    Hi Peter
    There is a request for a Militaria section if at all possible.

    looking at the forum listing; is there a setting or way to have the categories in alphabetical order on the main Forums page?

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    Hi, Tallcakes --

    I see three very broad categories, and then under each category there is a list of categories, all in alphabetical order. Are you asking whether the larger categories can be eliminated, and everything interfiled?

    yes there are 3 major categories, which seems relevant to me; but the subcategories under these three main categories are not coming up alphabetically ordered for me. Which is why I ask if there is a setting somewhere?

    You're right... I thought they were in alpha order but hadn't noticed that they are not. I'm not having a problem with it, but suppose that if they add more topics that might be an issue for me, too.

    Peter, thanks from me, too, for setting up this site. It's already feeling like a really nice place to roost. :)

    I bet I just need to post for a while before I can create a thread. I'm thinking that is the way it works over on the coin site. I'll play with it. Thanks.

    I'm getting a notice that I do not have sufficient privileges to post. How can I overcome this? Apparently my account does not need reconfirmation. Help?

    I signed up also but I continue to see the message that my email needs confirmed and I have never received the confirmation email. I checked my address and it was correct, I initially used my work address so I changed it to my gmail address to make sure that wasn't the issue but still have never received the confirmation. Thanks for any advice you have. I also sent a message to the "contact us" link, so sorry if this is a duplicate question. Thanks again!

    The forum software automatically sends the request for email confirmation when a new member registers. And if that member ask that another request for confirmation be sent to them because they didn't get the 1st one, then the software automatically sends you another one. Point is - the emails are sent !

    But here's the issue - if you didn't get the 1st one, you're not going to get any others either. And this applies to everyone who has this problem.

    What happens is this. The emails are being sent to you, but they are simply not getting to you. Why ? There are several possible reasons.
    1 - the emails may be in your SPAM folder.
    2 - your email provider may be blocking emails from Antiquers because they think the emails are SPAM.
    3 - the email program (software) that you use may be blocking emails from Antiquers because that program thinks the emails are SPAM.
    4 - you may inadvertently be the reason yourself because of the settings you are using on your email program.
    5 - it may be the anti-virus or security software you are using, and or the settings you chose when you set that program up.

    Any and all of these may be the reason the emails do not get to you. And not a single one of them have anything to do with Antiquers, nor can the Antiquers staff do anything to correct the problem because quite simply - we do not have any control over any of that.

    The only person who can fix the problem is you, the member, the person who is having the problem. And if the problem is being caused by reason #2 or #3 even you can't fix it because you don't have any control over those. But you can fix the problem if any of the other 3 are the cause. And no, I can't help you figure it out - only you have ability to figure it out because only you have access to all the settings you have to check to be able to figure it out.

    But what you can do is this - you can choose to use Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo - they all work. Members who use them do not have problems getting emails from Antiquers.

    And if you don't like having more than 1 email address to check every day well that's pretty easy to manage too. Just have emails sent to your new email address forwarded to the email address you like to use. Then all your emails end up in one place.

    Well..... pretty much, but I haven't gotten new email from the site in days, and I have a Gmail box. It's not in my spam trap either. Generally however it gets though.

    This is about confirmation emails when registering.

    Yep, but just sayin'. I think Gmail sometimes eats things too.
