When I initially tried to join FD, I never received a confirming email, and thus could never sign in. I tried:
- Multiple attempts to re-send the confirmation email.
- Changing email addresses
- Attempting to re-send the confirmation e-mail from various IP addresses, both local and international.
- The only one that sort of worked - getting a throw-away email address.
The reason that it “sort of” worked is that it allowed me to receive the confirmation email and act on it. That allowed me to sign in. I then attempted to change the email address listed in my preferences to my real address. Apparently that requires a confirm email as well, and I am not receiving them. The address then reverts to the thrown away address that I used for signing up.
Suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
