The forum has a spambot account filter that catches a few new account signups each day, and holds them in limbo. I cross-reference the registered e-mails of these "limbo-fied" accounts to the player database. If the address registered with the forum matches the address registered for an active game family, then I approve and activate the forum account. If not, then I generally ignore them as spammers.

So I'm assuming you did not find the email with the description I gave. However now I have his email adress and will send it to both of you : )

That email doesn't show up on either the forum or the game's list of pending members.

He may need to try again, so we can approve him. Or be more specific about exactly what error he's getting.

I'm fairly certain I deleted the pending forum account after the associated game account had no family, and then disappeared altogether.

Well he had made a game account, but it didn't work so he tried making a forum account to find out why and as Indirik said, it was deleted, and he says (to me) he has given up for now but might try again later. I've linked him this topic anyway.
