Joining forum problem

Post by chunnybh »

Hello admin folk.
I have a friend who is trying in vain to join the forum.
His name is Iain Warner.
Any advice I can pass onto him?
Thanks: Chunny

I also have a friend who is trying unsuccessfully to join.
All goes well until he reaches the Verification Question which is blank. With no question he cannot proceed.
He wonders whether his old Apple Mac computer system is the problem.
His name is Adrian Tuddenham and his email address is liz@poppyrecords.co.uk.
He is happy to be contacted direct if anyone can help.

Several times I tried to join and every time the verification question was a failure. Finally I gave the program the answer it wanted, and the routine completed. I patiently awaited an email advising my membership, though none arrived. Then after some time, TODAY, I logged in and found that I had successfully joined the tribe.

What was the answer that the program wanted? It might finally help my friend to join (see my post above).

I've said this before... But what if you're colleague tries joining the forum in another pc, or using a different browser? Or maybe it's that his browser has restrictions, as popup windows forbidden, or high security internet settings etc that sometimes block certain website features as the captcha windows and the like.
