Email verification of Registration is now on.
« on: September 28, 2018, 01:23:38 AM »
In order to find out if the spammer has a valid email address, as they look dodgy to me, I've turned on email verification.

This means anyone registering from now on will have to wait for an email, and click the link on it to verify their email is real, before gaining member status.

This may cause problems, since some of the web mail systems actively block forum emails, and so some people wont get the validation email.

If this is you, and you came looking for a workaround or reason you still cant get in, email me at rego @ writersanctum . com.
Genres: Space Opera/Fantasy/Cyberpunk, with elements of LitRPG and GameLit. Also Spiritual and Games.
