I'm just wondering because I had to make a gmail account just to make an account here (I used to have a gmail account, but I really didn't like it, so I deleted it, and switched to hotmail).

Another question I have is this:

Can I make it so the mail from my new gmail account is automatically sent to my hotmail account (so I can get email notifications from this forum), and if I can, how?

This would make it so much easier and faster than having to switch between two accounts just to check for notifications.

Why wouldn't you just check here for notifications? Seems like less hassle.
Also I liked those books. Never got past the sixth (fifth maybe?) though.
They got a bit preachy, and I don't always agree with what he says, so that was a turn off.

I have accounts on so many different forums, it's usually easier just to get email notifications, then go to them that way.

If you're talking about the quotes in my signature, yes, the Sword of Truth series is good, and the first 3 or 4 are probably the best, but I enjoyed all of them, and it is one of my favourite fantasy series. The Law of Nines and The Omen Machine are also some of the best from him so far (don't read The Omen Machine if you haven't read the Sword of Truth series, as it continues off of the last book)

Yeah, I was wondering that as well. Forum structure, maybe?
this is a question for you, the moderation team to answer

In all seriousness just pm me your hotmail account or post it here and I can change the email associated with your account to your hotmail one.

As for email forwarding you can find plenty of options for this in your gmail settings.

Last of all I would like to know what happened when you tried to sign up with your hotmail account so that I can fix the issue.

Sorry about the last post, I stayed up too late.

I can't seem to figure out how to send PMs on this forum, but for now, I can tell you what happened when I tried to sign up...

I filled out the form like normal, then when I hit "Create Account," it said "Errors were found with your registration. Please correct the highlighted fields below."

By the box where I typed in my e-mail address, it said "The email address you used is not accepted by this community. Please select a different email address."

Then, when I try to change my e-mail address in "My settings," it says that "That email address is already in use."

Once I know how to send PMs on this forum, I will send you the address.
