Admins, god you need to take note that registering to this site is like subscribing to hell. I registered months ago and just could not validate my account for this whole time! I don't remember the precise details but I do remember that I could log in and do nothing further because every other action required my validation. Whenever I tried to validate the account - having the validation email sent to me - I got into a dead end.

Fortunately, I happened to check my spam box today and found out that today I received an email for you saying "hey, we haven't seen you on newgrounds for a while. Just wanted to remind you that you signed up. Oh... And by the way - here's the validation link, we see that you didn't even validate the account." I'm happy that this is behind us though. I'm an observer in newgrounds since I was 8 (now almost 20). Nearly forgot about this site since my registration stalled.

The validation process here is the same as that of:
Kongregate
Addictinggames
Candystand
Blizard
World of warcraft
Guildwars
Msn
Hotmail secondary accounts
Many real life jobs
Forums
Game sites

What are you bitching about again?

I had no problem with registration at all because both my NG account and my email account were created onthe same day, so any email I got, I checked (even the spam).

Who is your email provider and is it web-based or are you using email software that may be doing its own filtering? The problem is that whoever powers your email is putting email from NG in your spambox. We should see about getting that resolved.

Noob with two posts!? Well sorry... Could've been much more have the validation thing got to work in the first place. This issue is no laughing matter there could be dozens if not hundreds of other people with frozen accounts like that. And I would not make an alt account for this because I'm not into managing more than one email box.

I received an email from tomfulp@newgrounds.com today with the validation link, etc... It was in my spam box (gmail), happened to check it today just by a funny coincidence. I can receive your mail just fine. Just that no matter what I did I couldn't get the validation link sent to me at all until I gave up. It's not that the email in my spam box just piled dust in there for months.

Was it a myth that NG used to force user to use Gmail?

We never forced people to use gmail, we just recommended it since we had some bad experiences with AOL blocking our emails back in the day.
