Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have a problem viewing something on the page?

Our site takes advantage of a number of modern technologies to allow it to function quickly and to provide a quality user experience across a wide range of devices from desktop computer to mobile phones.

If you are using very old technology (Windows XP, Internet Explorer less than Version 8) you are likely to experience a number of issues. Many of these issues have security implications. Please utilize at least a modern, secure, web browser (Chrome or Firefox are both free).

If you are on a modern system and are unable to operate the site correctly, please contact us and we'll try to address the issue.

I am having trouble activating my account!

All new accounts are sent a verification e-mail to the address used when registering. It is not uncommon for these types of e-mails to land in your "Junk" or "Spam" folders. You should check there first. If available, add "" to your trusted or allowed sendor's list. If you still do not receive your verification e-mail, use the "Contact Us" to send a message and we will manually activate the account within 24 hours.

For those who are trying to register with an AOL email address: AOL regularly considers these types of e-mails to be spam and will block messages from ever being sent to you. WE HIGHLY recommend using a different e-mail address for your account.
