Issues with registering, Post your username here...

29 Oct 2014, 12:20

For those of you who do not get an activation email or something similar...
Post your username here, so that they can be activated manually.
It is a current forum issue that we are having. You may read about it here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4914#p29173

This only temporary, until I can find a way to fix this...
Regards

Hello -- My name is Bill Collins, I was a long timer "browser" of the autohotkey.com forum, and after a long time away, got back into coding {albeit very limited, basic coding!) a bit.

I saw this site, along with what had happened, so I thought I would register over here, and that is the reason for my post.

When I tried to register, I was told my username was TOO SHORT. Well, I tried colli020, [colli020], BillC, and - I think - Bill_C.

Each time I was told they were too short.

Of note, I did not enter anything into facebook or Google+, simply because I do not believe in them.

If possible, I would be happy with BillC (or Bill_C) as a username (assuming the meet the criteria), otherwise either colli020 or [colli020] would work. As you can probably tell, my first name is Bill, and the last name is Collins. My email address is ####@####.com. As far as a password, you can make one up and I will change it from my profile.

I have some actual questions, too, but they can wait till I'm registered. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bill

Thanks for the really quick response! Sorry to say, however, that the board considers me as INACTIVE. I just used the credentials you sent me but there wasn't an activation link, just my username, email, and password.

When I login from the forum page I get the inactive error, asking me to activate my account or to contact a board admin. :(

Sorry for the hassle, and thanks!

Spambots like to collect email addresses posted in forums. So it would probably be a good idea to delete them when they are not needed anymore.

Hi guys,

I tried to register today but didn't have much luck with the email confirmation. I don't feel like exposing my main email address in the open. Please contact me at ########@####mail.com and I'll send over the email address I have registered with. Thanks a lot!
