    It sounds like you have made 2 accounts for WC2. The reason why it was one account per email was to reduce the ease of making a sock puppet account.


    Yes, click More Options...
    from there, Preview...
    (both are below your post).

    @RevLindsayKing

    You had set up 5 different accounts each with different emails.
    I have tried to communicate to you by email to all of the emails regarding your issues, but have had no responses.
    If you are able to connect now, you can start a conversation with me, or reply to this thread..

    Linds, when you create an account here, or pretty much any website in the world, the website sends an email to the address you provided during registration. This is to confirm that the account you created really does have the person with that email address behind it. In that email is always a simple link to click to complete this registration process. Do that, and you're in.

    I knew Pinga was working with you on this, and I saw and cleaned up a bunch of extra accounts you created a few weeks ago. Last night, I think, I was doing some housekeeping of accounts, seeing how many spammers we've been banning lately, and noticed this new account of yours. Again, uou had not clicked the link in the email, so your account was "awaiting validation". Knowing your history, I validated it manually for you, but I forgot to let Pinga and Mendalla know.

    I'm sorry, Linds, but there is nothing more difficult about registering for WC2 than any other website. If you are not getting the emails, then it's just you not getrtng them, and I can't explain that.

    And we've been over this, but the inflated view count od your Science a go go thread is due to multiple search engine spiders crawling all the pages every time you bump it, which has been daily or weekly, for years. The vast, vast majority of those numbers are not from real people.

    not knowing the background on this ... I wonder if perhaps the distinction between logging in & registering was confusing for RevKing? Perhaps on returning & needing to log in, the register function was used instead, causing multiple accounts & confusion.

    I'll paste this from another thread:

    How to Log In

    Look at the top right corner, if you're in already, your user name will appear, along with Inbox and Alerts.
    If you aren't signed in, click the Log in or Sign up link on the top right hand corner. Near the top of the page, you should have the option of:
    Do you already have an account?
    • No, create an account now.
    • Yes, my password is:
    Make sure the second option is selected if you already have an account. Enter your username and password. You may also want to check the Stay logged in box. Click the red Log In button.

    I've covered this here:
    http://wondercafe2.ca/index.php?threads/profiles-privacy.52/#post-506
    Click on your username in the upper right hand corner to go to your profile settings. From there, on the left hand side you can click signature; it's 2nd under settings.

    You can also get to the signature by hovering over your username in the top right hand corner and selecting signature.

    I am hopelessly ($@#) lost (at the present time). I do hold out hope that a person such as myself can learn this "blogging?". may God bless as GOOD FRIDAY and the church business goes on. when I type and/or say "Christ on the cross" it seems a sacrlidge although the words (must?) may be said.

    Welcome Hilton. How can we help you figure out the posting? The poster here named @ChemGal is a great resource.

    We don't have a blog section. Some people do link to their blogs on other sites.
    If you just want to share some thoughts that don't fit with another thread, feel free to start your own! Just go to the appropriate section, for example Religion and Faith and in the top right hand corner click the Post New Thread red button.

    Hopefully we'll see you back soon and the info above helps!

    Yes, I liked the post you made on my profile.
    You get points with trophies http://www.wondercafe2.ca/index.php?help/trophies
    You got one trophy with your first post. You should get a trophy for the like to, although it might only work on the forums, not profiles. That's never come up before!

    "What (the *) is a point?" That's an excellent question hilton. Some of us have now spent years here wondering what the * the point is.

    I do not know who I am typing to. Also some where in my travels in the WONDER/CAFE(WC) I came across something that said "5-members... 3-robots...." or words to that effect. to pr.jae; thank you for your reply. we do not know what (the *) a point is and please don't tell me there are robots in the (*) WC (! or?). I hope I get 5-6 good points. have a respectful EASTER. (capitals mean nothing)>

    You're typing to whoever reads :)
    Certain pages - home, forums, members - shows who is on the site currently. Robots are things like Google, so that the website shows up on search results.
    Have a great Easter!

    I hope I am not on "live" because I am swearing and am not a robot. I know what "google" is. Can people go on this WONDER/CAFE (WC) "live".

    You are "live" to the extent that everything you post is visible to anyone, member or not, who visits as soon you hit "Post Reply". It is not a chat engine, though, like Skype or Yahoo Messenger where everything is "real time" and a conversation ends at some point.

    Google and other search engines (Bing, Baidu, etc.) use programs called "robots" or "spiders" to collect data from websites so that you can search those websites in the search engine. Yes, all your posts will get indexed and come up if someone searches for them.

    And welcome! Hope our posts are helping and keep asking if you need more info. We are friendly and don't bite (well, there's @chansen but we keep him on a leash :D).
