If you are unable to register for an account, or if you are unable to access your account for any reason, you may contact me either at my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook Page, and I'll try to resolve whatever the problem is. Facebook is the preferred choice, if you have a Facebook account, in that your message is less likely to be lost. If your Registration is not approved, the most likely problem is that 1) the email address or ISP used is listed in a forum spam registry we use or 2) you did not use a FIRST and a LAST name when registering for an account. Sometimes I will approve a registration for an account using a handle or just a first name, and ask them to change it later. Generally, I will do that when I have a good reason to believe that an actual person is trying to register for an account, but so many of these registrants are spam accounts that I will often just deny the ones using common spam email addresses, such as gmail.com or aol.com and who are not using a first and last name. No, there is nothing wrong with using a gmail.com or aol.com email address, and there is no need to change your email address if you have an account here, but when that is combined with other factors, such as the use of a handle, when the registration page asks for a first and a last name, then it has the appearance of a spam account, and we get a lot of those. We don't ban a lot of people here and, except for spammers, bans usually last only a month. At this time, no one is on our ban list. If you have been banned, our goal is to get you back as a contributing member of the forum and, by that, I mean contributing posts and threads, not money. To that end, I am not averse to shortening the length of a ban. Don't be afraid to ask. If you are emailing me, please include "SENIORSonly Club" or "Seniors Only Club" in the subject line so that I don't inadvertently delete your email, thinking that it's spam or junk mail.
