Got issues with the main site, blogs, or forums?

Hi, I'm new to the forums. I have been having a problem with creating an account, as when you make a new account you have to validate your account by going to your email inbox and clicking a link. Whenever I click it though, it takes me back to the main screwattack web page, and says on the top of the webpage in a yellow bar:

A validation e-mail has been sent to your e-mail address. In order to gain full access to the site, you will need to follow the instructions in that message.

You have already used this one-time login link. It is not necessary to use this link to login anymore. You are already logged in.

I have resent the validation email numerous times, but to no avail. I really hope someone can help, because thsi is such a pain in the neck.

Thanks in advance :)

Best bet would be to PM a link to your profile to a mod or admin on the forums. They have the green/red names.

I don't really know what you mean by PM, but I presume you mean something like this:

http://www.screwattack.com/user/username

And if this is it, how do I send it to a mod or admin? I'm not good at forum stuff.

I ran into this problem myself where I got into this endless validation cycle. Check to see see that you aren't running no script or some kind of pop up blocker or try to open it in a different browser.

I've tried in three different browsers, I don't have any ad-blocker or popup blocker, and I'm pretty sure scripts don't have much to do with it. It still keeps giving the same yellow bar with the same "You've already used this login link" message. This is really starting to annoy me.

P.S. I've also changed the email address which it sends the validation email to. Still a problem.

I don't know who did it, but thank you to who verified my account. It is a good day :D
