    Are you using a gmail account for email?
    Because at b5tv.com:
    Gmail email addresses banned
    Due to Google's failure to secure its email systems against abuse, our messageboard systems are under continual attack from Gmail users. To this end we have had to regrettably ban Gmail/Googlemail users from subscribing to our messageboard.

    Don't worry, you can still join
    The easiest way is to use a non-Google email account to subscribe to our messageboard. Please use an email address such as one provided by your ISP, university, employer or Hotmail. Please click here to register with it in the normal way.

    Don't have another email?
    We will consider new accounts for Gmail users if you have NO other email address available to you. Please email @b5tv.com stating your required username. This process is not automatic, and we reserve the right to refuse applications we believe to be fradulent. Otherwise If you have a non-Google email address, please click here to register with it in the normal way.

    We are sorry this action must be taken, but until Google takes reponsibilty for the security of its systems we have no other choice but to protect ourselves and our users from malicious behaviour.

    Note: this does not affect existing users.

    I don't know what to do. The password for the new account I setup no longer works. I have gotten no emails and I can now no longer check the PMs I was getting there.

    Antony advises that he worked on the registration system. This is a test. I assume it works.

    Please let anyone know...anywhere, that we can be registered at again.
    It appears that you are now able to register at B5TV.com.

    I am trying to resolve the login issues, which have prevented new people from joining. So far, the Rim is off a bit.

    Nice seeing some old-timers around the place.

    Okay so after multiple attempts to reactivate my account I have given up and started from scratch. Since my main email address is already in their system I tried to setup a new account with a different email address. The same basic situation has happened, no email confirmation to activate the account. I have, however, been able to send a few Private Messages. I've sent a couple to Markas over the last couple of days with no luck. I have spoken with Sinclair who tells me Markas isn't checking in very ofter, but was nice enough to let me know that they too would try to contact Markas.

    So does anyone know someone over at B5TV I should contact to try to get this situation resolved?

    not after the last time.
    Hey I did the time for "the last time." I thought we moved past this already. Life goes on! I made a horrible, horrible mistake, but I thought that was what it was going to take to "keep the lights on." I paid for my crime and now I just want to move on.
