Do You Spam / Send Marketing Emails?

No, we only send what users have implicitly requested via their account preferencees.

If I No Longer Wish To Recieve Email From TGPF Should I Mark Them As Spam?

No, please use the information provided on this page to adjust the email we send you. Marking our emails as spam will permentantly prevent email being sent to your registered email account, the forum software will automatically deactivate the account until it is able to send email to your email account. This is to help prevent spam and to ensure you're able to recieve important emails.

If you've marked an email from TGPF as spam by mistake, please unmark it, or even better add us your contacts/whitelist (contact us for details).

I'm Seeing An Error At The Top Of The Page Mentioning Email

As described above you mark our emails as spam the forum software will consider your email invalid and it must be changed. This check is also in place if your email address doesn't exist any longer, this is to ensure any emails we transmit reach their intended audience and protect the privacy of user accounts.
