Help with some friends trying to join the site (no reply to their signups)

Postby Rajam » Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:12 pm UTC

Hello, I'd like to request help from admins to admit some friends who are trying to join the site to play some Mafia games in the respective subforum. These guys are:

#HBC | YOLOSWAG (he changed his password, but never received an email back, so he can't log in)
Spak
Maven89

Thanks in advance!

If they just post in the thread in general then we can approve their posts and they'll be fine.

Assuming the option does what it says it does, they are active now.

^ using less steganography: he manually verified the accounts of your friends (bypassing the email verification) and they can log in now.

(I guess the thing Angua said still applies if they want to join forum games, but I don't know which buttons ST pressed exactly. Who knows he might've pressed buttons to activate the ICBMs. And those are only tied to bypassing account verification in phpBB, not to bypassing the 5-posts barrier.)

The admin panel has a "Activate" option.

I assumed it would activate the account and bypass verification.

I was correct. Hooray me!
