No registration email/can't register.

#1 Postby Guest » Sat Aug 31, 2013 12:38 pm

Sorry to bother you guys, but I've been trying to register for at least a week now. I haven't received the registration email, and I can't find a way to "contact an administrator." I'm hoping that this will get through and somebody can help.

My username is/will be (hopefully) "Craters."

Thanks!

I am not an admin, but I will try to help...Did you check to see if your registration email went to your spam folder? :D

Hi, Nikki --

Yep, I did. Nothing there and nothing in my junk folder, either. (Seems that they're two different folders with Comcast.)

And thank you for replying so fast! Yours was the first real-life indication that I'm not hallucinating about the site!!

I've been having the same problem, in that I haven't received my activation email for the two months since I technically registered. (Is this what I get for picking the username "404UserNotFound"?) And no, it's not in the junk folder.

And now it has been three months, and I have noticed at least one user has been able to register between my last post and this one. (Although I haven't tried resending the activation email in a while.)

It is not a screen name we will allow on this site. Please choose another one if you want to register.

I had received no indication of that. I'll try again with a new username.

It says that the email address is already in use. If the account with the previous username cannot be activated, delete it.

That would be hairball@ramblemuse.com, and I attempted to sign up with the username "404UserNotFound", sans quotes of course. The signup went through OK, except for the fact that I never got my activation email.

(I'm thinking about signing up with a name like ExistenceDenied, in a little reference to this event.)

Four months in, and I still don't know exactly what the situation is. I have a really good question, too. :(

I have not seen that one come through yet. Send a new request and post here what it is(email and user name). If it passes our "tests" it will be granted.

Same email as above, new attempted username is "ExistenceDenied" (without the quotes), as a bit of a reference to this event.

Not sure what you are doing but the latest batch of requests shows 404UserNotFound as registered with your email, so I activated it. You can use that account to post.

Yay! It works now!
