    You must verify your email address before you can join a fan club. A verification email was just sent.


    Email Address: <snipped>

    There are two ways to complete the process, either:

    click the link in the Email when it arrives
    or enter the verification code from the email in the box below
    Verification Code:

      It said that I changed my e-mail address and I have not.  The verification code came in the same e-mail address that I have always had too.  Is this phishing?

    Lady Guinevere:

    I am sending you an email so we can clear this up.  Snipped your email address above, as it's never a good idea to leave such information in the open.

    Maddie, could you write an explanation here on the forum by chance? I also received the same message and just entered the emailed code, but I never changed my email. I just assumed it was for security purposes or simply to update records.

      We recently added the requirement that you validate your email address before joining someone's fan's club, so if you never verified your email address before, that's what's triggering this now.  We're hoping this cuts down on the number of spammers (with fake email addresses, often) who join a lot of fan clubs just to get backlinks and reciprocal fans.

    Ahh thanks. I'm all for cutting down on the spam.

    I'm curious- does this happen every time I join a fan club or just once?

      A lot of mine were from the last post thread. Maddie won it by the way when she had to close it. it was slowing the site down. I noticed the slowdown, but didn't know we were causing it on that thread until they figured it out.
