Hello all,

I am a new member here. I am wondering why every time I've trying registering on here it says 'the administrator has banned your email address.' Therefore I had to create a whole new email just to sign up.

I have a ymail account (yahoo). But I created a gmail account for this. I assumed it just didn't like yahoo or something. Anyways...I then tried editing my email address after I registered with the new gmail account...and it still said it was banned.

Does anyone know why this is? Or how I can fix it?

Not sure why but can you give us the email address that was "banned"?

Oh, I figured it out...
It's the ending of your email address (@ymail.com) that is banned, not anything you did.
Our forum server has a list of email address endings that are banned, I'm guessing because some of these endings are more often than not from spamming accounts.

If you want, I can ask the admin to allow your email ending onto the forum, and then you should be able to change your email from your user profile.
