    I started registering here like 2 months ago at least, but NEVER got the confirmation email... apparently, AOL was the issue. Ugh, I feel dumb now.

    I forgot that I had a yahoo account, so tonight, out of boredom, I tried with that email and it worked! Im not sure I really like the username I picked out formyself, I kinda wasn't expecting to actually be able to activate the account, haha


    So yah, I'm here now :)

    Welcome, so AOL does not work at all? Not even the spam folder?

    If you need the name changed, just private message me. :)

    Ryan, my site has issues sending to AOL as well. AOL is big on SPF records, and you don't have one set up for sexualforums.com Once you have one, you will have to contact AOL directly (by phone) to have your domain removed from their block list. Check out http://postmaster.aol.com/ for more info

    Nope, not even in the spam. I had thought SF wasn't allowing new registrations for some reason (I know a couple forums that do that periodically to avoid trolling and spammers), or I had somehow broke the internets, but turned out AOL is the lame one here, heh


    I'll change my name eventually I'm sure, but I dont want to be hasty this time.


    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome :D

    Welcome. I had the same problem when I signed up last week. I just pestered Ryan until he enabled my account.
    I like your handle just fine too. ; )
