Spammers & Info Trollers - Forum Member information and their experience is a high priority to us. Vagabundos del Mar takes spamming and info trolling seriously; anyone reported for or caught spamming the boards, or providing false registration information to will be immediately banned.
The Vagabundos Forums uses email validation as one method of security; registered Forum Members will receive a validation message
at the Email address provided during Registration. The Registration
process will not be completed until the link in the Email is activated,
or the secondary validation process is followed.
New Registrants will have 5 days to complete the Email validation
process. Those who have not validated their Email account (by clicking
on the validation link in the Registration email sent to the Email
address you provided during Registration), within that time period
will automatically be removed from the Member list.
If you did not receive an Email with a validation link, ensure
that any spam controls or intercept services you may have didn't
inadvertently quarantine the Email message. Vagabundos Members
who encounter any difficulty with the validation process can email
the Forum Administrator with
their Member ID # and information as an alternate form of verification.
Manual validations will be done for Vag Members only - no other
exceptions will be allowed. Keep in mind that manual validation
will not take care of any access problems you are having.
Vag Members Only Forums & Media Galleries
there will be a space provided for you to add your Vag Member ID
#. Once you have completed the Registration process (including
validation) and your Member ID # is verified, your Group affiliation
will be changed from Members to Vag Members. Once your Group affiliation is changed, your permission
settings will allow you access to the Members Only Forums & Galleries.
If you don't remember your Membership # and your ID card is long
gone, just check the latest Chubasco - your number is above your
address on the mailing label. If that's in a "safe place" and unavailable,
fear not - Email the Forum
Administrator with your Name & Address, and we'll find
your number, send it to you, and add it to your Forum account.
Again, you don't need your Vag Member # to Register, only to access
the Members Only areas - if you don't have it readily available,
it can be added later by contacting the Forum Administrator.
The Gallery feature in the Members Only Forums allow Vags to upload
personal digital pictures of Vag events, trips, tours, tournaments,
etc., or whatever else you'd like to share with other Vags into
albums and slideshows so that others can view them.
Email Address Validation / Registration Problems
If you were unable to access the Registration or Login area (Page
not Found errors), or never received a validation Email:
As previously stated, Email addresses not verified within 5 days
of an initial Registration attempt, or Email validations encountering
a null response from a mail server (the address given wasn't accepted
by the mail server it's supposed to reside on) will result in your
Forum Account being automatically removed. If you did not receive
an Email with a validation link (it is sent immediately after initial
Registration to the email address provided), contact the Forum
Administrator within 5 days of the attempt to see if a validation
email was in fact sent to the address you provided. If the address
had a problem and was rejected, we will have received a failure
message. Misspelled Email addresses will result in a failure, so
check your spelling before you complete the Registration. If you
are able to login to the Forum areas, and your Group Affiliation
is listed as "Validating", it means that your Registration attempt
was successful and a validation Email was sent to the address you
If you haven't already done so, please ensure
that any Spam controls or Intercept services you may have didn't
inadvertently quarantine the Email message or prevent you from
accessing the area. These are the primary causes of validation
and access problems. If you are unsure about how to verify your
settings, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) Support
Team. They can more easily assist you in adjusting your settings,
as computer configurations are widely varied. Check both your
Spam quarantine and deleted file lists to see if the message wound
