AWAITING MEMBERSHIP ACTIVATION OR ACCIDENTALLY BANNED?-----PLEASE READ-----------
Sorry for putting this in here but I thought it was the most likely place for most people to see it, and it seems that some may still not be reading the "sticky notes" posted at the top of the major forums.-----
If you are waiting to have you membership at Zone Five activated or if you have found your account has been banned accidentally;-----
We have a problem with large numbers of spammers trying to access the site using bogus registrations, and we are taking measures to try and ensure that only valid members are allowed access.-----
In order to help us with this, it would be greatly appreciated if you could include some relevant information, of your own choice, in the personal details section of your profile. This will help us confirm and activate your membership as soon as possible.-----You can delete it as soon as we have activated your membership if you have any privacy concerns. We are only interested in trying to differentiate legitimate members from possible spammers/ bogus accounts. We're not asking for anything you are not comfortable to provide, or anything particularly sensitive. There must be something simple that you can add that would just illustrate that you are a genuine member and not a spammer? We can't say what to add because the spammers could just read this and find another way through. It's not so much about what you add or about "vetting" members (We probably spend less than a second looking at it), but purely an effort to keep out unwanted spammers. Nothing else.-----
This request has been mentioned in the main forums as well.
And you can see some of the reasons why we are taking these measures in this thread.
If, after a certain time, you still haven't added any info, your account may be deleted as a suspected spammer.-----
We are very sorry for the inconvenience and delays but we hope that it helps make for a better time for those who use the forums legitimately.-----
Thank you very much for your help in this matter.-----
If you are unsure of how to add the information or wish to contact me directly about this, please use Zone5email(at)googlemail(dot)com -----

Brian, I was on USS JFK in Apr 2002 and took a lot of pictures of Pukin Dog Tomcats. This was post - Op ANACONDA and the Dogs did not put mission markings on their jets. Ollie Murray (Pukin Dog CO) told me they were to much work. I know Scott has some of the pictures... He has a lot of my pictures right now. I have some older VFA-143 pictures I think I may have sent to you earlier. Let me know if you need some help... I was on USS JFK for a week and took pics of almost all of their jets during the week. Also did VF-11 Red Rippers at the same time. These pictures are what Gaston Burnal at Aeromaster used to do his decal sheets back a couple of years ago.
Brian, received your package over the weekend. Decals are gorgious! Thanks again for sending them to me as I have wanted to do a VF-154 F-14A for a long time. I was flying in my tanker less than 50 miles from the BlackKnight that went down in An Bar province. Great story I will have to tell you some time. Radio chatter was very interesting and Reserve KC-10 from Travis AFB were real heros that night. Boom Operator saw them punch out!
Thanks again for the three decal sheets... I really appreciate you sending them to me.
Dont know if you saw it yet but she is done and in the critique section, loved the decals bro now if you can do them in 32nd scale!! I would love to have just the stencils and paint the stripes myself as a thought Thanks bro if you want me to do any other jet let me know would love to help you out, thanks Erick
Brian, Scott has the Tomcat photos and I don't know what arrangements the both of you made. You can have whatever you want, just send me a sheet or two when you are done. I have a bunch of stuff from Oceana as I lived ten minutes from the base for 3 years. email@example.com or 505-903-9742 is the best way to get a hold of me.
