    Signed up, can't post

    A friend of mine signed up here last night, but never received the e-mail to complete the process. She also has not received a reply to an e-mail she sent asking what the problem was. Is there a problem, or is this long wait normal? Thanks.

    Using this -----> because I like it.

    The process is more or less automated, so it shouldn't take long. Has she checked her spam file, filters sometimes waylay that sort of thing.

    Yeah, I assumed it was automated and she should have received the e-mail right away. I told her to check her spam filter, so we'll see. Thanks!

    PM her chosen username (or, write it in the open in this thread), and we can check it.

    Tell your friend she'll have to be patient. The board's been emailing very slowly for the past few months for some reason. Fraser had been checking it out and thinks it's something to do with the cloud we're on.

    Might take another day or two to get the email.

    I believe she is using LadyShea, have not heard back from her on that yet.

    As to the spam file thing, she said, "of course I checked my spam file, do you think I am stupid?"

    Oh, ok, well, she just wanted to post a question on behalf of someone, so if there is going to be this delay maybe I'll just do it instead.

    ETA: Yes, her user name is LadyShea.

    Status shows as awaiting email confirmation - so it seems the board software does think it has sent the email.

    If you PM me her email address, I can check that that is the one she used (e.g. no typo, thus mail going nowhere).

    OK, thanks. Well rather than wait I will just post the question on her behalf, in a new thread.

    Using my almost godlike admin powers, I've upgraded her from "Users awaiting email confirmation" to "Established members". She might have some limitations on her permissions until she's posted a few messages but should be otherwise okay.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Welcome to BAUT, LadyShea, is it the light speed question?
