unable to log into vector linux website

today i tried registering at the vector linux website and received the usual email, with the instruction "Before you can login, you first need to activate your account. To do so, please follow this link:"
i clicked on the link and it sent me to a webpage that has no clear cut instructions. one of the dialog boxes says "username or email address" another box says "old password:" another box says "new email address" and the last box says "resend activation code" with a button underneath it that probably sends the code. there is no new email address that applies here, but everything else there i tried to "wing it".
i tried putting in my username, old password, put in the activation code that was in the email. i re-entered my email address. below is an attachment of the response when i click to resend activation code.
i even tried just putting in my username and password in the login at the forum page. according to the email from vector, i am already registered. i just cant log in.
i figured maybe some of you folks here are also members over there as well and i might be given an opportunity to log in there. i cant post about my problem there because i cant log in.

Looks as if you may need to check the validation email received from Vector and follow instructions (e.g. copy and paste the specific URL given into your browser's address line and go there) before your email address will be recognized as valid.

it worked!
i remember hearing about a guy having the same kind of problem on a computer radio show and solving it that way, then you made the suggestion. i thought "hey, you know what, this might work". somehow there's a difference.
the admin at the vector forum has been diligently trying to help me and now he can add this possible solution as things to try. i informed him about this solution (this is one i will remember as well).
