Being registered and logged in gives you several benefits:
- you have a persistent profile on the site, people will recognize you and you help building a community
- you can use notifications
- you can send and receive personal messages
- some features could be available only if you are logged in
- some sections of the site could be available only if logged in

If you are unable to perform actions on our site such as post a message or some admin functions, and use Norton firewall services. Sorry about this but it is actually just a conflict between two secure systems.

Xoops, Traction Time's website software checks by referers, which means:

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way, the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click www.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.

So you will need to add us to Norton.

If you are using Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2003 please follow the following steps to create a rule:

Xoops checks by referers, and if you use other firewall software, you need check the manual for this.

How to pass referer information to specific Web pages in Norton Internet Security or Norton Personal Firewall 2003

When you click a Web page, your browser notes the current page that you are on and sends that information to the server of the new Web page. This way, the server for the new Web page knows the last Web page that you viewed. For example, if you are on www.symantec.com and click www.microsoft.com, the browser sends www.microsoft.com the information that you are currently viewing www.symantec.com. If you block referer information, the server of the page you are requesting to see does not know what page you saw last. By default, Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) blocks this information. However, some Web pages require this information before allowing you to view the page. If you need to allow referer information to pass to a particular Web page, you must create a rule for it.


To create a rule:

1. Open NIS or NPF.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Internet Security or Personal Firewall. This step is not always needed.
4. Click the Web Content tab.
5. Click Add Site. A new site/domain box appears. Enter the name of the site that you want to receive the referer information and click OK. In this example, it will be www.symantec.com.
6. The site name appears in the left frame of the Options window.
7. Click the name of the new site.
8. Click the Global Settings tab.
9. In the \"Information about visited sites\" section, uncheck \"Use default settings\".
10. Click Permit.

First of all you have to make sure that you completed the registration. If did not click the Finish button in the second step of the registration process then the registration did not take place and you will not get an account activation email. Please go back and register again.

If you are sure that you completed you registration then you may want to wait a bit longer for the email. Sometimes it takes quite a while (several hours) for an email to reach its destination. It all depends on the current network conditions and where exactly the source and destination computers are.

If you still don't receive the activation email by next day then most likely you did not type in a proper email address or the message did not reach you for some other reason (your mailbox was full, one of the mail servers falsely identified the message as spam, etc.). Do not register again, try to contact the web master or one of the moderators and ask for help. Tell them the exact user name and email address you have user. Don't send them your password.
