Hey guys. A friend of mine (Ark) is trying to register here and is unable to get the verification email. He's checked his spam folder and sent the email twice. Any advice?

That sounds sweet... Are y'all planning to do this for each individual new member with the problem, or has it been resolved?

Everybody get on the ark! It's here to save us from the coming flood!
Well... after we keep inventory of their visit. (AKA: Intro topic.) Then again, I'm gonna be shocked if it starts talking....

Jokes aside. How are y'all doing?

Latest registered user WhiteMageMonk is also having issues with his verification e-mail as you can see here (look for my comment) https://www.reddit.com/r/GoldenSun/comments/5lmrb2/im_working_on_2_golden_sun_lost_age_mods/

I wonder why the verification emails keep failing, is it something to do with SMF? I don't understand why it would suddenly break though.

GSAR is having the same problems, so it may be the email host they're using.  What are they using?  @hotmail?  @msn?

Hey, this is starting to become a bigger issue.  I'm getting people saying that they use Gmail and weren't sent a verification email, which leads me to believe one of two things:

One:  Services are straight up deleting the emails because we have the word Hacking in our url and name.  This returns us to the issue of the name - I very much believe we should change it to GSMC, or Golden Sun Modding Community to address this possible issue.

Two:  Verification emails aren't being sent in the first place.  This is a much bigger issue if that's the case - it'd likely mean we'd have to turn off Email Verification all together.

This would also explain why I haven't been receiving reply notification mails for a while

I don't know...

"Golden Sun Hacking Community" ... I can mail that phrase to my gmail account... and I do get mail... so I'm not sure if it is #1 or #2...
Anyone mind actually doing further testing?

e.g. Maybe they block the site sending mail, but not the words?  Assuming that is even a thing?

To verify that it isn't GSHC... you could test emailing to other servers...??? (But even then, how do we know whether they're blocking the emails... or whether it is a simple incompatibility?/etc.)


Either way... I don't want this to be a "reason" for a name change if one were to happen...
As for GSMC... it would be taken by Golden Sun MineCraft if there ever came such a thing.

gmail is what I signed up with and subsequently didn't get the verification email. Even attempting to resend it a couple times didn't help.

As for the name change: why not just shorten the name to the acronym: instead of sending mail from Golden Sun Hacking Community send it from GSHC. Wouldn't that work better since you get to keep the name as well as attempt to troubleshoot the problem?

I found the problem and fixed it, verification and other emails should send successfully now.

I didn't announce it here but I disabled the email requirement for the time until a fix could be found.  Glad to see Atrius still wears the cape.  (I don't know if he re-enabled it but I'll check.)

Great! Thanks Atrius! (What exactly was the problem? If you don't mind me asking?)
Thank you both for giving it some attention.

Quick question, though? Is it really more useful as a requirement? Or is it more useful not having it as a requirement? (Even in the situation where there isn't an error.)

Once upon a time, maybe I thought it made sense... But I've grown to believe there's little point for it to be required... So kinda thinking if it should be discussed.
My vision is that if you give an email, you should confirm it to receive other emails... but it should not affect anything else such as one's ability to post.

Fox: The other theory is it could be coming from Mt. Aleph somehow. Umm..?
Today at 08:36:28 AM
Fox: I not really sure... but if it is appearing right there like that... it almost seems like something targetted... but maybe it could be the presence of artifacts that are high in psynergy.... and maybe one of those was in Isaac's cabin.... (High concentrations of psynergy causes vortexes?)
Today at 08:28:53 AM
Fox: One of the vortexes in a town destroys the bridge... and it looks like the vortex at the end could have destroyed the house (OR maybe have some indirect connection/dunno.), and will probably destroy the bridge the PCs are on as well. :P Umm... 
Today at 08:24:53 AM
Fox: at least* Don't they* have*
Today at 08:24:03 AM
Fox: From what I read. (Or atl et least my interpretation/memory of what I read.) ... Don't think only really appear every 10 years...?  And hve some connection to the mourning moon (Probably what the vortex is at the end.)
Yesterday at 11:46:04 PM
Lord Squirtle: I'm not even sure how that could be advanced unless there is a good reason why they stop showing up.
Yesterday at 11:45:13 PM
Lord Squirtle: I think the vortex stuff basically ends maybe 1/4 into the game, at least until the post-credits scene.
Yesterday at 08:47:52 PM
Fox: (That's assuming we make a remake, and take out any contradictions or altar them a bit to fit in.) ... However, here's the thing... the Vortexes were corrupted, so the solution didn't quite work out. (And there might have been others trying to do the same thing.)
Yesterday at 08:43:49 PM
Fox: Anyway... I don't know much about Dark Dawn... but if I was to advanced the story on the Psynergy Vortexes, I would say that Felix was behind it. - It's like in GS1/GS2... How we were at first led to believe the lighting of lighthouses needed to be stopped... and that flips in GS2.... so I'm going to guess the vortexes is similar.
Yesterday at 08:36:22 PM
Fox: If you search "gstla" (even shorter) ... Rom sites are appearing on page 2. .... Hm...
Yesterday at 08:24:47 PM
Fox: And the main reason I thought that was semi-intersting... because it's basically advertising... "Hey you're looking up this game?" "Well, did you know you could emulate it?" ... to those very few (mostly children) who don't already know. 
Yesterday at 08:22:54 PM
Fox: @ratings spot = I mean of the same rom site.
Yesterday at 08:22:00 PM
Foxno ... I need advanced error checking on my English... it's not enough to have error checking in programming. :P
Yesterday at 08:19:35 PM
Fox: Who knew... that a simple search like "Golden Sun 2" (With [bno[/b] text for "rom" or "download"/etc.)  will have a link to a rom site on the first results page... not to mention having a ratings spot in the right side-bar.
May 24, 2017, 06:49:14 PM
Lord Squirtle: I guess I'll make a topic for the GBA concept room in Dark Dawn soon.
May 24, 2017, 04:27:21 PM
Fox: Yep ... There are many libraries for many languages... Python, etc... And then there are things like  the Google apis - e.g. http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=(whatever you want to search for)
May 24, 2017, 07:46:43 AM
Luna_blade: I can see how XML/JSON are a thing these days.
May 23, 2017, 04:52:18 PM
Fox: Easier in the idea that I can reduce required external stuff where the source code isn't available/modifyable (Well, there is overrides in some cases, but still.) ; So it's possible the only "Events" I would require are those of the Form.... (Mouse Events, Keyboard Events, Paint Events, Etc. when needed.)
May 23, 2017, 04:42:14 PM
Fox: Anyway... I know I am using built-in controls in my current editor, but it is not out-of-the-question that I might just go and make my own custom controls... so that it is actually easier for me (But that'd take a lot of work.)  I'm thinking about one large bitmap object, and just drawing them on it. Problem is, I'm afraid it might not be efficient enough.  So I haven't decided about doing it.)
May 23, 2017, 04:33:28 PM
Fox: @XML = If I recall, I believe Visual Studio uses it for Settings Variables that remain even after you close the program. (e.g. There's one variable I have in my program that I call "LastRom" to make it easier to get back into the program.)
