• We just finished a major forum upgrade. Please check out the "Whats New and Help" Thread at https://aawforum.org/community/index.php?threads/forum-upgrade-whats-new-and-help-march-2021.17436/ If you are having problems using the forums, please clear your browser cache and that should clear up any issues. Otherwise post in the Help Thread or email us at forum_moderator@aawforum.org. Hope you enjoy the refreshed site!
  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

The way the registration prowess works it this;
1) You fill out the form with your real name and submit
2) An email is sent to the email address you registered with that you have to click on the link to validate your email address.
3) Once you validate your email address, your request goes into my queue to approve.
4) Assuming you have used your rel name in the registration request, I login and approve it.
5) You are sent an email stating you are approved or rejected.

If you use GMAIL, the validation email is in your junk or SPAM folder and without you validating your Emil address, you will never get approved.

For some reason that I can't figure out, all mail from this site gets sent to my gmail spam folder. Even after I have repeatedly checked "Not Spam".

Are you adding email from aawforum.org to your list of approved senders or are you just marking individual email messages as not spam? If it is the latter, that doesn't change your spam filter settings.
