    I've tried twice to join f295.org. About 6 months ago, and a couple of weeks ago. They never validated my login, and then deleted it after a while. Emails to the help and info email addresses yielded no response. Emails sent by other members yielded no response.

    Does anyone have a direct email to a specific person over there that I can contact?

    Have you checked your spam folder? Sometimes the authorization emails end up there.

    Yeah, I checked that. Just tried it with a gmail account too, where nothing else is coming through, and nothing yet. And the other person who sent them something on my behalf never got anything back either. So, that was three angles covered, with same results, though the gmail account might be too early to tell.

    I'll drop Tom Persinger a PM, and see if he can read this thread. AFAIK, F295 is an open and free membership, with members from across the world.

    It says FREE FORUM. They'd probably have gotten a subscription already had I been able to get in.

    Hi Zydeholic-
    I apologize that you've been having difficulty joining F295. The forum is, as Joe points out, free to the people. I don't recall having seen an email from you or on your behalf come through and if an account remains unvalidated for 30 days it's deleted. Please sign up again and send me a PM here on APUG with your username and we'll get your account validated.

    Again, my apologies for the inconvenience. We look forward to counting you as a member.

    Best,
    Tom

    Tom, I sent you a private message, but it's not showing in my "Sent Messages" box, so I'm hedging my bets here.

    Let me know if you have not received anything.

    Somebody hates me. I sent you three messages through APUG, and none are showing in my "Sent Messages" folder.

    my f295 login id is the same as here, "zydeholic".

    Ok, just tested, sent myself a message, got it, but nothing shows up in my sent messages folder. So maybe you've heard from me. Sorry about all this.

    Cheers-
    Tom

    Now if we can just figure out why my "Sent Messages" are not saved on APUG!

    That's easy, it's because of DELETED FOR NATIONAL SECURITY REASONS.

    Zydeholic; is the "Save a copy of this message in your Sent Items folder" at the bottom of the compose message page ticked?
