Is there a problem with new people signing up to the forums?

Postby Hank Scorpio » Wed May 30, 2007 2:07 am

A guy called 'Disco Duck' was just spectating a game of mine, and said he never gets the confirmation emails to sign up, so he's unable to post.

Any ideas? Just thought I'd help him out.

He should check his spam bin. Failing that, have him e-mail me on ohmygodicantregisterontheivforums@neothermic.com with the e-mail address he used to sign up (plus his nickname used), and I'll activate him manually.

NeoThermic's got a trunk port pointed at the heavens just for that purpose.

I had the same problem trying to get a confirmation email for weeks now, and I sent emails to ever introversion related email address I could find but got no response.... my regular email was yahoo and maybe it got filtered out by spam blockers.

I finally had to use an alternate email system and signed up again and voila, got the confirmation email within a minute.

When the forums were moved, the GD libs were not there for a day or two. This has since been fixed, and I just double checked. The image is clearly there.

Yeah I had this problem too, but after days I finally had the idea today to check my junk folder, and that's where I found my confirmation email. Emailed IV with no response as well..
Confusing, because my junk filter is generally pretty accurate as to what 'junk' is and what it isn't.
