If you have AOL, you may not be receiving your activation codes from the boards. This is directly from the proboards support forum:
"I'm not getting my activation key in my email!
If you use AOL, they tend to block lots of mail that should be allowed through. If you can not get your key with AOL, we suggest you use an alternate email account with a different provider (such as hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc)."
After reading all the feedback, bugs, and fixes, this seems to be the only way. Creating a new account, won't fix it, it seems. It's the e-mail address that is the problem, or Proboards software is the problem. I can't fix it like I used to with password problems.
Everyone having troubles receiving an activation code may have to sign up for a NEW e-mail acount. I will keep checking the Probaords Support Forums to see if anyone has come up with a better solution.
Proboards also suggested calling AOL and let them know that Proboards is NOT spam, and see if they listen.
I'll have a Cafe-mocha-vodka-vallium to go please!
