October 15 2013 Update


Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.


Today as of UTC 17:00 we are experiencing some site problems.  We are being flooded with registrations, and it is causing server problems.  This may mean you don't get your emails, and we are having trouble approving all of you.  We hope these problems will be resolved shortly.  Thanks in advance for your patience.

Just a sudden flood of signups.  They read clean, but it's crashing the server.

EMAILS

Our hosting service only gives us 150 outbound emails per hour. The influx of new users has far exceeded that rate.

It remains to be seen whether the excess registration emails will be delivered late, or if they're being discarded by the hosting service. If you don't receive your registration email in the next few hours, you can try requesting a new password.

Of course, if our outbound email is still throttled, that may or may not work. Please be patient, and give an hour or two for the email to arrive. If it still doesn't, you can try requesting yet another new password. Please be gentle, though — we've got an awful lot of new members signing up and the site is reeling under the load.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

I got in

I got my email in less than an hour, good job!

I have already assign my password but I cannot see the download link for LightZone. Is there another step I'm missing?

Can't wait to try LightZone, watch a few videos on YouTube and it looks good!

Yep, Lifehacker

Lifehacker sent me here also. My guess is that's a part of the traffic spike.

Patience, young Grasshopper.

Patience, young Grasshopper.  The DL link will show once the admins get through the influx of registrations, and weed out the SpamBots from the RealPeople.  :)
