    Free annonymous e-mail provider accounts like Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo are not allowed because there have been instances in the past where trolls sign up for an account and get banned and then sign up again and again and continue to troll. I guess they figure that if you pay for an ISP and use an account from said ISP, you may be less likely to spam or troll, not to mention it can be tracked better should the need arise for trollish or other miscreant behvior. Policies today are a reflection of thing from the past, it's not you.

    Once registered,you may change the e-mail account information in your profile and choose to disply (or not) said contact information if you wish.

    Now I see, said the blind man. I did not know this, but I can understand.

    "ctkenc is in the same block as coop."

    Just saw this update guys.

    Another thing you may or may not have noticed. There is no advertising income funding the site there. The site is paid for privately and run/managed by the Mods and Admins on their own time. The staff is small and will remain so for reasons of their own choosing. Disagreements are allowed as long as you can articulate your position and not just say "yeah" or other such. If it comes to pass that for whatever reason you get a warning from a Mod, please heed said warning. If you question said warning, contact that mod through the "Office" section and don't challenge the warning openly in the thread that drew it. Things will not bode well for you as there is little tolerance for miscreant behavior. If you have a question, just ask.

    There are many things that may flag your registration. E-mail ISP being only one. Similarity with or to a particular IP Address that has been flagged or blocked by a banned member could be others. I do not know what the reason behind the delay is in your case as I do not nor will not speak on the Mods/Admins behalf - they can handle themselve and their business well enough. Just sayin' that there may be a reason and they may or may not divulge what it is/was.

    Growler,
    thanks for your help ... I'm on-line there now. Thanks again.

    Cannot get Activation

    I am also having issues getting approved on the sig forum. I filled out the form over three weeks ago and still no activation. The webmaster email address is invalid, so there is no way to get in touch with them. It is very frusterating. The username I am attempting to get approved is jshortsl

    Any help would br greatly appreciated!

    Unhappy re: "sig forum majic"

    I noticed on a previous thread that people were having a hard time becoming members of that forum. I am having the same frustrating problem. I really want to join the discussions with my fellow sig owners on that forum but for some unknown reason cannot.
    I keep getting the awaiting approval email when signing in . Can someone on the site please help me.. Thanks, Mike R.
    I will be using screen name of arizslim..

    Yeah, not sure what the deal is. I even tried a work e-mail account thinking something went wrong. I've e-mailed them to no avail. Poorly run in my opinion.

    This is not the "help" forum for signing up at other forums, nor is it proper etiquette to criticize administration of other forums.
