In-case anyone had issues with verification emails (for old or new accounts). The email server has been fixed. For some reason when it went down last time it started to fail silently (from October 10th :O). Everything has been reset now so if anyone was lurking and wanted to create an account, you can do it now!
Maintaining a website is hard and not our strong point
I just made an account here (finally)
I had to tap the resend email button once before it arrived.
