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. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

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.
Did you contact your email provider? If so, what did they say about the problem?
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.

I am a new member. I receive the verification email and click on the link but it still says I need to verify email and also cannot select a book to review. I have clicked on resend verification several times with the same result. Please give me some guidance. I have checked FAQ but there is no item addressing this issue that I could find.
Thank you

What is happening when you click on the link? Are you being sent to a login screen?

I am not getting the verification e-mail and I realized my keys must've been sticky because the address is missing a letter; (there needs to be two d's).

Send your corrected email via the contact form. You can find the link at the bottom of the site. :tiphat:

I have received the verification email several times and clicked in the link again and again, but the system still tells me to request a verification email.

I agree with the above message about multi times clicking the link. I think I need help.

Are you being taken to the login screen?
If so, let the site navigate you away after logging in.

I've just solved the problem. Don't click on the link. Completely copy it and paste it on the address bar of your browser.
