There are quite a lot of new registrations sitting in the queue waiting to get approved so I'm bumping this topic up again. People registering with yahoo, hotmail and gmail type addresses particularly need to pay attention to this if they hope to be given user access to the forum.
There are a lot of new members registering at the moment due to the interest in the likely sale of the Hibbert Lane College Campus site. Please note that new registrations are reviewed manually. When an application is approved you will be sent an activation email to the address you used to register (assuming it was genuine). You must respond to this to have your registration confirmed. If you don't seem to have received this email check your spam folder.
Users registering with hotmail, gmail and yahoo (etc) addresses may instead receive an email requesting that they explain their interest in Marple to me via a reply. This is because spammers regularly try to register using these type of addresses. If you get one of these requests, just tell me a little about yourself and your interests in Marple and I will approve your registration. You don't need to tell me you life story (some do) but just convince me that you have a genuine interest. You need to respond to the activation email or my request for a reply within 48 hours otherwise your registration will be deleted. You are welcome to try again if this happens.
