    Didn't Receive Activation E-mail.

    For anyone who didn't receive their activation e-mail, the easiest solution is to change your e-mail address in settings.

    That should spark the mail server back to life and resend the e-mail.

    If they did not get the Email then they will not be able to see that link.
    It is the User CP for anyone looking at this like I was once.

    Also if you only have one Email, then just change your real Email to a fake one. Then change it back to your real one. you should get it after that.

    Picard, your advice helped immensely. I don't know why I didn't notice it before.

    To those who still can't receive it:

    Try a different email address altogether.
    For some reason, Comcast's email will not accept it.

    Gmail does, though.

    If anyone else is registering and they get the email, just post what email service you had when you got it. This way people, like myself a few minutes before, don't start to fret when they need something like sound packs and can't get them.

    So far:
    Comcast: doesn't work. (They are using a new type of email service)
    Gmail: Works.

    I changed my email address, as suggested, to a Hotmail one, since this forum wouldn't take my Sympatico one (I live in Quebec, Canada). For the Sympatico account, which is my main email account, I use Outlook Express. I have never had a problem receiving a confirmation email with this address, and I have no Junk Mail folder, so I don't understand what could be going on. In Hotmail, I did receive it in my Junk Mail folder. I have the activation email, so I entered the activation code in the forum. Then, I tried changing my email address back to my main one, but the forum wouldn't acknowledge me as logged in (even though I was) since I again did not receive the email change confirmation email. However, I would like to have my main address registered with this forum. I was wondering if someone could send me an email change confirmation email manually.

    I have the following problem: I forgot my password, so I used the 'forgot-password'-function and typed in the email adress from my profile(correctly, as I checked several times). I tried it several times, but more than 24 hours later I still haven't receive a mail from this forum. This is a new account, which was no problem to register(the activation mail came half an hour later). But I would like to get my old account back. Shall I wait longer or contact one of the admins?

    Because of this problem, people aren't getting emails about their subscriptions. I'd imagine it's also preventing you from getting an activation email.

    Hi arthurgolden,

    you already know me under the nickname 'Rahir'. We we're in the VG jeopardy on AOL. I guess it's again this weekend? The problem is, I can't check my messages in the moment. The only hope is that I remember my f*cking password...

    Haha. Hey, man. I didn't know it was you.

    I haven't heard from Chaz with specifics, but as far as I know we're still supposed to play on Saturday. No time has been set yet, though. I'll tell Chaz to PM both "Rahir" and "AngryNerd," and if that doesn't get to you we can talk through visitor messages on our profile pages.

    Yeah, I'm kind of incognito through the circumstances... But yes, that's a good idea. This or the other way, we will hear from each other.
