Yea, it does take a while. I had signed up a few years ago, and didn't post much. Went back recently (since everyone left these forums) and had to ping the admin to reactivate my login. It found me, but lost my post history. Oh well... at least it worked.
I wonder why these forums are so slow in general. Im a computer geek and like the fast paced information lol. These forums are almost too slow for me. Im on many other forums for my other hobbies and its almost hard to keep up.
