PLT has tried to register for the BBS, but hasn't had a reply in a week. His email uses the domain, address@wp.pl

Any help??

I don't recall requiring an email before I could use the bb. I *thought* I picked my own password and was off and running the minute I registered.

Sue,

It's been a few years since I first signed up, so I just went back and checked. The registration form contains the following statement.

"IMPORTANT: We will email your registration password to the email address you provide. Thus, failure to provide your actual email address will mean you can not post any messages or replies on this bulletin board."

I also think I recall it being mentioned that Hotmail (and maybe other similar free email) domain were blocked for registration purposes since there was no accountability. That was an afterthought by LDA (I guess) because my email addy on this BBS is a hotmail account.

I stand corrected then. Good luck. I know Coax has been ill, maybe Sailor can help?

=PLT= entered this e-mail address "pg_i@wp.pl" is this the correct one for him?

I can delete his account and he can reregister with a different e-mail address if he wants.

I don't know the first part of his email address, and I can only ask him again when I see him online. I did see him last night, but he said he hadn't had a reply from LDA on his registration. Would you know if a reply was sent to him? I guess he just needs to know what his password is so he can post on the BBS.

The system is automated, so I've never really paid any attention to it.

If he had a typo in his address or has a spam blocker that wiped the confirmation email.... are problems that come to mind.

And, I haven't received an email to me at my longbow@LDAgames.com address (It picks up other variations on the address too...)

Thanks, coax and Jim. If I see him online (or if anyone else sees him) perhaps suggest that he try to register again. Since it's an automated process, you're probably right about the typo or maybe a spam blocker.

Duh.

I'm pretty sure he reads the BBS.

Hey, PLT! Try to register again. Maybe you typed your email address wrong.
