Email Verification Help

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum.

For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

I've verified it twice and your site is saying I haven't. It's not my providers problem because it getting the emails.
Thanks

Yes I had another account, but I just deactivated it.
Or should I use another new email address.

I put the wrong email address, but I don't know how to change it. I tried, but I'm not seeing an option.

Use the contact form to explain the issue and include the correct email, an admin will change it for you. :tiphat:
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.

What is happening when you click the link? Is it sending you to a login page?

I received the verification email and have tried clicking it several times. It will tell me my email is verified but when I try selecting books to review it says I can not review yet because my email is not verified.
Copy and paste what it says when you try to varify and send it through the contact link with an explanation of the problem. :tiphat:

I keep getting the email verification link, click on it and go to the site but it never verifies my email. Just keeps making me click on verification link to get emails. I've done it about 20 times :-(
Anyone else have this issue?

Does the link take you to the login screen?

I’ve tried all of the steps and still no verification email - I received your welcome info email no problem but can’t actually do anything until my account is verified, which I am currently unable to do.
