How to register and activate your account

Post by Philosophical Vegan » Mon Nov 12, 2018 2:26 pm

Hi everybody, and welcome to the forum for new members.

We've had problems with people not getting activation emails and the spam filters not working well anymore (spammers just register new domains constantly), so there has been an update in how joining the forum works.

We still have a Q&A with some simple questions on fruits and veggies to catch some spammers, but otherwise once you join your account will now be immediately active. However, the only place you'll be able to post is the new members section and the support section.
Posting in the support section is just for help with the forum, and it won't increment your post count.

To get full access, you'll just need to post an introduction thread (which will give you a post count of 1 once it's approved).
You don't need to tell your life's story if you don't want to, but it'll have to be enough for us to tell you aren't a spammer. If you can't think of anything to post, tell us a bit about why you decided to join. Once you post, a moderator will approve your post and you'll have full access to post wherever you want here in the public forums.

If you're only joining to reply to another thread, you're welcome to say that and mention the name of the thread you're joining to reply to.

Initially you won't be able to post links or use a signature, but when you have a higher post count you'll be able to use those features.

Please don't hesitate to post if you have any trouble with the new system. This shouldn't affect existing users unless they have not yet posted.
