Going to roll back to the ‘non registered’ commentator. Cannot resolve the google rejection of our email in a timely manner. It will most likely take several week before we give it another try .. keep your user ids and passwords as they will be needed when we fire it back up.
Rollback is scheduled for 6pm EST.
Having issues with new ‘registered’ user send message to the mods using ‘support’ account
Then send message.
- When you attempt to enter a comment you will get the following ‘Only registered users can comment’
- Click on the ‘registered’ link
3. Click on ‘Register’ at the bottom left to continue your registration.
4. Fill out desired user name
5. provide a valid email address (will be used to send link for password entry)
6. This screen appears .. then ￼check your email for link to password scree
7. This is the password screen from your email link
8. you can modify the computer generated password to one that is more suitable
9. Now go back to the comment screen
10. select ‘registered’ and enter you user name and password
Thank you, Saker, and the terrific Saker Team!!!
Hopefully this new system will streamline the comment section, alliviate the work of the commentators, and elevate the quality of comments.
“…alleviate the work of the moderators…”
The “old” system is better..

The “old” system is better..
Well, you know, some people believe we were better off without computers…everyone is entitled to their opinion. I do believe having posters registered will cull drive-by shooters, trolls, hasbara, who hide behind the no-registration system.
Change, is the only immutable law in life, many people, however, like inertia. There are plenty of other blogs to post at, if you don’t like this one.
Thanks Andrei and team for the work you do!
I am a luddite; however, I did manage to register. Thanks for the opportunity to access The Vineyard of the Saker.
Thank you Saker, I’m going to enjoy this.
In like Flynn.
Mmm! Answered my own question. I could log in with the password for the posts on Orthodox faith that I joined last year.
Thank you to Saker and the support team!
First try didn’t post here.
Perhaps this one will.
I am in!
One more luddite registrerd.
yeah thx for the work. now we had something to track comments. Let’s see if it helps.
Orthodox faith login works fine. Thanks!
It works for me now.
I was able to log in successfully.
Thanks Saker and team for all your hard work and tireless dedication.
Only had the reply option over here.
not sure what you mean … i just logged in and was able to post a message without ‘reply’ .. herb
I don’t get a link, then I get a message that I’m already registered but I’m denied log in. Has Andrei blocked me?
Tell him a Christian is supposed to forgive. I’ve never made an offensive post.
Please provide additional detail eg userid requested so i can review the logs
I checked “remember me” and saw “logged in as Taffy” in the comments box.
But still am unable to comment and told to log in. Then I have to go through the whole “profile” business again. ???
your on and commenting … no problems for you
Registration for Haymer Doots [email protected] has failed.
No email received after registration screen.
Tried again about 15 minutes later as supposed I made an error typing email address but found both name and address registered (so asked to choose alternatives).
I believe it has to do with the gmail account. all failures so far have been gmail accounts … gmail blocks the email if it is not configured in a special way … i’m reading about it at this time .. if you have another non gmail account i can remover your current haymer doots and you can try with different email … let me know how you want to proceed
Thanks Saker I was confused yesterday.
I went to register and didn’t get the confirmation email for some reason.
sent you an email with a valid passwd …
it appears that gmail and now your email drop the email as they do not like the way the email is formatted… still do not yet understand it enough to modify out email service
Suggestion to other posters, compose your post in Notepad (or whatever) first.
Save your Notepad work until you are certain that your post posted.
There may be initial bugs that Support has to work through.
Entiendo las razones por las que se ha implementado el registro de usuarios para poder comentar en el sitio, pero ello tendrá como consecuencia indeseada, que la participación de los usuarios disminuya drásticamente.
Hay aportes de los usuarios que son de gran interés, y me temo que esos aportes disminuirán considerablemente.
No comment, just checking if my user name and password from Christian Vignette works.
Thanks for the quick help in getting me registered! Herb, you rock!
Hello, I created account JonLX but did not receive an email over the next 12 hours. I tried the ‘create account’ option again, in case I entered the wrong email, didn’t hit enter sincerely enough, etc., and was informed that this account already exists. I tried the ‘forgot password’ option and was again told I would receive an email.
FYI. I am using Firefox. The login page is not secure, I had to add the https:// prefix to thesaker.is.
