ERROR - forum registration problems
« on: 28 November 2016, 18:42:40 »
I have recently encountered a couple people who tried registering for the forum: "I got the first email from them showing my registration. There was no second email, and when I attempt to login it's saying my account still requires admin approval."

I have looked for an email address they could use to contact someone associated with the website but have been unable to find any. (None at all for site maintenance, and no usable ones for the Admins.)

What address should I pass along, or how otherwise should I assist these would-be forum members?

PM one of the admins, JadeHellbringer and God and Davion, or myself. Let us know the registered forum name, and ideally the email address, for these folks.

There can be issues if the new member shares an IP range with a known spam source - but we can sort that out with the above information to hand. In this world of DNS, that's all too easy sometime - doesn't mean anything bad, just the forum trying to protect itself.

Cheers,

Worktroll, Ombudsman.
