I used to use this forum back around year 2000-ish when it was delphi-based.

Still the same forum?

No, it is phpBB based.

Last time I tried to make an account for the forums, there was a problem that most people had. I saw one person was able to fix it by going into the IRC and getting help. I'd do the same if this happens again, but I've never actually used IRC before...

 

EDIT: This time, it is allowing me to register, however, being a minor, it shows I have to have one of my parents sign slip sent to me via E-mail. I'm perfectly fine with that, but it doesn't show where to mail/fax it to. I'm assuming the "We're sorry, but we are not accepting registrations from minors under the age of 13 years old." statement can be ignored, considering I'm 14. If someone could get back to me on this problem, it'd be much appreciated. If you guys need more information, just PM or E-mail me please.

I would love to use the forums, but it won't let me login, even though I can login fine to the site proper (as in to make this post). And trying your tech support has been totally useless.

Any suggestions?

There is no user under the username, "Darth Do'Urden"

You will have to register as a new account.

Tried to register as a new account. Can't use my email addess because it says that it's already in use. Same with the screen name. So the system recognizes me enough to NOT let me register or use the forums.... Awesome.

If you don't want to just use one of your alternate e-mail addresses to register, e-mail me the e-mail address of your previously registered account.  Send it to chamsalot-at-maximumpc.com.

Why isn't there a forum link up at the top?

There is, on the second line of the menu.

Just click the highlighted "official forum" in the first sentence.

Query: Why do I have to log in to the forum and the site individually?

For being a Tech company you guys seem to have problems with basic things. (Links to other pages disappearing, not having a dedicated site for MT until recently, etc)

Oh and the Post to Facebook "feature" should be opt-in not opt-out or at least have it remember my choice.

I have a permanent ban from the forums. I honestly don't know why. My name is not in the thread of banned names. Can an admin shed light on why I'm banned?

avatar

Looks like you may have been banned for posting answers to an online contest back in October 2009.  I think you've served your time, so I lifted the ban.  Enjoy the forum.

Just a small sugestion, what if you add a "For Sale" thread? That way people that are always upgrading to the "best". Some people may want to sell or trade their old gear? 

What do you folks think about a for sale/trade thread? and Of course make rules of what you are not allowed to sell and stuff like that.

Jessberto,

There is an "Appraisal" forum where you can get appraisals from other users as to the value of your wares, or give an appraisal of others' items.  There is no buying and selling on the forum.  What happens in Private Messages between forum members is their own business.

There is one. You just need to be granted access to it.

The reason behind it is because you have to fold only for Team 11108. If not you will not be granted access.
