I have set up a separate site for issues with the Veterans Administration. I don't necessarily want to discourage folks from posting their VA issues on this site. However, I thought to set up a separate site to better address VA specific issues.

This is a new site and, like all sites of this nature, its success or failure will depend on the utility of the site. If it is helpful, it will thrive and I will continue to support it. If not, then it will have just be an effort to try to help Veterans to have a forum for information and a place to discuss their issues. Hope it is helpful: Veterans Advocate

Can you try again? This is a different software than this site, so it will likely have some growing pains. I did not require age publication, but this is very common for many sites because of legal issues with those under age 13 signing up. I think I just disabled this, but can't tell unless people respond. Same for the email verification, I think I just disabled this requirement. Thanks for the feedback and the help!

BTW, this site has newer, but in many ways better, software. I am interested in what people think about the software and may change PEBFORUM to run on this new XENFORO software. Input is welcome!

As far as age, registering with this was "default", but I think, not required....as far as email confirmation, one thought is that these things run on what is called "chron jobs." This means that there may be a lag between what is input and its reflection on the site. That is because the site does checks and updates every so many minutes.

Can you check your spam folder? You are showing as registered but awaiting email confirmation.

I tried to register on your new site from my Gov. computer but access was denied. I could look through some of the site but not all. I will have to check it out when I get off work.

That happens with allot of sites. It (gov firewall) screens for keyword in the address line.


Oh Jason I don't get the email either... I think your site is still broken...

I have changed the registration set up to not require email confirmation. Hopefully, that fixes the problem....with nwlivewire, I could see her pending registration. Not sure what is going on, spinal, but I don't see anything on your registration. Could you try again? Thanks.

Xeno,

Can you try again? I disabled email verification since you first tried. A few folks have signed up recently, so I am wondering if it is a problem with the settings from before or whether it is a continuing problem.

Jason,
Could you just delete me from the new site. I will try creating a new account. I'm still having troubles as it still asks for e-mail verification and fails.
