We notice that many are not completing the final step of registration on the new forum. We created a post in that regard over there and I am repeating it here for maximum visibility:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++
We notice that there are many who have not confirmed their activation and are wondering why they can't post, edit their profiles, see pictures, etc. If that is you, here is the reason.

We notice that there are many who have not confirmed their activation and are wondering why they can't post, edit their profiles, see pictures, etc. If that is you, here is probably the reason.

-You agree to the conditions
-You fill out the form.
-You get your activation link email
-You click the activation link [most problems are starting here or in the next point.]
-Your account goes in the approval queue.
-A moderator approves your account and it becomes active.
-You get an second email informing you that you are accepted.
-You begin posting.

After you filled out the forum you would have seen this:

You are not finished! You have one final step

Check your email now. You will receive an email with the subject line Action Required to Activate Membership for DetroitYES Forums. You MUST follow the link in that email before you can post on these forums. Until you do that, you will be told that you do not have permission to post. NOTE: If you don't get the email be sure to check any spam or junk mail folders to make sure it was not moved there. This has happened to several others.

STEP FOUR: Await Moderator Approval.

Your registration will be reviewed by one of our moderators and your account will usually be approved in a hour or two but allow up to 24 hours.

You will receive an automated email notice once a moderator has approved your account with the subject line Account Validated at DetroitYES forums! Once that is received you will be able to immediately post, edit your profile and do all the other fun stuff.

[I would add to the above^ that if you do not find the email to be sure to check any junk mail or spam folders to make sure it the email did not land in one of those.

Once again!

Your registration will be reviewed by one of our moderators and your account will usually be approved in a hour or two but allow up to 24 hours.

You will receive an automated email notice with the subject line Account Validated at DetroitYES forums! once a moderator has approved your account.

Lowell, I registered on the new site yesterday evening but haven't gotten the follow up e-mail to go further. My friends tell me my personal info is now out there for all to see & I can't get in to hide it. Not good.

There is an activation step, and then after the activation step the users have to wait for another activation?

Also, will there be avatars on this site?

Re-registered as Reality_check and received insta-confirm to click.

All is well in Lowellworld.

Glad to be inside the new gate . . . across the moat . . . past the velvet rope . . . o'er the ramparts . . . on the Other Side . . . through the portal . . . beyond the barricade.

See y'all -- or most y'all -- there tomorrow.

Sent you an email in that regard to.

With the open registration, somebody can assume a trusted Username, want to be your friend, and get personal info on you. Look what happened to Ccbatson a few months ago.

Ravine, I was wondering where you've been. I'm pissed too and i wish we would have known that our personal info. would be plastered all over the place. I've been told to go into your "cp" at the top blue bar then go to the privacy settings and check off either "friends" or "contacts". When i click on my "see what everyone else sees" it shows everything. i guess theres some finishing up to do. I was able to delete a few things but as far as my name, no can do!

I registered a day or two ago, but still don't see an email in my inbox.

Making me saaaad.

I did a gmail search for spam and everything. Nothing from Detroit Yes. I was able to request a password change though, and that came immediately and I saw it in my inbox... But i'm still not admitted as an actual user...

Even though it says that, I guess it is not true. I had someone check mine after I followed the steps to hide the profile and they couldn't see anything.

I tried to create a last minute fairwell to the old board thread, but creating new threads seems to be disabled. Good bye my fair feathered discussion board. How I shall miss thy simpleness. I shall yearn for my post count, which fell just shy of 1000. In this time of darkness, I shall push forward toward the new light whilst holding fond the memory of you, dear discussion Board.

The Parting Glass:

Of all the money that ere I had, I spent it in good company.
And of all the harm that ere I've done, alas was done to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit, to memory now I cannot recall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Of all the comrades that ere I had, they're sorry for my going away,
And of all the sweethearts that ere I had , they wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise while you should not,
I will gently rise and I'll softly call, "Goodnight and joy be with you all!"

Oh, if I had money enough to spend and leisure time to sit awhile
There is a fair maid in this town that sorely has my heart beguiled
Her rosey cheeks and ruby lips, she alone has my heart in thrall.
So fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all.
