Hi there,

I need some help please. I registered a few days ago with my usual name "Zionwarez" but I didn't receive the confirmation email. I clicked on the button to resend it several times, I checked the spam folder (which is empty), nothing. I just don't get the confirmation email no matter what I do. So I registered again with another email adress and this worked - finally.

Please, can any admin help me? Either change my name to Zionwarez (and delete the other account of course) or give me the confirmation email to my other email account.

Thanks,
Zion

Nothing?

So this forum does not have any admins?

Sadly, there are a number of back end issues that seem to be unsolvable due to the fact that the forum used to be run by another group and they won't give full control of the servers to the new moderation team.

You might be able to change the name of your account in settings so that this account has the right name? Otherwise I'm not sure.

Thank you. Finally a reaction :-)
Unfortunately, I can't choose my original name, cause I tried already to make an account with this name, but never got the confirmation email. So I can't delete it either.
Sad....

I mean if you want the inside poop: there has always been a lot of drama associated with the indie dev scene, including this forum and people leaving in a huff because of one reason or another. People tend to rise to the top who are good at "saying the right thing" and "charming the powerful" which is sort of a sociopathic trait: even though your own feelings don't agree with a person, they are powerful so you kiss up.

As a result, a lot of the people who are big names are sort of unpleasant people. That's not just indie games, that's the world we live in. Then the big people of the world don't have a reason to talk to or "charm" the people they consider small and its just rough.

Also the admins aren't getting paid or really getting any perks of being admins, other than occasional rants from me about how the big shots should be nicer, which I'm sure they enjoy thoroughly. For a while Derek Yu used his position as an admin to promote Spelunky but once his game was done he was also done with being an admin here too.
