The following people have signed up to the forum incorrectly.

As instructed, please sign up with your full HOL name, exactly as it is on your student profile and the HOL forum, and use the same email address, or your registration will be denied. This is done to prevent others from signing up as you, so we have to check you before we validate you here. Please only sign up if you have taken the Sorting Hat and are a member of HOL. Thanks.

Please note: No account will be approved until after you've validated your email address.
Further information can be found here.


However, there are a few special things to remember:

First of all, you need to sign up with your full HOL name and HOL email address. This is to make sure no one registers as you.

So, if your HOL name is Harry Potter, your HOL ID is ha001, and your HOL email address is hazza@thebadgersett.us, then you'd sign up here as Harry Potter with the email address hazza@thebadgersett.us.

Simple, huh?

All registrations have to have valid email addresses.

The forum is set up for a sort of double verification: users verify their email addresses, then the Badger Patrol verifies the account (checking names and addresses and putting you in the proper year). This means that, before a Badger Patroller will approve your registration, you have to click the email verification link in the email you got when you registered. By having this email verification, we know we have a way to contact you that works.

If you want to change your HOL address to a valid one, or just a different one, that's okay. Just remember: when you register, the email addresses have to match. *g*

I think that about covers it. If everyone registering will follow these rules, it'll make the registration process quick and easy, and the sooner you can get to exploring the Sett!

This isn't about any account being deleted (yay), but I want to remind everyone that you need to validate your email address before your account is approved. You should get an email with a subject line much like "New Registration at Hufflepuff Common Room", and in it you'll find a section called "Activation Instructions". That's got the instructions you want to follow.

If you didn't get it in your inbox, check your spam or junk mail folder; sometimes the email gets sorted there (it happened to Felicia!).

As I said in the HOL Forum post, I know there are issues with Hotmail users receiving the email, but there may be more email providers that are feeling persnickety. If you haven't received your email, and you've checked your inbox and spam folder (and maybe even tried requesting the validation email again, just to be sure), send me a HOL message so we can discuss your options. :)

Thanks, everyone! :badger: :hol:

PS: I just had the forum resend the validation emails to those who haven't validated yet. Hopefully you've got something now! *crosses fingers*


Known Persnickety Email Providers
- Hotmail/MSN/Outlook (basically Microsoft-owned addresses)
- AOL/AIM

I should probably put something fun and interesting here. Instead, it's just rambles. Oops.

If I may add a thing I just discovered personally: if you respond to a thread and ask for immediate notification, Gmail will send the reply mails to spam! You will need to go in and teach it NOT SPAM! It might even take a few tries since Gmail can be really stubborn.