Help me, Saker-wan Support. You’re my only hope.
are you using a gmail account … it appears that google is very picky about its email and will not even receive email if it does not like how the email header is formatted if you have a non gmail give it a try .. i am still trying to understand what needs to be changed to please google mail
Hi, I am having the same gmail problem of not getting a registration mail ([email protected], username SuzyM), could I try again with a different email?
needs to be a non-gmail account … my yahoo account worked .. I am having ‘post smtp’ assist with the configuration of the wordpress email account so that gmail accounts receive their email
I got the registration email with my Yahoo account, so I am registered now!
yes but it must be a non gmail account .. i have contracted with a firm to change my email configuration to allow gmail to work but that will take a few days to be implemented
I am attempting to use my yahoo account Not sure why it gets translated into my gmail account, which I rarely use and then only as a backup. When I submitted the register page, I used the att account under ’email.’
set your passwd … sent it via email.
Perfect. Thank you,
In the upper right corner I am greeted by,
Was my VPN set to a Texas cattle ranch when I applied for my account? :-)
Wonder what Australians/French/Germans/Italians/…are greeted by.
makes me laugh .. ‘howdy’ herb
Now I can comment w/o using the reply to option. Its all good.
Hello Herb and team,
you know me on the blog as Rob. The one from Germany. Since more ‘Robs’ are around I registred as ‘Rob D’ (‘D’ from ‘Deutschland’ :-)) with my regular mailaddress. Both are registred now, but I never got an e-mail with log-in stuff, so I’m stuck.
What can we do to solve this?
Cheers and thanks in advance, Rob
Hi Rob .. set your password for the account.. sent it via email
gmail accounts do not receive email as google thinks they are spam .. do not even get to spam folder .. i am having my wordpress mail configuration modified to allow gmail accounts to receive email. Not sure when this will be done .. my quess it will take 2-3 days
Thanks Herb, it worked.
It’s a comfort to accuse google. That’s their karma for their board crying that Hillary lost :-)
gmail accounts do not receive email as google thinks they are spam
Unfortunately it is not true that Google thinks it is spam (as I understand it, anyway) – Google routinely blocks all communication with certain email addresses – incoming or outgoing or both. They call it defence against “spam” as a legal trick which is virtually impossible to disprove, but the fact is it is plain censorship, nothing else. Google is the biggest email censor on the planet. The best solution is not to use Gmail. I can’t think why any Saker reader would want to use Gmail anyway, but it is your free choice. Just be aware that a significant number of real people cannot contact you!
I registered as Surferket with email but never got any confirmation link.
seems to same problem as gmail … i gave you a password and sent it via email
Herb didn’t respond so I did the Lost Password to get in.
Those of you who are clearly registered but didn’t receive the confirmation email just do a Lost Password and get in.
I changed your password 4 hours ago and sent a email to your email on outlook.com with details. Please ck your email .. If you do not get it let me know.
Is admin using any of these plugins?
I registered yesterday .
just checking that it is working correctly .
Next stop, Locals.
It worked with my outlook.com mail address, but I had to pick up the response mail from the spam bin.
not receiving any emails on attempting to register. have tried 2 email addresses and also have a wordpress account which is also not recognised
you need to provide username or email that you entered so i set up the account for you .. herb
Hello! I tried to register but I do not receive any confirmation email to change the system-generated password. When I tried to login with my screen name and password, the system told me that the name is already in use so I tried to access with my email and password but the system does not send me the email to either addresses
i have reset your password and sent it to you in email on your gmail account.
google (gmail) is rejecting our email believing it to be spam .. I have contracted with a firm to modify our email installation so that google will accept the email but this will take several days
Excellent. I have registered. Thanks
Thankyou to the Saker team for their work.
My first email took a while to come through and had expired by the time I went to set up the account. Requested it to resend and it all went through fairly quickly and without any issues.
I got in. Thanks Saker Team!
I initially could not get a ‘response’ email which was sent to my Gmail address. Emailed Herb. He reset my account and emailed me a password. I used it, and my Saker account validated perfectly. Thanks, Herb!
Hi support. I followed the instructions and typed in username (Ali) and email address ([email protected]) and sent it out to you. I have been waiting for an email for half an hour. I checked my trash file and inbox. I have received no email from you. When I try to register again gave me a message that I am already registered. Will you send an email soon, the next day?
