Forum:Email confirmation failure

Tolkien Gateway > Council > Email confirmation failure


I have specificed a valid email address, but for some reason the email confirmation won't work. Should email confirmation be required to edit pages?  Myrtonos  forum  c   ec  08:09, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

This is a known problem. See here, here and here (incidentally, Special:Emailuser does not work, either). As far as I know, you should have no trouble editing any pages, but, I admit, it is an inconvenience should you, for example, forget your password.
I don't think confirmation e-mail should be required to edit pages, as I think anonymous users should be allowed to edit. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:30, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Another glitch is that each new user account shows up in the user creation log not once but twice. --  Myrtonos  forum  c   ec  05:11, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

There are a number of problems with this wiki. Good observation, I'll add that to the list. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  20:24, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
I just noticed e-mail confirmation is still not working, i.e. it still refuses to recognise a valid e-mail address — Mithrennaith 22:01, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
