[JOINING] Signed up, but no verify email? Check here.

Post by STrRedWolf »

If you have gone through the signup form, and it told you that you're in and pending verification...

...but get no "Please verify by putting a code word in at this page." email...

...or do get it, but the page doesn't work.

THEN LET US KNOW HERE! I need your:
  • username that you picked for your comic
  • when you signed up
  • What ISP you are using.
  • and if you got the verify email, but the verify page isn't working.
Some ISP's, such as AT&T and AOL, and Microsoft's Hotmail/Live Mail are blocking us. If you cannot get our email, you need to contact them. We have tried to follow their procedures and continue to get burned. Applying pressure on your end seems to be the only way to get them to fix the problem...

...well, except Microsoft's Hotmail/Live Mail. Spammers are all over that like white on rice. :(

Yahoo! Mail is being delayed. I've contacted Yahoo! about it, and will try to get it cleared out. It's not on our end.

IF YOU GOT VERIFIED, AND YOUR SITE IS UP, BUT NEVER GOT A PASSWORD AFTER THE 7-10 DAY WAITING PERIOD, THIS ISN'T THE THREAD FOR YOU! Don't post here! Instead, follow these instructions:
Dr Neo Lao wrote:If your comic is showing up (or at least the account is) then that means that you should be able to go get a password on your own right now.

Read this page in the CGWiki for instructions on how to change/get your FTP password.

Take the time to read through the other tutorials if you have not already done so.

Important! You will need to make at least one change on the templates in order to get the comic to show up in IE - find this part in the templates:

Code: Select all

.info {font-size:0.75em;}
	
	//--!>
And change it to this:

Code: Select all

.info {font-size:0.75em;}
	
	//-->
That apostrophe means that nothing except the background colour show up in Internet Explorer (but the comics work fine in all other browsers).
I repeat UNABLE TO VERIFY PEOPLE ONLY THIS THREAD, please. I thank you for your patience!

Okay, the signup page has some problems. I'm going to fix the two entries that are causing accounts to fail, and fix the signup page.

Hey. I signed up and didn't get the activation code for my FTP password. I tried to do it again and have now been waiting a week for the email since this last attempt, and still no activation code. I signed up around the 18th of August (not exactly sure)

My username is: hybridfighting2exist

Lodged the application about two weeks ago.
Can't resubmit because it says my account is still pending.
Username is RuthbornC9 or something like that. (can't remember for sure because its been two weeks and I didn't think I would need to write it down for recollection.)

I haven't received any emails of any kind.

I got the email telling me to send in a verification code and I entered it and got a message saying it was verified. This was all 2 weeks ago and I have heard nothing since.
Is there anything else I need to do now?
Is there some sort of email I am supposed to wait for to tell me all my details, how to get started etc, or do I already have everything I need now but I just don't know it? I got the impression I was supposed to get another email though, telling me if it had been accepted.
Thanks

I've signed up and gotten the verification email, but I'd not gotten the password email and I'd been waiting nearly two weeks.

I did receive the verification email, but it didn't seem to work. My email account says I got the verification mail ten days ago, and I entered the code as soon as I got it. However, I've yet to get any other emails regarding a password or anything along those lines. Thanks. :)

Edit: Oh, and I attempted to check the account status with the CGI script I found on the Comic Genesis page, but I just got a 404 Error. :(

Okay, still no email or notification.
I'm getting a bit worried that my application is not being processed.
Any info to alleviate my concerns would be appreciated.

@ MiraiTrunksLove: If you didn't get any emails at all, then check your spam/junk box as sometimes CG emails get picked up by spam filters. Also, some ISP's are known to block CG emails so people don't get them at all.

@ Everyone Else: at the moment there is nothing to do but exercise patience. STrRedWolf is looking into it and hopefully it'll all be sorted soon...
