Please note that you can not reply to a personal message by replying to the notification email.
Recently admins have received some email responses to personal messages. This is because some members have replied to the notification email. You can not reply to a personal message via the email.
What replying to the notification email does is send a copy of the original message and the reply to the admin email address. It does not send your reply to the person who sent you the message.
The email notification of the personal message does request "PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL!"
New members registering please do not hesitate to contact our admin if you do not see a validation email within a few minutes of registering. Yahoo and some other email addresses tend to block the validation email and without this part of the process your account remains in limbo.
Our admins are more than happy to help you complete the validation process should this automated system fail. We can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that you may experience a delay between registering your account and validating before you are able to post as we do also manually process all registrations to keep this forum free of spam. Your account should be activated within 24 hours of you completing the validation process.
