    A couple of guys have emailed me to say that they have tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to join the forum. They are not receiving the confirmation email which enables them to log in.

    Hopefully a mod will notice this post and try to fix this. I will bump it up from time to time in the hope of catching someone's eye.

    In the meantime, if anyone out there is wanting to post a question or comment on the forum but can't join because of this problem, feel free to email me the question/comment. I am happy to act as a postbox. My email address is emptyheaded1976@yahoo.co.uk

    They should check their Spam folder just in case the emails have ended up there.

    Yeah, I forgot I already had an account on here and tried to make a new account back in May when I was starting to learn about hair systems. Waited for a few days for an email and got nothing. Thankfully I was able to just revert to this one.

    Actually you can check and see that the newest member to this forum was an account made on 2nd March. Must've been broken since then. Missing out on a lot of new members.

    I think the only person that can fix it is the admin and he has pretty much abandoned this place lol

    @Admin I agree, he is a senior poster, stable and sharp. Also I hope Admin fixes this issue for new users, he's already been messaged about it months ago. I unfortunately can't or I would in the brief time I am on here. I am not interested in moderating the place anymore (said for 2 years) so hope Admin recruits new ones! We always wanted you to be part of it Doctor, but you didn't :p

    I have a lot to thank Kevin for and the forum in general.

    Ah, my apologies. It must have slipped under other messages but I do remember reading it. I guess it was one of those messages I thought I had replied to but I didn't and then forgot. However, I had already raised it with Admin before anyway. My activity is barely cutting it anymore and the mod tasks are actually very minimal. This place deserves a more active Admin and new mods for sure.

    The only reason I still log on (when I can) is because I don't want the site to die off and for Admin's sake. It's important to a lot of users in the future too so I do some "quick tidying." But I can't keep doing this indefinitely either.

    Noah would be the perfect mod! He gave me the best advice 2 years ago, back when I started out. BaldBearded would be great too!

    Anyone know how to fix my login issue? I cant get on the site at all when on wifi. When off wifi it works fine. This issue began about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Fine before that. Thank you

    Well, that's quite the responsibility... they need more of an admin.

    You don't want ME as a moderator... I would probably ban quite a number of people.

    :D

    ^ I'm not familiar with the lad but looking at his posts, he seems like a candidate except for blanket bans :p. Out of the people I know and are possibly available I would choose INT, Matt and Noah as they are regular guys you would have a pint with. All three are smart, aware, active enough and mentally stable. There is always a turnover of mods once activity diminishes (it happens), usually the old mods help choose the new ones to an extent. The guys before me were good people too who helped me with the basics and told me about where/who to focus on at the time!

    In regards to Admin. I think he's enjoying his life (as everyone should) but even monthly monitoring would be nice :D

    @Wolf Pack Don't you have any ways to communicate with the admin? His mail or number?

    At this point he should sell the site or something, it's clear he doesn't care anymore.

    Thanks for the votes of confidence. I would be happy to do that, if asked. It doesn't seem an unduly onerous task.

    But the important thing is to get the technology fixed so that anyone who wants to join can do so. The hair system section of the board has gone from virtually dead a few years ago to the liveliest and most informative on the Web on this niche subject. That momentum is really worth preserving.

    This appears to be the only independent English-language forum for these issues (ours and the other hair-loss related forums here) that I have come across.
