Email Verification Help

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

IMPORTANT: The Public Suggestion Box is NOT for discussing issues with the Review Team. If you are a reviewer and need help, please first check the Review Team Page and then if you still need help use the Review Team Support Forum. If you are an author and need help, please first check the Author Dashboard and if that does not resolve your issue use the private contact form. For reference, there is a contact link on every page of the website.

---

To ensure the above procedures are used, posts by new members in the Suggestion Box will be held for moderation.

There are over 240,000 members at OnlineBookClub.org. Following the proper procedures to get help or make suggestions actually helps us help you much faster.
Forum rules
Please do not discuss issues related to the Review Team in the Public Suggestion Box, as we prefer to deal with Review Team issues privately. If you have an issue or question related to the Review Team, please first check either the Author Dashboard (if you are an author or publisher) or check the Review Team Page (if you are a reviewer). If you are a reviewer and you have a suggestion, you can post that in the special private Review Team Support Forum.

I've received an email on Yahoo from donotreply, but it wasn't the verification email. I've requested a resend but still nothing received.

I click on the verification link and get the following error:
"The forums(.)onlinebookclub(.)org page isn’t working
forums(.)onlinebookclub(.)org is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500"
I have tried "Resend verification email", click the link again, and get the same error.

I've received the e-mail but when I click the link and it brings me back to the site it keeps saying that I haven't verified yet. How do I get it to verify?

@littlelady131 What are you trying to verify it for? Are you sure you are logged in under the same email address/account you are trying to verify?

I am not receiving the email to verify my email address. I double checked and realized that somehow I did not put down the right email but I am unsure where to go to change my email address. Could someone please tell me where to go so that I can fix it?

New members and those who are authors can't change their own email, however @"gali" should be able to help you. You'll need to use the moderators contact form, found here, to provide your correct email :tiphat:

Latest Review: "Raven's Peak" by Lincoln Cole

Post by lolashoes »

Is it normal that even after I've verified my email, the 'resend verification email' button is still showing under my RT tab? I've hit the resend button and confirmed my email twice hoping the button will disappear on my profile, I've also logged out/logged back in to see if it helps but well, it's still there. Any tips?
