Help! No registration email sent by chessvariants.com
« on: February 16, 2018, 01:12:33 am »
Hello all! I am new to this forum, but not new to chess. I registered for chessvariants.com but unfortunately have not received the email that they were supposed to send so that I may confirm my email address. I double checked that the email I input was correct, and I also attempted to create 2 other accounts under a different email, but unfortunately registration emails were also not sent to either of those. Is it normal for the registration emails of this site to take so long?

Any help is much appreciated!

It seems the system is not sending out emails.  I've emailed the site owner.  That's not something I can fix, but I can register you.  Just shoot me an email (mageofmaple@gmail.com) from the email you used to sign up to the Chess Variant Pages and I'll activate your account.

Has chessvariants.com been decommisioned completely, or is it just my internet connection? I have not been able to reach that website for about a weak now, the error always being a timeout because there is no response whatsoever from the server.

It appears to be fine (though sometimes not very active). The last post at comments is by you on 2/20 (from what I see). :-\

I can see it fine.

It has been down the last three days or so; it came back up earlier today.  (I haven't heard from Fergus yet about what the trouble was this time.)

I think it has to do with Gmail. I tried it with Yahoo! and it worked just fine.
