(The Registration Function is turned On and Off periodically so I can catch up on New Registrations and review for Spam, Trolls, etc. That status can be found here: Member Registration Schedule
Upland Journal is funded and thus kept on the internet via a Donation Structure. Donating Members are placed in the 2021 CONTRIBUTING MEMBER GROUP with enhanced Board and Member Privileges. Full info here: Member Groups-Donations-Privileges
If Registering to become an Upland Journal Member PLEASE add enough information in the required Interest Field that indicates you are a human, and interested in Upland bird hunting, and are not a Spam or a Troll. Using single or just a couple words like Hunt, Birds, Shotguns, Grouse, etc., will result in NOT being Authorized. Spammers and Spam Bots and Trolls tag onto those words when they try and Register. Once Authorized you can edit that info in your Profile. I don't remove suspect Registrations, but when and if contacted by the Registrant via the Board Contact email, and confirming an earnest interest in Upland Journal, I can then Authorize. Board and Member security is my top Priority.
Also, PLEASE do not use a business name (Kennel, Training, Guiding/Outfitter, etc.) as a User Name. Marketing and Advertising by Members is not allowed on any of the Forums. The exception is for UJ Ad Sponsor Members and Swap & Trade Forum where Donating/Contributing Members can place “Ad Topics”.
Once registered and if there are no spam or troll indications, you will be authorized within a few days
I STRONGLY suggest New Registrants read the Board Guidelines linked below. Many may have "lurked" for awhile and understand the "culture" at UJ, and others may have stumbled upon this Discussion Community and NEED to read the Guidelines. These Rules are strictly enforced.
Thank you Guests and Visitors for utilizing Upland Journal as a resource and entertainment in the past, and your interest in becoming a Registered Member to the Upland Journal Board.
