First time I joined the forums the email sent to me by the forums also went straight to the Junk/Spam folder.

That can happen with any type of email message, regardless of where it comes from.

I really don't remember if the 'Click To Join' link for this forum went to my Spam Folder or not. But, it's rather clever if you think about it because if you click to activate your account, that link (even if it's activated just for that one time), is pretty much useless afterwards and it's just waiting for you to delete it, along with any actual spam that you might receive.

Additionally, I doubt they want the additional responsibility as their real lives have proven busy enough to keep them from here in their current capacity as it stands.

Your "friend", eh? When y'all first joined, everyone was certain that was actually you on a dupe account, because you always posted at the same time, said similar things, & you even mistakenly commented on his profile using the wrong username, outing yourself. You explained this away by saying you were "brothers". Hmm... Anyway, I doubt anything can be done for him, it's not like Krang is just gonna open an account to someone who claims they're the owner, they'd need solid proof. They're not being "thrown under the bus" if the problem cannot be resolved.
Jester and Krang know that Donny's and I have different accounts, Ms/ Mr.Powder, I assume you are a girl or a very young boy (age 10) because of your username. My username is after a cat, (Mikey's cat) and also is the name of my kitty. So, little Miss/ or little boy don't assume what you don't know. And the relationship that I have with Donny's computer84 is not your business.

I'm merely stating facts and observations, comrade. Dunno what's with the borderline sexist comments, though.

Powder is a guy in his mid 20's, I don't see what it has to do with anything though. Most people don't know each others genders online unless we say so, etc.

As for the forums, my guess is it's on its last legs as Krang has probably finally lost interest. I imagine they'll still be up to about 2020, but I dunno about how long after.

You are right, Cyber about people's usernames. Without Krang this forum is basically headless. He is responsible to continue it or close it for good. The forum is 19 years old. Will be 20 next year. Let's see what happen.

If he re- register he will lose his current account. He and I were joined this forum back in November 2012.
Any suggestions Krang?
So he's getting an incorrect password error? Has he tried resetting his password? Has he tried a different web browser?

That's true, but the even bigger problem is spammers. It's not as easy as it used to be to tell them apart from legitimate users, and that's the biggest issue that's slowing down approvals.

The forums are here to stay.
