Problems Making An Account

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 5th March 2010, 3:53 pm

It seems some people have had problems making an account here.

http://www.bautforum.com/off-topic-babbling/101363-extrasolar-visions-forum.html
I tried to register yesterday at the Extrasolar Visions forum but I haven't received any activation emails yet... anyone know if it usually takes a long time to get them? Do they need to give them out manually or something?

If you know anything about this, please let me know.

Account verification is now currently automatic in hopes of circumventing the issue.

Just posting to say that I have successfully registered after you tweaked things - thanks! Smile

I will say though that the only way that I found on EVII to contact anybody was to use the "report abuse" function (did that work?). You might want to consider setting up an email address or access point (like the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the BAUTforum pages) if people get into trouble again maybe?

Did not work. Sad

That's a good idea.

Edit:

Implemented. Contact link is now at the bottom.

Edit2:

The report abuse form you filled out was to report an abuse of the forum itself to the server host. For example, if this site were involved in illegal activities. No one here would receive that report.

Cool. I just sent you a test message from the Contact Us link, just to make sure it works.

Hopefully that report abuse thing won't get you into any trouble with the server host (I just pretty much said "help, I can't log in" on it anyway)! It said it went to the admins of the board so I assumed it'd just go to you.

I'm pretty sure the report abuse won't bring any negative action against this forum. "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear."

I did receive the Contact Us message. =)

Well at least we don't have the "no new users" issue that occurred during the decline of EV1...

Indeed. PhpBB1 if I recall.
I can't even access the original forum anymore.

Edit:
E-mail verification re-instated for troubleshooting.
