Registration and setup
I can’t seem to register. What’s going on?
It may be that you don't have cookies enabled on your browser. Here are some instructions for addressing this: http://www.google.com/cookies.html Another possibility: You're entering information that is too long. If you're getting an error message like, “String or binary data would be truncated” when you try to register, try a shorter username.
I register, then try to post a message and am told my username can't be found. But when I try to re-register, I'm told my info is already in use. What's going on?
You didn't complete the registration process. When you sign up, we send you an e-mail to verify that you're using a legitimate address. You have to click on the link in that e-mail in order to complete the registration process and begin posting. If you can't find the e-mail in your inbox, check your spam or junk mail folder. Sometimes it lands there.
If it's been a while since you signed up and the e-mail is nowhere to be found, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the approximate date that you signed up, and the e-mail address you used on our registration form.
Now I want to correct the mailing address I supplied at registration. How do I do that?
On any page of the site, click on “My Mom2Mom Settings” in the upper right-hand corner. This takes you to your profile, where you can change your address.
