AnonymousI agree that it would be better for people not to be anonymous. However, I applied for membership to this forum over two weeks ago, and have still not received an acceptance e-mail - and yes, I have checked my Spam and everything. So why should such a simple procedure take so long? Is there a long waiting list or something?

It should not take more than five minutes.

Please post in the "Help" section with the name you registered, and an admin will take a look.

There must be something wrong with your registration. It takes me just a few minutes. Why don't you try again.

may be because we feel emabarresed when we ask easy or over-repeated questions!

AnonymousI have registered before posting a question, however, firstly I followed links on the website expection it to prompt me to log in should it not recognise my IP address (as most websites do, ie ebay). Secondly, I just replied to a question but didn't log in as I can't remember the login name i gave. Still working that out! Dave Phillips

I did work it out. I'm glad I did register.

To all you Anons out there it is worth registering as it is free, not only that you get recognised and also have some motivation to help others. I joined a few months ago and with the help of the volunteers on this site qualified as a teacher. I now help answer your questions and learn from doing that. I also am respected as part of the forum and get help from other teachers and experienced speakers.

Anonymous:
Kinda funny that I'm replying as anonymous on such a thread, but I do have something to add. I hardly ever use such a form and for the once a year I really could use help from a community such as this I'll do a google search for something like "Grammar forum", and if the forum that comes up allows making ananymous posts I suppose it's just easier to do. But I can understand how that could be annoying Emotion: smile

PS I think the reason you're seeing so many lately is because it's college app time.
Anonymous I hardly ever use such a forum . . . . if the forum that comes up allows making anonymous posts I suppose it's just easier to do.

Why be anonymous?

Because I like to dance around naked, and would hate my history teacher to recognise me.
