View Full Version : Registration Issues and how to fix them

December 03, 2015, 23:33
The number one issue I get contacted about is that someone can't use their account. This is generally due to one of two things:

1. You didn't get the confirmation email which you HAVE to receive and click the link inside in order to confirm your email address is valid.

If you did not get the confirmation email please check your spam folder. If it's not there you can re-request it by going to http://www.falfiles.com/forums/register.php?do=requestemail&email= and make sure your registered and valid email address is listed and submit the request.

2. You've done the above, but you still can't post or use the forum. This means that your account hasn't been approved by an administrator yet.

If you received the email and confirmed your account, but it just hasn't been approved yet, be patient. Depending on schedules, etc.. this usually takes 24-48 hours, sometimes it may take longer to happen so be patient.

Also, if you put garbage as a response to your location or you fail entirely to follow the directions when you register, your account will either stay in limbo or be deleted.

So please.. follow instructions when you register and try using the provided link to re-request the confirmation email if you didn't get it when you registered.
