View Full Version : Debian Forums access

Maybe a bit off topic but...

A week or 2 ago I started a Debian install on a Sparc 10 ultra, and found a link on google that led me to Debian Forums (http://forums.debian.net/). I decided to join so I could post there. I did not get the usual email to use to complete the registration process. In the forum FAQ it's mentioned that if you are having problems with your user account, you should contact a forum administrator. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that you can do that if you're not logged in! If I attempt to log-in, I get the message that my account is inactive.

Sooo, have I messed up something, or is the Debian forums no longer accepting new members, or...?

I'm a member, and I haven't heard anything like them not accepting new members or anything. Is there a way you can get it to resend your confirmation email or something? I really have no idea...

I just now attempted to log in(failed) and clicked "forgot password, I got the following message:

Sorry, but your password cannot be retrieved because your account is currently inactive. Please contact the forum administrator for more information.


EDIT: O.K., I just searched the Debian forum for the term "forum administrator" and found a thread (http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?t=252) listing a link for an admin. ;)
