Still having trouble registering on the BFG forum :(

I wasn't sure who to get in touch with but I imagine James is my best bet here. I tried registering again on the site but it tells me that my username "Joel" and email address are already taken. So then, I request to have an activation email re-sent but it's still not in my inbox. Is anybody else having trouble?

Hi Joel,

Just sent you a PM.
Replied :) Thanks very much. If anyone else is having trouble, do let James know, he will get you up and running. Just to let you know, i'm running a hotmail account so try to avoid those if you don't want to have the trouble I had.

Thanks again, James.
