I’ve been checking these forums on/off since 06 or so, rarely posting myself but enjoying the insights you all have to our club and the game itself. - oh and also the petty arguments are amusing sometimes :)
anyway, I saw the issue with registration and gave it a go myself to see if I could register a new account. Voila :)
basically this is silly but what seems to work is as follows:
upon registration when you are notified that an email confirmation has been sent to your mail, it seems nothing is sent most of the time. But on that page you can select change email address. Press it, change it to another mail of yours or a bogus mail. Afterwards a new mail is sent to this email that you may or may not have. Keep doing this while changing your email back to your original email until finally a confirmation mail DOES arrive. - after that you’re in :)
took me 3 changes to actually receive the mail.
Being stubborn is the key is seems.
anyway, hope it helps as a quick fix for now.
