Comment: I just registered with you and it came back "successful". I was not asked for a password and now a password is required to sign in. Did I miss something? Whatever the case, what is my password?

Comment: I just registered and tried to login. Imagine my surprise when it said my password was incorrect. I tried to re-register but I did not see a password. I am confused.

It's funny to me that they seem to have finally noticed at the end that their caps lock was on, but rather than retype anything, just took it off and wrote the last couple words.

And this was from a person who had already filled out and submitted the application form. Apparently waiting half a day for her password to be mailed to her was the part she found too tedious.

Comment: It might help if you tell people on the website that even after registering, they will not be able to login until YOU approve them and send them an email containing a password. There is no mention of that in the registration process. So I immediately upon registering attempted to log back in to respond to a message on the forum, and my password that I selected was declined, which I did not understand.

You know what would help? Putting something in the FAQ that says something like "Your registration must be approved by the message board administrator before you will receive a password that allows you to post to the board."

You're welcome.

Comment: I know I am old, but it took several tries to register. Rejected: you did not complete age. Several lines above, I input Age 72. Also it was an optional question. I prefer to set my own password. I have one memorized. I found most of your Bold typed (must fill in) baffling. Graemlins? Perhaps Gremlins. Show signature by default. I don't even know what name is my public name, because of continued rejections. Age printed as (blank). I am 72. My birthday is 8-23. You are either European or Military, by use 28-Nov-06. I got out in '59 and haven't used it since. If you have further questions for me, please email me in informative English. I am not a coputer head. What is Avatar anyway?

Entering it into the field labeled "Age" would have been a good start.

quote:

Yes, I can see how the bolded instruction "Must enter current age" and the lack of an "optional" tag on that field might lead one to think that filling in the field was optional.

Apparently so.

No, graemlins. It says what it means. Just because you haven't seen the word before doesn't mean it's wrong.

The continued rejection would be a pretty good indication that you don't have one.

This guy isn't, that's for sure. Kind of amusing, though; if my grandad were ever to try and sign on to snopes.com, this is approximately what it would sound like...

...now if you'll excuse me, I suddenly really, really need to go make a phone call.
