Well looks like I screwed up big time...
I thought that with correcting the previous registration error everything would be working just fine, but it seems like I was wrong. And very wrong at that...
Somehow a setting was set at Member Approval instead of Member activation, which does the following:
When this option is enabled any members registering to the forum will have a activation link emailed to them which they must click before they can become full members
This option will make it so all new members registering to your forum will need to be approved by the admin before they become members.
The problem with this is that no matter who registered, I never got a notification at all, nor did a new registration pop up at the bottom of the board letting us know that someone registered like it used to.
On top of this, the emails sent to the admin email get forwarded to my old yahoo account instead of my gmail one... :-/
Hope that all if fixed now, and I manually upgraded the accounts that I recognised between the spambots on the list. But if you aren't activated even after registering just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
I should have caught this problem a couple of weeks back, but truth be told, I'm now on my 4th week of sick-leave from work. As you probably know from me whining on about not feeling well in the past, it's been going on for several months now. And I guess last month something just gave.
Starting to feel a little better now for the past 2 days, and I hope this time my condition remains to improve unlike last time where I finished up Mean Machines 9 and 2 days later I could barely get out of bed again.
Sleeping 13 hours a night and then going downstairs to brush my teeth, eat a little something to take all the medication and then pass out on the couch again for a couple of hours. Rinse and repeat.
Some days I swear I took more pills than I ate actual food.
Oh well. Hope the worst is behind me this time.
Sorry yet again for all the trouble and this whole big mess.
