I created an account as a guest. After five days and enjoying what I was reading. I joined as a member. I received an email asking me to activate my account. That is where I got lost. Can anyone help me please?

There should have been an activation link in the email to confirm the activation process.

@Jim SoG can you look into this?

In your email asking you to activate your account, there is a hyperlink, click on it and you are all set.....

I have received the same email to activate. I am sure they will get it fixed. I wasn’t a guest at first I made purchase but the activation link sent me to the login page but no password. That’s when I did a guest account to setup them added the OB number.

When you were directed to the log in page without password is when you activated your account credentials… adding your OB number to your profile had nothing to do with the process of activating your account.

It looks like someone felt sorry for me and fixed the issue. My number is 29660.
Jim and the guys behind the scenes fixed your problems… btw, Jim is the only admin for OB forums.
