    Convinced a friend of mine to join Kintsugi and she's waiting on her account activation...am I right in thinking it takes a couple days? It's been so long since I joined, I don't remember.

    Iirc, for safety reasons the email doesn't actually send--new accounts (other than subaccounts) are manually approved by Seebs, to make sure that people who have their emails monitored by abusive parents or spouses don't have their joining the forum revealed.

    Ohhh. -Seebs is awful snowed under right now, do you think they'll get round to approving my friend soonish or will it have to wait?

    Try reporting your main post with their username, if you know it. I know they respond to reports faster (because swamped) and knowing which account to look at first would probably be a big help.

    I'm going to ping seebs in the discord (edit: other mods more on top of things than me have pinged seebs in the discord) in case they haven't seen this, but if the account was approved at some point, there isn't usually a mechanic in place for letting people know (since the emails are disabled). The best strategy for your friend would be to just try logging on and seeing if it works, which I know tripped up one of my friends who tried to register a while back :P Sorry for the confusion!

    Yeah, the software can be configured not to send email, but it can't be configured to know that it doesn't send the email.
