Smoky14,

Your account has not been activated because your Hotmail E-mail address is bouncing back as invalid. To have full access to the Guntalk-Online forums, all members must have a valid email addresses or I will not approve their accounts. If you feel this is in error or you wish to update your email address: You can email me via my profile and send me a new address. I will verify the address, and if valid, approve your membership account.

I regret that this level of membership scrutiny has become necessary, but Spammers and Spam Bots have been steadily attempting to place harmful links within this forum. In order to combat these attempts and protect the membership, I have instituted a higher threshold of security.

A valid email address is necessary to receive messages from the forum. If you select to watch certain threads you will receive autogenerated messages from the software. What happens is, my mailbox receives all messages that cannot be delivered after 4 hours of attempts. Any accounts that have invalid address will be deactivated.

I do not wish to discourage legitimate members, just those who wish to do our membership harm through spamming.

Thank you,
Bullseye

Sorry to be such a pain, will go away if that would help, but would love to stay.

Smoky14,

Your account is showing active. If you are having trouble with the current password, I can give you a new temporary one. The temp password would allow you back in the forum and then you can change the password in your profile to a new one. Also please ensure you're using the user name of "smoky14"; that is with no space between the name and number.

R,
Bullseye

hang-in-there... this forum is worth the effort to get the kinks fixed...
