New member can't be new member

I'm posting this for some one else who is having problems joining, I'm just going to do a copy and paste of what was sent to me. If you respond with helpful advice, the person will see it as I will link it back to his request to me in the Trawler Forum:

"I sent a registration request a couple of weeks ago to the cruiser forum. Received an email that an admin would have to approve it. I didn't hear anything so I replied to the email a week ago. Still no response. Went to the forum and it says contact an admin but I can't see anything to find someone to contact. I saw the link you provided about doing life vests from that forum. Do you know someone I can contact to see what the issue may be?

Thanks
Greg"

If Greg is working from a computer, he can click on the Contact Us button near the bottom of almost every page. A writing box will appear in which he can write about the nature of the difficulty is happening, and when he clicks on Send, it will go into a queue for the administrators.

TBH this is a loss for this forum, as his knowledge and expertise is a vast resource. He can be found on his FB page, and is very interactive on that and his fan page.

Re: New member can't be new member

Im having the same issue over on Trawler Forum! No response from Admin and I am stuck. Can't view pics, can't comment, can't send messages to members posting trawlers for sale, etc..

Doesn't seem very user friendly.

Re: New member can't be new member

rsn48,

Report your own post, with the message from Greg. It will go into the queue as described above. For the first line, put in Caps 'ATTN: ADMINISTRATOR.' I am sure someone will get back to you in a day or two. The mods are all volunteers, and spread out over the world, and the administrators are all spread out too. I'm sure one of them will be able to help, but it may be beyond the privileges of the moderators to handle.

Or, you can make the request to them directly, by using the Contact Us button at the bottom, right of center. A mod cannot do this for you, successfully, it has to be the member, him or herself.

Ann

The OP was almost two years ago so hopefully it has solved by now!

Hi - I believe you'll find this is fixed. Your account was never fully activated (click link in e-mail confirmation)