I have assigned a new password .. ck your email for the password
Can we have an Amarynth only day? What a pain … but here
Easy and smooth process. Thank you Herb!
When I attempt to sign up I am not being sent a password to my Email. Although my email and name appears tp have been accepted. Please help and thanks for all you do.
you need to provide the user name or your email so i can set your password and sent it to you
Got bitten by the Gmail problem, so created a free account at Protonmail.com. Seems to have worked out OK, although I had issues with Protonmail screwing up the login password there so I had to reset it.
Ain’t technology grand? As Woody Allen, the greatest philosopher of the 20th Century, once said, summing up the human condition: “Nothing works and nobody cares.”
I have sent an email to [email protected] Re no confirmation email received.
User ID: grr
Thank you for the revert. I had been living virtually in my email inbox since 1000 hours GMT. I thought I wasn’t getting some basic things right. Thanks again.
In addition to making life easier for the Saker team, this system tends to keep trolls away, which is really good!
And tried again.
Could not make it work for me—-but I am bad with technology. I decided to read what I could and was glad I got a donation in before this axe fell.
I registered yesterday. Everything went fine. However, the confirmation e-mail went into to my junk mail folder. I noticed this right away, as often times sites with logins/registrations have this issue. Hope this helps anyone else out having issues…
Hi Herb – sorry for all your problems..thanks for everything !!
I hope to get a comment account, but will wait till its sorted out.
Off topic but it’s important:
There is a civil war raging in China.
The “Republic of China” (those with a political agenda, or retards, call it “Taiwan”) and the Peoples Republic of China have never come to any peace terms. Now is a good time to settle the matter. Please keep in mind in the 1940s “China” invaded Taiwan and committed mass murder of the indigenous inhabitants of the island. This should NOT be overlooked and some justice for the indigenous inhabitants should be forthcoming. (All real estate stolen from the indigenous island people should be returned for starters)
Col. Douglas Macgregor said to Fox’s Tucker Carlson this week, at least 5 ! attacks on China used Taiwan, Formosa as a springboard or aircraft carrier, and that included the Japanese.
Any attempt to offensively tool-up Taipei is seen immediately as a threat.
BTW Tucker Carlson seems totally surprised by Speaker Pelosi’s Prank – my guess is she stole Carlson’s thunder – he is a well known China hawk.
This is a test. I am trying to register. Let’s see if this works.
Good I don’t care for the new system..
no email has ever been sent via registration or via “lost password”. nothing in inbox or spam mail
What exactly is the reason for and the expected benefits of this new policy?
It weeds out people here with bad intentions, and you don’t have add your name each and every time you comment, that’s the part I like.
Greetings and blessings
I also tried it several times and the key does not arrive in my email, it does not work. It also tells me that I am already registered with that name and that email…
Thank you, but no. I’ll go back to being a lurker.
n my case it worked fine, but I didn’t receive the confirmation e-mail until the day after my request. The email was considered spam, but I found it anyway. The account is created, I just had to wait.
Please, re 9 & 10, where do I find the comment screen?
I have registered but I cannot find the comment screen.
We have reverted back to ‘non registered’ due to problems with mailing credentials .. just comment as before … mod
Take a break for a day and this happens!
Ready to go when you guys are.
I sympathize with the dominance of Google. (Gee, it sure would be nice if one of those more advanced than us ‘Muricans progressive Eurolemming vassals…or a Zone B country or 3…would implement some basic anti-trust law and separate all the non-search stuff Google has bought up over the years using its excess profits from its market power in search…but I digress)
Having said that, Gmail is far from the only service out there. There’s no technical reason why Google must be allowed to dominate policy choices about websites. A couple links for those wanting a different email provider (focused primarily on Zone A users although these are generally available in Zone B). There’s Yahoo, Microsoft Outlook, AOL, Apple iCloud, plus smaller/targeted ones like GMX and Proton and even ones like Yandex for those Zone Aers who like to spice things up with a little intel/surveillance/guilty-until-proven-innocent risk in their online activities.
Good luck Herb and everyone balancing the ubiquity of Gmail with improving security and other back end considerations.
Let me throw my hat into the ring, as I want to be able to comment. It is the two-way communication of the internet that is being restricted most lately. This is a general statement, not related specifically to this site. It is getting harder and harder to leave replies to presentments of ideas.
Just testing to see if Im able to post. Thanks
I want to comment
