Our forums were having difficulty sending out emails over the last several days. This issue has been resolved, and you should now get email notifications once again for private message conversations and watched threads. I have resent confirmation emails to everyone that has tried to register for whitelist approval in the last month and have not confirmed their email address. Please search your email for an email from the address firstname.lastname@example.org to find it. I would also recommend adding this address to your contact list so you don't miss important emails from us. It would also be a good idea to look in your spam folder if you are awaiting an email confirmation message and can't seem to find it. Once you confirm your email address, you will be placed into our whitelist approval queue, which goes through our vetting process. If we receive a large volume of new applications due to this email problem, please have patience as we work through the queue. Thank you for considering membership with us, and I apologize for the inconvenience. If you experience any other difficulties with email or your application process, please post your issue in the "Get Help!" forum for the fastest response.
