Re: I registered but why can't I reply to posts or start new threads?

The answer is pretty simple - As with most public forums, our forum also enforces email based activation.

What this means is that when you register you are asked for your email address. Once you complete registration, an email is sent automatically to your email address. It contains a URL you need to click; which in turn activates your account and you have complete privileges like other users.

This step is important to prevent spam and fradulent registrations. We do not sell or reveal your email address to any third party. But we do require a valid email.

Many public email services might put the eCharcha.Com activataion email in your Bulk or Junk mail folder. So please add our domain echarcha.com to your safe sender's list or keep an eye on your Bulk/Junk mail folder after you register.

It is our policy to never change your status to registered if you have not clicked on the URL in the email we sent you. So the moral of the story is - DO NOT REGISTER WITH A FAKE EMAIL ADDRESS.

Thanks,
admin@echarcha.com
