    Sorry to be a pain, but I'm itching to be part of this community haha!!!!!

    I've verified everything. email, my phone, my computer. I've scoured this forum and tried to find answers but can't.

    I cannot do the following:

    1. Start a new thread
    2. Update my profile photo
    3. Attach pictures or files to responses.
    4. Cannot view the forum rules.

    I've emailed an admin I guess via the contact link at the bottom of the site yesterday, but haven't gotten a response.

    Is this because I'm "too new" ?

    I am not a computer guy by any stretch. I know that when I joined I was stuck in limbo for a couple weeks myself. It had to do with getting an email from the site and responding to that email. I finally had one of the youngsters in my office set me up with a Google email. I re-applied using that Google email address. Subsequently received my confirming email and I was in. Do you have an alternate email that you can use to re-apply with? I wish I could help out more. I am relegated to die with an analog wired brain I suppose.

    Randy, thanks for reaching out. I am using a gmail account, and yesterday when applying I tried to use an alternate email as well (also a gmail). I received the verification emails fine. I'm not the best with computers myself, but this forum is off the same platform as others I use, so that is why I was so surprised at the trouble I'm having.

    I can create a whole new email account for this forum only, but should I use gmail again or a different provider? Although I am getting the emails fine now ?

    I'll wait for an email back from the forum I suppose and hope that fixes it.

    I think that if you try to re-apply using a different name, then that blackballs you somehow. I know @GDJMSP has a thread here somewhere about fixing hiccups. I'll see if I can track that down for you. Maybe it will help.

    First, welcome to the neighborhood!

    It takes a little while for confirmation before you can post. It must have been finalized or your comment would not have posted. Check your profile page for e-mail notifications.

    New here as well. I have gmail and I didn’t get the initial confirmation email. I read this thread and checked my spam folder- nothing there either. What is my next course of action?

    I got an email from someone who's trying to join Cointalk. His name is Andrey & he's used 3 different emails, has checked his SPAM box and never gets a confirmation email. If a mod can respond I can send you his email & details by message & you can see what the problem is.

    Thanks very much for helping.

    Hello Gallienus,

    Thank you again for your help. I am afraid there are some problems with the site. My friend from Italy also could not register there. I really hope that your post helps to resolve this situation.

    Best regards, Andrey

    Check your junk mail. When I registered my company email wouldn’t let the confirmation email come through. I had to set up a Gmail address….. For some reason the confirmation email tends to be viewed as junk by a lot of protective software. Good luck!
