All new registrations will be subject to approval by an administrator. Registration applications will be periodically reviewed between the hours of 9am and 10pm EDT. If you register after 10pm, your application may not be reviewed until the following day. For most, approval will be routine. I realize this delay is an inconvenience, but we've had too many problems with users with multiple accounts, particularly when used for spamming or circumventing bans. So please be patient while you wait for your account to be activated.
Registered users should take the time to check that the email address they registered under is the same as the email address they are currently using. Your registration email address can be checked and changed if necessary under USERCP--->Profile. If you forget/lose your password, the board utility for that isn't going to help you by sending a new password to an email address you no longer use.
Please make sure to check your spam/junk mail box if you have a filter enabled. Yahoo and Hotmail will treat automated emails from the boards as spam if filtering is enabled. I'm sure quite a few others do as well. We are getting a lot of emails from users claiming they never received an email to activate their account because it's in their spam filter. Thanks.
