I know at least one or two of you are having trouble getting into your accounts since the forum upgrade - unfortunately the activation code thing is something the forum hosts introduced and is totally out of my control
If you don't seem to be getting the activation code, check your spam filter settings on your e-mail (remember some e-mail providers automatically add a spam filter, even if you haven't set one up yourself) - if you have a filter that puts suspected spam in a separate folder, then look through that folder to see if your activation code is there. If your filters just delete spam altogether, then try turning them off for a little while and see if that helps. If all else fails, you can always make a new e-mail account with Hotmail or someone similar, just to get the code, though that is obviously a last resort.
When I looked at my profile they had the hotmail address shown... so what did I do... changed it back to aol... what happened then...... they would send a new authorisation code to aol the one I can never receive their email from.. and my password is now invalid so I can't change it back again... Friday 13th was yesterday or so I thought... Guess I have to be content with racemania2 now
Ouch, that's a pain! I can change the e-mail address back on your main account if you like, I've got the power to do that. The idea of an authorisation code is great for security, but becomes a bit useless when e-mail security won't let it through... I hope not too many other people have been caught by this
GR, I'm in a similar bind, I want communications to go to my works email but at home I have to use my hotmail account. I get my authorisation code but can't change back to my works account as the site is blocked at work.
PS since the upgrade I can't get the club logo in the banner/header
Argh... sorry about all the e-mail problems everyone, it's totally out of my control unfortunately Too many security systems all clashing with each other...
I know about the missing logo by the way, just haven't got around to fixing it because the stupid forum demands I fill in some other options on the same page when I try to put the logo back on, and I don't know what I want to do with the others yet - I'll try and sort it soon
Pardon the expression but as you can see I'm fixed now.
Proboards refused my emails on various providers returned for security reasons! However I did get an email to hotmail telling me my new password & authorisation code which .... touch wood.... is working. Hopefully everyone having problems will gleam something from all the "Sorry" stories. One good thing about the upgrade is the spell check which if I rember to use it may correct my errors... now if only there was a button in my car to correct wrong lines on track.... Ali
Bye the way GR can you delete racemania2 entry now?
Hi everyone, Hurray got back on here at last, took a while because Hotmail refused to recognise my Postcode for some reason, tried everything on AOL including turning all the spam filters etc. off but it didn't make any difference.
Hi GR you can remove the 666ken ID I created at one point to try getting back on, the Hotmail remedy seems to work fine, I also tried Yahoo for an Email account but for some reason when I clicked on the Yahoo UK option for the Homepage it booted back to the start again.
