|Verifying email addresses
I've had a few issues recently where people have changed PCs, forgotten passwords, etc and have not been able to fix it themselves due to
entering an invalid email address on the site. I also get a whole load of bounced email from people who subscribe to topics, and other things that
activate email notifications, but have invalid addresses which is getting out of hand.
I'm therefore implementing a verification system for email addresses as of 12th September 2011. If your address has not been verified by then
you will not be able to post until it is.
Now before we get anyone ranting about 'spam'....
1. Yes, we did have a problem with spammers trawling the site for email addresses. However, the bug that allowed them to do this was fixed over a
2. Only registered and verified (using the phone call system if in the last few years) members can view email addresses of other members
3. In your control panel, there is an option to display your email address. The default is 'on', however if you turn it off only Fozzie
and myself will be able to see your address.
Any queries or comments please drop me an email or u2u.
