Help for official android app

Not sure where to turn to - posting here in case Dave Register reads these forums. As a paid user of the android opencpn app, I have been trying to register on the bigdumbboat forums. I cannot complete the registration because in spite of a dozen attempts, I am not getting the activation email. The entire forum section seem to be walled off behind activation (whose bright idea was that?), so I can't even post my troubles on that forum.

And before anyone asks, yes, I have checked my spam folder

Here I am.

What is your attempted login name at the Android Forum?

Re: Help for official android app

I am affraid I have the same problem as sugatam. I tried to register at the forum on the page in Google Play where I purchased OpenCPN for Android last year. Unfortunately an email with code to activate did not come and after several repeated attempts to register I am still not accepted as a member of the forum. The only result is that when trying again I now read a message that I have to wait for about a month before I can be admitted to the forum. I don't know what I did wrong. An attempt to reach opencpn@bigdumboat.com by email on this subject also failed.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Help for official android app

Thank you Dave,
But problem remaines that after filling in username and password I still read:
"You have failed to login within the required number of attempts. You must wait 618 h 47 m 45 s before you can login again."
Do I really have to wait that long?
By the way, can I approach the forum on my laptop or is it obligatory to do this on the tablet, in Google Play?

Re: Help for official android app

Dave,
A few moments ago I tried to login again on a different spot (and on my laptop) and now I am on the forum. So I have to conclude that at first I took the wrong entrance!
Apologies!
Jan
