.
I'm not an admistrator, but as far as I know, you can stay at forum level indefinitely.
Of course, we'd love for you to become a full member, which will give you access to many tech articles, and our gratitude :)   but it's not required. Glad you're here. :great:
Although you have to be full member for access to tech articles, no one ever decides to help or not based on your membership level... access to all the guys with really good knowledge is always available.
I've only had my Connie for just over 5 years, but there are guys that have had one (or more) for a loooong time and are always happy to share what they've learned.
Welcome aboard!
Jorge

Dave,
We actually just started a petition, and it's gaining signatures fast... so there is hope :D

 It's telling me to update my profile. But I have already put in all required fields. Not sure what it what's from me now.

I believe you have to update your profile over on the main site (www.cog-online.org) not here in the forum.
Hopefully someone with actual knowledge will stop by and give you something other than my uneducated guesses  :-[

To piggyback on this...
Are the article links working?  I read there were issues.

keeping the user profile up to date with accurate name address phone email is required per the info in the link that I believe is provided in the warning email.

The info in the post liked to explains how to update the profile correctly.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Was the system fixed so that profiles can be edited?  I know when I joined it wasn't working.

Got a message saying I would deleted after ten days. So I can't stay as a guest here?

It's a small price to pay for info and to meet other friendly riders.  You can re-coup the membership fee by using specials from COG vendors.
