Problems with registration and login
« on: March 24, 2016, 10:19:19 PM »
Att: Admins


Greetings,

I have a friend who was already registered into the forum and now he cannot login. His nickname is Drakenhof. If you want any further information, please send me a personal message.

Furthermore, I had some troubles to register myself some months ago. Never received an e-mail confirmation. One day, just to prove it, I enter my nick and password and, surprising, I logged. Not a problem for me now, but maybe there are some followers out there who want to participate in the forum and cannot.

I wrote personal messages to two administrators but never received any answer; could anyone help my friend Drakenhof?

On the other hand, another question: why doesn't function none of the other sections (library, gallery, etc)? Are they under construction?

Thank you
Rogers

Bugman knows this all too well, and is working on it:

http://www.bugmansbrewery.com/topic/47760-warhammer-empire-email-problem/


I think getting new members registered is crucial for the longevity of the forum.

Most who join and then write something do so pretty soon after joining. If they lose interest in the start, they might not pick it up when they receive a registration confirmation weeks or a month later. The percentage of new non-posters has markedly risen since the problems in registration emerged.

We are losing people who are interested in the forum, the hobby, and the Empire.
We are losing dozens of interesting posts, pictures, reports and comments per month.


All of this said, THANK YOU for keeping this forum running & alive!  :::cheers:::

Is it sure that the problem with registration is fixed?

If it is fixed, we have a major problem with interest in the forum.

If it isn't fixed, we're losing potential new members.

Where does that graph come from?

It's based on the memberlist of this forum. Date Registered + yes/no for writing 1+ posts. I did it manually with Excel, but with proper software, you could have graphs like this automatically from many aspects of the forum.

A couple of months ago, I tried to create an (additional) account, but it didn't work then. Haven't tested since.

I was sort of hoping there would be a problem with registration, to explain the low interest to join this forum. If there isn't, well, then we're seeing a drastic drop in interest.

Thanks!

The two month dry spell has ended. New people are joining and contributing to the Empire Discussion Forums. Makes me happy.

Hello,

Can an admin on the Warhammer-Empire Forum approve my request to join please?

I have an old user name under Eric Roof and a new name under Bizarrosanta.

I'm not getting the email approvals to join, change password etc. Can someone help me out and I don't remember my old password.

My current email is either erictroof@gmail.com or conquestminiatures@msn.com

Thanks.
