I have just created an account (on ubuntuforums) but received an error when doing so. I then tried registering again with the same info but realized that the account was in fact created. However I cannot seem to be able to post anywhere (except here) and have not received an activation e-mail.
Re: Activation email
Sorry about that. As you've probably gathered, there's currently a server issue which is affecting a lot of things. Canonical sysadmins are working on it at the moment. I've managed to activate your account, or at least I hope I have - the two web servers are not syncing. Post back if you find you cannot post elsewhere.
If it appears that you can post, but it doesn't appear when you are taken back to the thread, try refreshing the page a couple of times. It might appear on one server but not the other.
