House keeping reminders for The Batavian
If you look at the people page, you'll note that we list only 318 members. I don't have an exact count, but we're past that. There's some software glich preventing an accurate count from appearing. Our engineers will look into it soon.
Account confirmations: But speaking of members -- we've had at least 100 people sign up for accounts, some multiple times, but never confirm their account.
You must confirm your account in order to post anything. When you sign up, an e-mail is sent to you and you must click on the link in that e-mail to confirm your account.
And to be clear, registering for the site is not required if you only want to read what's posted. That said, we hope and encourage everybody to post blog items and make comments, and registration is required for participation.
UPDATE (from Philip): If you are waiting for a confirmation e-mail or trying to retrieve a forgotten password and no e-mail seems to be showing up in your Inbox, check your spam folder. We've had a few folks whose aggressive spam-filter software relegated Batavian mails to the junk bin.
Advertising: If you have a business and are interested in advertising, write to me at howard at thebatavian dot com.
Free Job Ads: If you're an employer, you can post job ads for free. Just click on the "Jobs" tab above and follow the directions from there.
Free Classifieds: Any private person can post free "Buy, Sell or Trade" ads. To post, click the "Buy, Sell, Trade" link above and follow the directions. Pictures are allowed with these posts. Just make sure the picture is no wider than 470 pixels.
