When you create a login
« on: November 22, 2013, 03:38:40 pm »

After bein inundated by spam, Shawn added some spammers protection software.  That helps with the spamming, but makes creating a login a two step process. 
When you sign up for the first time, the website will send you an email.  You need to follow the directions in the email, then your login will become an active login.  I can also manually activate accounts, but only from a computer, not my iPad. 
I mention this because I am currently on the iPad, and there are 4 members I recognize, waiting to be activated.  So, follow instructions in the follow up email, and your accounts will be activated.
Sorry for the two step process, but after an eyeful of spam porn, we needed to take action.

Probably a dumb question...   
Will those of us already here (prior to today) need to re-create our logins?

It's a minor inconvenience to rectify a huge problem. You'd think spammers would have better things to do with their time.

This will not affect any of those wh have already created a login.  Only those folks from now on.  I know we would have problems, but I didn't think it would be this bad. 
For the past 2 years on the old board, I had the new members on manual activation by me, or a moderator.  We ran the ip addresses through a spam checker and either deleted, or activated.
Rebecca, you so right.  What a waste of everyone s time.  Really, do we need spam written in Japanese.  But I was REALLY ANGRY about the porn spam. 
Anyway, instead of just registering and then posting immediately, it is now a two step process.  And all ip addresses that are deemed to be spammers, do not get the second step.

GOOD MOVE, Kysa! Guess I will have to go somewhere else to learn a foreign language.  ;)

There are 17 folks that have created a login, but have not activated their accounts.  I recognize a bunch of you, and Jeanne told me she had difficulties.  I can manually activate you, but only from a real computer.  I apologize, but I cannot do anything until Sunday night.  I am 150 miles away with only the iPad.

Yahoo!  I figured out a way around it!  I managed a to activate a bunch of you from the iPad.  If you were having trouble, please trying logging in again, and see if I fixed you.

My old user name and PW still show up each time I get on the site.  I swear that I changed it! Can it be fixed?

I am not sure anyone but Kysa can fix this. She is gone for just a bit, but I will see that she gets this request when she returns. It may be possible for you to clean out all cookies and login again with your proper credentials. That could reset the default correctly for you.

I am pretty sure what you mean is that your computer automatically fills in your old user name.  This is a problem at your end.  What browser are you using?  The only one I am very familiar with is Firefox.  But I can still try to walk you through this.  You need to delete the saved user name and password in the browser security preferences.
