WTF?

Well sometimes Phorum fails to send that confirmation email. Possible problems are: you screwed up your email and someone in BFE is wondering which asshole friend tried to sign them up for this forum; it went to your junk mail folder; the moderators looked at your email and found out you're a spammer or parentroll; some email services that are flat out throw away are banned, some email services like aol, yahoo etc have trouble receiving confirmations and nuke them, .

So WTF do I do?

If you're a parentroll go away, if you're using one the throwaway services use a real email, if you're using one of the problem services check your junk mail. If it just didn't come try again. Some folks take two or three tries.

so you registered, got your confirmation, confirmed and then you got nuked.

wtf?

What happened?

We found out you're a breeder or a spammer. Or everything about your login and email screamed Breeder or Spammer!

Want to avoid this? Post in the intro thread. If something seems to be a breeder or spammer it goes before it gets a chance to wreak havoc.

Bumping for:

some email services that are flat out throw away are banned,


If you have trouble with your email it may be you have a disposable email that has been eliminated. If you were already registered change your email. If you weren't you may not be able to register. Trolls and parents use those type e mails.

So you registered, didn't get a confirmation. Check your junk mail box, it might be there.

Because the board has been under a spam bot attack since September all registrations now require Moderator approval.

Since mods aren't on 24/7 duty it may result in delays.

Also, all registrants are being vetted much more thoroughly. So if you are a human and your registration was rejected these could be the reasons:

1) we found out you're a breeder or board troll.
2) Your email or user name looks like a spammer. user name bill1234 email bill1234@whatevermail.com
bill1234 weoxdkeu@whatevermail.com
3) You used a throwaway email account.
4) Your email. user name or IP popped up on a spam blacklist.

Bump and protip:


You don't need some super radical I'm more childfree than you are user name. It makes you look like a troll and most likely will get you denied.
