EKN v2.1 Update: We are activating all the forum registrations that come in, so even if you don’t receive the activation link and the subsequent confirmation email, you should be good to go. Just wait a little, and trying logging in. We are working away and diagnosing the lack of email confirmations. We’re getting there!

I do have questions: Is there any way to PM/contact a user of the old forum? Many less-frequent users of EKN may not sign on here for a while, and for some of those, it was the only way we communicated. It could be months before they sign on to the new one.
Second, it appears as though I can’t even open my own old PM sections, and some of those had contact information I thought I’d not be needing. The old forum is still available to read, but there is no way to log on to it and retrieve anything that was in personal files, that I can find.
Rob, I know why activation e-mails going to spam folders (at least on gmail).
Response is too generic, same for everybody with exception of activation key.
If you add at least username or a little personalization (since you know the address (state, city, full name, etc.)), e-mails will not be filtered out by spam detectors.
It will take some time, because your mail server IP is most likely in black list of spamcop and/or others.
There some more issues:
– when I click on link in e-mail, it just shows page where I have to enter key (so key= parameter is lost or my account activated but response is wrong). I input key twice with same page displayed.
I tried to login and entered correct captcha and password. It errored out and presented slightly different page to login. I entered same password again and captcha and this time was successful.
And my 0.02c. WordPress is mostly platform for simple bloggers websites. You will have troubles with load since you have much more going on on EKN.
