The Barr Report?


Indeed, I have learnt more from Tom and the team than anywhere else about planted tanks. The good deal is that there seems to be very little personal bias and quite a bit of basic science in the information available. I have had no hesitation what so ever in becoming a paying lifetime member.

Regards,
AR

Well, it takes time to fix things and we have other obligations. I personally am not doing the fixing also. That person has other things going on and is attentive, but over committed.

It's back up.

Default Is the Barr Report Web Site Down Again?

Anyone else having trouble getting to the Barr report at this time? I haven't been able to access it since last night.

Hmm. I am on AquariumLife in Australia and decided to join the Barr Report. I signed up on Monday and did not receive any activation email. I can login and send PMs and reply to thread but cannot start new threads. I have PM'd Tom and he replied back saying Greg will look at the issue. However, I am still stuck in no-mans land.

You just have to wait for Greg to fix it.

Many forums that use that software automatically send validation emails. I'm not sure which option the barrreport uses. About 90% of all the validation emails I have received go into my spam folder. You may want to check there just in case.

Spam filters get many of them.

I can confirm no email received. not in spam folder either.

my concern is I want to purchase the premium account in order to get the newsletters, but am not confident ordering will result in access to those sections.

If you can PM, then PM Greg, I've said this many times. He will take care of it. Spam comes not just on the user's side for the filters, but also from the forum side, we get about 15,000 spams per day. Many register and then post the spam in a thread or a new post. Many of the ISP's are infected with a spam virus that makes tracing the source impossible. So banning ISP's is worthless. Spammers pay people to register and post all day long, 1-2 cents a post etc.
They seem to have no issues getting in and registering and most cannot even speak much English if any.

So I have some doubts as to anything on our end. Still, the resolution is to PM Greg, not me.
