Hi everyone, David here.
A few times recently, BrainStorm users have written to ask why they can’t get into the forum even though they’ve signed up. The sad answer is that we have tried all manner of ways of stopping the spam applications but they keep pouring in. The genuine applicants are hard to spot.
A couple of months ago, we added a note to the confirmation emails to explain this and to ask people to write to us directly with their chosen user name. We would then activate them manually.
So, if you’re someone who’s tried to join the forums but without success, this could be the answer. Please drop us a line – ‘support’ at brainstormsw etc (I’m trying to avoid attracting even more spam) – and we’ll sort you out.
