  3. With the upgrade to the new forum, tapatalk is not functioning properly and we have had little to no support from them in fixing the problem. That said, the new forum is fully configured to support mobile devices so if you are missing being able to visit TUG on your phone try disabling tapatalk and just using your phone/tablet browser to see the new look!

    When you initially register as a user of the TUG Bulletin Board, and Account Confirmation email will be sent to you. This contains a link for you to click to confirm you wish to create a TUG BBS account. This is a standard validation method used by tens of thousands of bulletin board systems around the 'net. and serves two purposes:
    • Prevents creating an account if somebody that knows your email address tries to sign you up without your knowledge.
    • Confirms that you have added a valid email address in your registration
    Until you confirm your account, you will not be able to log in or post messages to the board. Instead, you will be shown a notice that 'Your account is currently awaiting confirmation'. If you need to have another Account Confirmation email sent to you, there is also a 'Resend Confirmation email' link in the notice. This will be sent to the address currently entered in your bbs profile

    If you have not received this email please see the thread covering this (click here).

    This can ONLY be sent to the address currently entered in your bbs profile.
    The web link given in your activation email includes codes at the end which tell the system exactly which user is trying to activate his/her account.

    The address should look something like this non-working example:
    http://tugbbs.com/forums/index.php?account-confirmation/XXXXX/email&c=YYYYYYYYYYY

    (where XXXXX and YYYYYYYYYYY are numbers unique to you and this email). If you are not attempting to go to this FULL address, it will result in an error message saying "The requested page could not be found".

    Different email clients handle long addresses in different ways. If your email client splits this long address into more than one line, or otherwise does not include the entire address as part of a clickable hyperlink, it may be that only the first portion is getting entered in your browser, thus the system does not know which user is trying to activate his/her account.

    Try to copy/paste the ENTIRE address from your activation email, including ? and everything that follows it, into the address bar of your browser and see what happens. Be sure there are no spaces in the address.

    Users of the AOL browser sometimes report problems in activating their accounts. If you use the AOL browser, please see this post: http://www.tugbbs.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32835

    And finally, many times we receive pleas for help with activation only to find that the person's record shows them to have successfully completed their registration already. Before contacting BBS Administration for help, go ahead and try to log in using the username and password you selected when you entered your registration information. If you are not immediately shown the 'Your account is currently awaiting confirmation' notice, then your registration has been successfully activated.

    If all else fails, please forward your entire activation email message to admin@tugbbs.com with a request to activate you manually, but please try all of the above first.
