    This is more for the techy guys. For some reason when I try to login from my home computer and I see the notice that a new confirmation code was sent to my email account, I don't receive it. I just tried logging in using my phone and got the same result. I'm using a gmail account. My phone is using Google Chrome and I've tried using both Opera and Firefox on my home computer. I'm concerned that when my work computer needs to update I may not be able to login at all.

    Thoughts?

    Hi Brother WIP, I'm not techy but out of necessity when experiencing the same problem I learned that until I would go up into the upper left corner of the address bar of the email inbox and click the little circle with an arrow that reloads the page the new confirmation code email wouldn't appear unless waited on, and then if I would get impatient and try to get on again before the first code appeared, it was no longer valid and I had to use a second one my request to log on produced. Hope it helps, and the results are near immediate.

    You may also want to check your spam folder of your email. I have been running into this a lot lately where the email from this site will be filtered out as spam by gmail. Even after I try to allow these emails to come through normally.

    Same thing happened to me last week. I hit refresh 5 times before I checked my Spam and found 5 emails with my code. :nag

    Same. It appears our shared host has other customers who have suspicious behaviour.

    Yes, for some reason this site has been reported as spam. I had to add this site as a contact in my contacts list...that seems to have fixed the issue at the moment.
