    I contacted the forum admin for help & they said my account was not yet active. How do I activate my account?

    Or

    I am receiving a Message at the top of the screen that says my account is not yet active

    When you registered and email was automatically dispatched to the email address you used in your registration. In this email is an activation link to activate your registration.

    If you did not receive this email, it is because it is sitting in your Spam Folder. Please add the following email address (without the spaces) to your Email Whitelist: forum @ budget101.com

    Once you have done so, please visit the following link to request a New Activation Link to be sent to your email:

    Request Activation Link

    Or, alternatively, you can go back through your Spam mail folder and click on the original link that was sent out.

    Hi FreebieQueen!

    I’ve requested activation twice and have yet to receive the email. My Spam mail folder is empty, so I know it’s not there. Maybe Yahoo’s just being obnoxious?

    Anyway, any help for me?

    Thanks,
    Autumn Hazen

    I’m not quite sure I understand what the issue is that you are experiencing… your account is already activated or you would be unable to login and post with your username.

    It would show you as unregistered/guest. Please be more clear so we can help you.

    I have added the forum’s email address to my whitelist correctly & to my address book (spaces removed), I did not get any email with links to activate my account (tried 3 times) and I still get the following message when I try to post or view threads in the forum.
    Can you activate me without my getting the email? There is nothing in my spam folder.
    Let me know if you need me to give you my email address…
    Thanks for your help!

    You’ll need to activate your membership and then click on the Submit Help Ticket, (Top left hand side of the nav bar) and request a change of userid. Due to spammers we no longer accept help tickets from unactivated members/unregistered guests.

    I am soooo confused, I thought I had it figured out. I still am unable to view most posts that are out there. Your site looks cool, but I am having a very hard time getting around in here.

    I am not sure what I am doing wrong???
    It continues to tell me I am not registered, however, I also found that I would not be able to post if I was not registered. Plz help???

    Hi there Kitten, I am sorry that you’ve been experiencing issues with logging in. I’ve found that some IP companies Spam control settings block vBulletin sites before their customers ever receive them, which I suspect is why you didn’t see the emails in your inbox despite checking your spam settings.

    , I pulled up your account/username and it shows that you’ve been activated already. It is possible that you’ve been loading a cached page which prevents you from seeing the activation. If you are still experiencing issues, please let us know, we’ll take a look at for you.

    Liss… I had an account before for years and the password was changed somehow. I have requested 3 times for an email to be sent with my password to that email and it never showed.

    So I just created a NEW account and it has not sent me an activation link.

    Is something going on with the email from your site?

    Amy (amy99s was my old account) I think am still a moderator on the cvs and walgreens boards.

    we used to chat on im all the time, not sure if you remember me or not lol

    Hi I never received an activation e-mail. It’s not in spam or my regular e-mail. I even tried registering using my secondary e-mail.

    This account and no activation e-mail. I’ve even had it resent. Please help.
    Thank you

    In frustration of having to repeat the same anti robot step I have entered in m y username and email in correctly and therefore will never get the code to activate my account. I wanted my user name as mamawolf7 not mamawofl7. can I cancel out all together and re join or how best can we solve this issue so I can use the user name I wanted and have the correct e mail?

    [note] Once your account is activated, we can fix your username for you, just reply back here. [/note]

    I originally misread your post, sorry about that. I have fixed your username, fixed your email & activated your account. You can login with the username and password that you chose originally. If you have forgotten your password you can have it resent to you.

    This is my 2nd request for your help in activating my account. I have added the email address (without the spaces) to my whitelist (as you refer to it) so the mail doesn’t arrive in my spam folder. I also have checked my spam folder and I never received my activation email.

    Please respond ASAP as I am anxious to particpate in this wonderful board. I am a member of the budget 101 group in yahoo groups but it’s just a list that refers me here to these forums. Wish I could see some of these fabulous recipes.

    Is it because I’ve got AOL as my email account?

    Thanks for your help!

    This must be my “being stupid” day. I can’t seem to find what ppl say is right there, if I do find it the computer plays the fool. This truly looked like a neat site but I know when to call Uncle.

    Oh well, nothing I can do about it. Thanks for the visit anyway. Y’all have a great night.

    there isn’t anything to activate, we did away with email activation several years ago. Your account is already active, just moderated.

    I really want to read about the Photography Business article that was post on Facebook about an hour ago but I get this message instead:

    Budget101.com “Digging yourself out of debt, when all you have is a Spoon”

    AngelaGaudet, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

    If you are trying to view threads or post, You may not have completed your registration process and activated your free account.
    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page; Are you trying to edit someone else’s post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    Did you see a Big Red X on the Previous Page? If so, that means you have attempted to access a Restricted Area that is meant for Active Members only.

    The server had a glitch for a day or so. If your account wasn’t activated you wouldn’t have been able to post. 🙂
