Legitimate email sometimes gets blocked as part of an effort to reduce spam, if you don't see the email, please look in your spam filter and add email@example.com to your spam whitelist. If you don't get it in 5 minutes something is wrong - you can contact us on the contact form - mention the email or username you chose - and we'll try to help you out.
The verification of your account is a two step process, once you have validated your account we will then screen your account. This is to make sure we only have real people on our site. Please be patient as this process can take up to three days. During this time you will be able to view hosts and contact them, but you will be unable to post any messages to the forum or any other public areas.
