The new Ship of Fools forums are now open. Please follow this link:

https://forums.shipoffools.com

Everyone will need to register to join the new forums. Your old login on these boards will not work in the new place. Here's how to register in four easy steps:

1. Register button – On the new forums homepage, click the 'Register' button on the right, which goes to the Register page.

2. Register page – On the Register page, there are several fields to fill in, including:

Email: use a working email address.

Username: you only have one shot at this, because once you've entered your Username, it can't be changed. So choose wisely and check you've entered it correctly. There's a maximum of 20 characters.

Password: you'll be asked for a password which has at least 15 characters.

3. Confirmation email – Once you've completed the form, click the 'Register' button. An email will be sent to your email address asking you to confirm your registration. Please click the 'Confirm' link in the email.

4. Approval email – Once we receive your email confirmation, an Admin will approve your registration. You'll then receive a second email inviting you to sign in.

That's it.

You might find it helpful to look at these three FAQs pages, which explain registration and login, your forum identity and how to post messages.

From 5pm UK time today, we'll be closing the old boards here and setting them to read-only. The Styx alone will remain open. Please post on this thread any problems you have with registration.

Thanks, welcome to the new Ship of Fools, and farewell to our old online home, which has served us so well since 2001. My grateful thanks to every shipmate who has helped make this happen.

I have clicked on 'register' a couple of times, but nothing has happened.

Hi Nick,

Can I ask what web browser you are using? We've upped the security on the site, which is a good thing for everybody. But the certificate should be valid.

I'll need a bit more detail to check this out.

Thanks

I'm going to try a back-door member registration, using the email address on your profile here. It should send you an email telling you something useful (I've not done it before, so I've no idea what'll happen!)

Sure. I’ve tried on Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer, and it's blocked on all three. It seems to be the network firewall that’s blocking the new site. If I turn my phone's WiFi off, I can get to the new site without any problem, but when I’m on the network WiFi, I can't.

The strange thing is the network wasn’t blocking the new site at first; I got on and was able to register. But after an hour or so, I couldn’t get through anymore.

Thanks, and let me know if you need more info.

Yeah, I'm really sorry about this (I'm the developer who helped make the new forums). I'd not really seen the registration screen before today and I should have tested it better. I hope the rest of the forums are OK for you to navigate. I do have some accessibility improvements to make, but the zoom at least should work nicely. Be SURE to let me know if you have any other problems with it. We really don't want anyone left out.

Would you be willing to tell me who your ISP is - i.e. who you get your broadband or internet connection from? I'll see if there's some kind of blacklisting happening.

The only reason I've ever seen for getting that repeated message is that the software thinks your email address is in some way not valid. In my case, that's happened a few times because of an inadvertent typo.

But I doubt that's the reason in your case. Have you got a back up email address you can use? (I've got two).

Trying to board, did my registration etc, got an approval but seem caught at the confirmatory email stage - I received a box on the screen asking me to confirm my email address, I clicked the button but 90 minutes later there's still to be the promised email back. Probably a busy period, and given time zones etc there's a bit of a hold-up.

Can I just check, you're doing the registration, and seeing the Thanks You screen, and you have the pop-up that says "You need to confirm your email address" but you've got no email. Is that right?

Can I ask if you have a spam email box (most online email services like Outlook/Hotmail, Yahoo Mail and GMail have this. And if so, have you checked in there? Sometimes automated emails like this get classed as spam.

If you are getting the email and clicking the link and it's the link in the email that's not working let me know as that's a different problem.

Sorry for the difficulties. We'll do all we can to get you in.

There is a delay because an admin will need to approve each registration. We've been trying our best to keep that delay as short as possible.

I can confirm that everyone who has posted problems with the "confirm email" page has been approved. Can you please try again, if just to confirm it's not just that there was an approval delay causing the problem. Let us know if it works, as well as if it doesn't.

That wasn't stupid at all. For years we've been accustomed to them being two separate things and there's nothing in the registration on the new forum that explicitly indicates that they are now one and the same.

I only happened to notice that there was no way to choose a separate display name and guessed that they must have been merged into one, but it would be useful, I think, to make that clear.

I now use my Christian name, which is Cyprian, after the sainted bishop of Carthage.

Yeah, I ran into that, too. It's actually a copy of the Ship's 10 Commandments. (Cute that it's the Terms Of Service.)

The only way I could find to get rid of that was the Escape key. The panel had no other way of closing.

Glitch, I think...

Either a) check your spam folder or b) wait for an admin to wake up.

(Or c) recall whether you put the correct email address in your registration...)

Cheers, Alan and magicroundabout, the return email was nestling in the spam folder.

I can't talk to you today; I talked to two people yesterday.

I'm going to try a back-door member registration, using the email address on your profile here. It should send you an email telling you something useful (I've not done it before, so I've no idea what'll happen!)
Thank you very much. I have received an e-mail with the info in it and several other e-mails with notifications of private messages. I will settle down to work it all out this afternoon. The computer-generated password has only about 6 characters so that was slightly puzzling, but I'll see how it works.

I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
