    If you can post, you are activated.

    Re: never got activation email

    Hmm.. I assumed i was only allowed to post in the Resolution Center because, otherwise, how could there be any help for someone who couldn't get their account activated...

    Under "User CP" -> "Edit Your Details" and "Edit Options" I get:

    StupidFatHobbit, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    1. Your user account has less than 50 posts.
    2. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    3. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    So I just assumed the last case was the reason. Do I really need 50 posts to edit my own details?

    David.

    Yes. It was done to help combat spam.

    Wow. Things things you don't realize if you have to run a forum... Makes perfect sense, though.

    Sorry,

    David.
