Have there been problems lately with registering new members? I have a friend that has been waiting for a couple of weeks now.
Too much spam?
Or is it that people are just on vacation?
Short answer is yes, there have been problems. It boils down to available time on my end, mostly. Summers are always busy for me and this one has been especially demanding with considerable work-related issues the past month or so. And I did sneak a couple quick vacations in, early summer...
OA, PM me a note on your friend who is waiting, please.
I hope to be addressing some things here soon with upgrades and such that will help. Just not enough hours in the day for me to get it done, it seems, so I'll likely be hiring someone to do this work. Not thrilled about that but it looks like the only way it's going to get done at this point.
My apologies for delays on new accounts. Drop me an email if you're waiting and I'll try to get you going. Hint: the more you look like a real person who is sincerely interested in BYT, the more likely you'll be authenticated quicker. It's not a guarantee because sometimes I'm just flat out slow, but it helps. This site is not all I do and my available time here the past couple months has been extremely limited.
