Just wondering if this is happening to anyone else in here who has tried to join the Eidos Imperial Glory forums, or if someone on here can put me in touch with one of the Eidos IG moderators.

I have tried on multiple occasions now to join the Eidos forums with legitimate email addresses and numeorus varieties of username and password. I can login with a created username and password, but I never receive the activation email which lets me post and reply on the forums. I have checked my various email accounts and they are all working OK and I can sign up to other forums - like this one Smile - so there only appears to be a problem with Eidos. Can anyone help ??

You're on the right place! Both me and @m can take care of it for you.
You only have to tell us which account you want to have activated?

Hi

Thanks for getting in touch so quickly! I used the Broadside username on the Eidos IG forum too - could you activate that account for me ?

I can't activate it myself directly, but I've posted a message in the moderator forum section. It should be working soon.

Thanks - no luck yet. Will they need any extra info. such as password and email or can they activate it with just the username ? I have PM'd you my email address in case they want to contact me.

Nope they don't need anymore info, they'll activate it as soon as possible. No need to send them more stuff or so ,they can see it for thereselves that your account doesn't work.

Just noticed the Eidos thread below. Looks like I am not the only one ! Surely they would have realised by now that there are tons of unactivated accounts and a rather limited number of the same posters over on their forum - weird Confused

The people at Eidos are not so consumer minded Smile

they produced too many crappy games and not listening to us.. which resulted in a taken over..

mailed the marketing department .. received no reply back.. who knows..

when this game fails... Eidos will have a hard time... but I am very optimistic.. and I hope this game will be good....

my checklist has given me a green light for some major gaming tomorrow... wine, cheese and knabbelnoten.. wife is informed to keep her hands of me.. and that I cannot hear the kids screaming for whatever...

nothing can go wrong.. phone will be off the hook... doors are bolted shut... got myself an extra pack of siggies....

I am ready to dive in...

About 14 000. And no mailing the company that took over is not going to get anything done as far as I know there are no admins from there. Have patience the admins will get your accounts sorted. And yes it's a bug in the forum software that they're aware of but it's the problem of the developers (vBulletin) who still haven't been able to fix this. If you read up a little bit you'll know that the forum software we use is of the best, well coded not full of useless features and free. One wonders why yet so many people insist on having vBulletin. As long as you don't have to many users the performance of vBulleting might be ok but if you have a look at the forums of Somethingawful someone needs to recode sloppy code of vB on a regular basis.

Maybe when phpBB comes out with version 3 more people will use it. Wink

I'm having the same trouble too; I can log on (as ShellShock) but I can't post, and I've never received an activation e-mail. I would e-mail the moderators at the official site if I knew the right address.

Can anyone help please?

Well you won't have to wait that long, from you we know there's a problem so it can be fixed.

ShellShock, passed it on.

christ, no wonder this game is basically dead

14,000 unactivated accounts of people who tried to sign up but didn't get confirmed.

make that 14,001.

unbelievable.

it's a shame too, this game is a good one, has good potential for a thriving mod community, look at RTW's, and it is half as moddable - easier to mod, but less to mod.

I'd be grateful if I could be flagged and authed
