Thumbs up question about admin email I received


Hi there,
I just registered, and the first email sent to me directed me to use an activation id, along with my userid, but after clicking on the provided URL, it just automatically activated my account, as I don't see anywhere to put in my ueserid/activation ID
? Oh well, doesn't look like I need to activate, as I'm able to post fine.
Nice place, hope to learn a lot here. I currently run on Darwin, (20" iMac) OSX, and plan to get more boxes to run Linux, and other BSD variants, but first got to pay off some bills I incurred from my previous marriage. I'll prob. lurk here for awhile before doing a lot of posting, so thanks in advance!!
Robert

I think they just use the activation to confirm the email address you gave is valid.

the activation id is automatically entered in the URL you clicked...

the ID is also given to you in case you dont use an email client that lets you click links,

then you can enter the id manually
