Long Wait for After Registering

Hello,

One of my neighbor's has a foreign exchange student, and she says it has taken her a very long time after registering to finally post. I remebered the same thing happened to me. I just seems like it shouldn't take 3 weeks to activate an account.

Yes, I remember when Ozone sent me an I.M. about this problem. I have never had to deal with it, but it should not take that long.

Re: Long Wait for After Registering

Well, we try to check and approve them all within a few days or one week usually. But sometimes things happen that are beyond our control.
1. technical problems
2. personal stuff

If you know how many people register every day and there are only a handful of us who can actually do the checking.....and we do have jobs/studies/private lives too...

And no, opening registration is not an option..... thanks to some of our permanently banned users

Re: Long Wait for After Registering

Only forum I know which takes so long to register. Every other forum on the Internet it's done automatically.

Not only the servers are from 1980, but the registration process too. Only at MTF!

it used to be automatically.....but some permanently banned users spoiled that a few years ago. (making like 30 accounts in 30 minutes and spamming the place with a lot of crap. So this might not be the "normal" way, but it certainly makes life a lot easier around here. At least this way we have a better chance of filtering them (and spammers) out.

Re: Long Wait for After Registering

I remember very well that it took months for my account to be activated. I thought it wouldn't happen anymore.
and a friend of mine signed up right before the AO and is still waiting as well

Re: Long Wait for After Registering

then i guess something went wrong because I cleared everyone today (and the longest waiting person registered on the 14th... ), so those who are waiting right now registered today. I'd say we're up to date!
