    Sorry Melf, nevermind that message I sent thru the 'help' option as it appears I can post replies again. Not sure exactly what is going on, but it keeps unchecking the 'remember me' box which for some reason had me logged in but unable to respond to threads (?)

    The user RvR messaged me on another site asking for activation, as his verification email was never sent/never arrived.

    EDIT: Also just heard from user Lycanphoenix, also in need of activation.

    Thank you to Goldenband and the admin who authorized me!

    Reading through this thread I find it interesting that the problem apparently arises from limitations to vbulletin, yet I posted on a vbulletin forum for 8 years and never heard of the problem. Surely there must be some way to have an admin notified when a new user registers. Alternatively it could just be that on the other site users are autoapproved but there are additional anti-spam features in place. I know some sites have picture puzzles you have to solve in order to register. A quick and easy solution could be to have a stickied thread that says something like "If you want your account activated PM X" in all caps with asterisks and whatnot. This thread serves a similar purpose but there is no guarantee new users will happen upon it. If I hadn't been reading another forum where Golden happened to mention specifically that he posts here I probably would have just given up. But anyways, great to be part of this community now!

    ^Glad to help! And yes, sadly, Sega-16 is becoming infamous for the difficulties involved in registration/account approval here. Some sort of creative solution would be great, or a consultation from some expert to pin down why other vBulletin sites are more user-friendly without getting overrun by spam.

    Meanwhile, user DAGarden has also PMed me asking for activation.

    Thank you for helping me finally get activated. That was a very long and stressful process... Needs lots of improvement, I must say.

    I will now proceed to the subforums where I have been itching to provide feedback for quite a while.

    Thanks for the help, goldenband, and the activation. Much appreciated. I wasn't too sure who to contact, but I saw this thread, and didn't know what else to try.

    Still, now that that's out of the way, I shall proceed to try and contribute to discussion where possible.
