I don't have a email address. I attempted to sign up using a fake email address, and apparently that doesn't work. My parents won't let me have a email address, so I don't have one. Since a email is out of the question, please tell me if you can fix it so I can sign up without it. I hope you can, because I would enjoy being a member of this great forum. Thanks.

use the main one (that came with your ISP). The only e-mail you get is one to activate your account. After that, it is only used to retrieve passwords (i think)

um ya, we've already figured that out. Perhaps you should get another counter in your sig to count useless posts from the day you put up the counter. Happy

Afraid I can't do that. My computer is set up so I can't delete my history, so that doesn't work. Crying Ahh gawd. Anyhow, maybe I can use Dogbreaths e-mail address to sign up, and then just change my password so he wouldn't know my password. If so, then somehow my screwed up member account "The Duke" has to be deleted so I can open a new account with the same name.

You can't register with the same email account that some one else has. Also, when you change it (I did when I got my hotmail) it closes your account and resends the confirmation email to the new address, so if it's fake, you can't sign up. And I said it before (or someone else did) to just use your main EMail address. Your @attbi.com one or something. Just delete the email when you get it, after clicking the link. It's not that hard.

Another idea: Sign up for hotmail from another computer, like a school one, then sign up for the forum. Then you don't have to worry about it again.

I'm sorry, but the board won't let you use my e-mail address to sign up. Even if it did, I would still refuse as the board would consider *you* to be *me* and send me all announcements/warnings that would otherwise be directed to you.

On the other hand, I could create an e-mail address for you to use so long as you would promise not to use it to make death-threats or whatnot that would allow the authorities to track it back to me.

LOL!! Laughing Laughing Jeez, thats funny. Anyhow, yeah I promise not to. And yeah you can go ahead and get me a address. Thanks. Then how do I get rid of the 'member' The Duke that was added when I attempted to sign up with a fake email? Its still there, and I cant make a new member with the same name.
