Yep. Since VerticalScope seems to have taken over, things have gone downhill. Their services are pretty terrible. Not sure how they got as big as they are.

We forum users and the forums themselves are just vehicles for raking in advertising money no doubt.

Merimat, I'm assuming you checked your spam folder? If there are problems with email servers, that can delay things. If I recall from my days of running an email server, the timeout can be about 3 days.

I have no clue what my password is. I can't change it from the one that was issued after the idiotic password change. This is a great site, far better than agtalk with a lot less bullcrap to bad its run by what seems to be a pack of untrained monkeys.

I didn't change mine either after the reset. That way I can just search my email for it if I ever get logged out.
Forum is decent. The number of ads really slows things down. One of these years might have to get adblock. No excuse for any password issues. One of those bare minimum things a forum has to do.

No I checked my spamn folder Torr theres nothing. Ya guess ill have to bite the bullet and spend the 40 bucks and get rid of the pop ups. I got no idea how my phone lost the password. So had to reregister and I don't have a second email since my day job left so had to use my wifes email (no more grandma porn please Kev, granted some of it is hawt)


lol my whole giant 19 pound tuna. Have yet to catch a monster but theres a couple still swimming around that got off that would worked. Maybe next year)

There are some frustrating technical problems with this site but it is a great place to share ideas. My beef is that when I am typing out a post the system times out and lots of times I lose the whole post. I have to go back out to log in again and that is why the post is no longer saved unless I think to save it. But many times it times out very quickly and once you push the send button there is no going back. My experience sounds different than some of you that don't sign out. Mine times out it seems in well under an hour.

Don't give this dumpster fire of a forum host 40 bones for these "services" and to just remove ads. Switch to something like firefox and get UBlock Origin.

I disagree, unlike many others who seem to spend a lot of time online on this and other forums, this is the only one I look at regularly and after ponying up those few dollars to become a paid member the benefits for me made it a lot nicer. Everything from message storage and more. But then I suppose some of us have more interactions with members that way than on the public part so then we notice the advantages more so than others. I always run ad blockers, and paying up improved things even over above the blockers as well.
For me guess it works out to less than four dollars a year for the time I have been on here...you can hardly buy a beer for that anymore lol

Highly recommend uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger addons for any common browser. On the phone your options are more limited, but firefox on Android is pretty decent, and both those addons work with it.

Really it's not safe to browse the open web without these two plugins.
