How to Correctly Register to this Forum (Important)!
Thank-you for your interest in joining The Rife Forum!
In order to successfully join this forum, please take account of the following notes which have been written to explain the entire process.
Once you have completed registration and confirmed your Email address, you can login to the forum and read the messages in the forums. However, you will not be able to post new messages until the Administrator has reviewed your application and approved it. This normally happens within 24 hours, in exceptional cases up to 72 hours.
If you wish to change the information in your profile, you can do so at any time by clicking on User CP.
You will receive another Email when your account has been fully approved. Please check your user name in that Email as we sometimes update usernames that do not conform to the forum standard.
You can view and reply to all messages, while you are online. You can also receive new messages, posted to the forum, via E-Mail as well. This will allow you to keep up-to-date without having to visit the forum just to see if there are any new messages. Simply select Thread Tools and "Subscribe to this Thread" to receive all future messages on this topic via Email.
If you wish to receive ALL new messages, posted on the open forums, via Email, you can join the Rifeforum Yahoogroup. However, please remember that all posts have to be made here, NOT as an Email reply to a Rifeforum Yahoogroup message. At the top of each such Email, you will find a "Reply here:" link. To reply to a post, click on that link first to be taken to the appropriate post here on the Rife Forum.
Posting a message is similar to writing an E-Mail. Simply type a suitable subject and then write your message in the white text area (message body). When you have written your message, you can click on to catch any incorrect spelling (you will need to install some free software the first time you use this). Once finished, you can click on "Preview" to see how your message looks so you can correct any mistakes. Finally, click on Submit and your message has been posted!
That is basically all you need to know, in order to get started using The Rife Forum. There are of course lots of other features to make it all easy to use including an online Calendar, Memberlist, etc.
Additional Questions for Trusted Members.
If you are interested in becoming a Trusted Member, we will need additional information about you. This can be added to your profile after registration is complete here (near the bottom of the page).
Comparison of The Rife Forum with other Rife Mailing Lists
Web based bulletin board or forum systems (like The Rife Forum) work in a completely different way to existing E-Mail based mailing list or list server systems (like Yahoogroups). Each system has its own advantages and disadvantages.
E-mailing lists (like Yahoogroups) are very simple and convenient for the end user, no harder than using the E-Mail program he or she already uses.
The disadvantage is there is little history or organization of past discussions. E-Mails tend to get lost in time and an E-Mail's content is only available to the original recipients. While some lists servers have the ability to keep a history or archive the email messages, the archiving is usually non-intelligent and non-categorized leaving the user with a mass of unorganized messages. Additionally, archiving is only uni-directional, meaning you may only go back and view the archives, which is very frustrating when you have to view a page of advertising every few messages (as with Yahoogroups)! Additionally, using a mailing list exposes your E-Mail address to spammers leading to an ever increasing stream of unwanted commercial E-Mails and viruses.
Web based forums (like The Rife Forum) are very well suited for organized bi-directional discussion. Users may view or contribute to a subject by posting to a new or existing thread of information in any category now or in the future. It becomes possible to sort messages into a wide range of categories and sections and for such messages not to get lost in a long unorganized archive.
Your E-Mail Address
Is your E-Mail address correctly registered in your Profile? If not, you will not receive any E-Mail addresses and may be unsubscribed. We have found that some people have given E-Mail addresses that are returned to us with the comment User Unknown. Although we do try to discover the correct address where possible, we are forced to deactivate accounts that continually bounce. This can also apply to accounts where the inbox is continuously full (over quota). If this applies to you, please change your E-Mail address online in your profile by clicking here!
Failure to follow the above procedure will mean that access will (can) not be approved!
I did not enter, or incorrectly gave, my full name, how do I correct it?
If you entered your full name in the field provided, we will correct your username for you.
I did not receive an Email from you after registration!
Then click on Contact us giving details of your registration and we will look into it. Usually, this happens when the Email address has been mistyped or our reply somehow does not reach you due to your inbox being full, use of SpamCop, etc.
I signed on using a SpamCop protected account. How can I now receive messages from the forum?
The easiest way is to click on Contact us giving details of a different Email account that does not go through SpamCop. We will then change your Email address on our system for you. Alternatively, contact your service provider and ask them to add an override for all Emails coming from as that usually works.
I registered correctly and still cannot access the forum!
Have you replied to the E-Mail that was sent to you when you registered? Once we receive your reply, you will normally be granted access to the forum within 48 hours. You are informed by E-Mail when access has been granted.
I have received the message: Account validated at The Rife Forum!, yet the system will not accept my username and password!
Check you are entering your username and password EXACTLY as you did when you registered (see the Email sent to you when you registered for details). Please check your username as given in the Email you last received from us. We sometimes change usernames that do not conform with forum policy and you will need to use the username we gave you.
Passwords are case sensitive so they need to be entered in the same case as originally entered. Usernames are NOT case sensitive meaning that if you registered as Peter Walker, peter walker or PETER WALKER, etc. will also be accepted. If you are still having problems, click on I forgot my password on the login page.
I am a registered member, but still cannot login (on one particular computer)!
I applied for Trusted Member status and was only admitted as a normal member!
We need additional verification that you have an established reputation in the field you wanted Trusted Member status for. Click here for instructions on how to apply for Trusted Member status.
I am a Trusted Member, how do I change the category?
You can see a list of possible categories here. Send an E-Mail to the administrator with your request.
Why is it so complicated to join this forum?
There are a number of reasons why we carefully control access to this forum as follows:
We respect your privacy and will never pass on, sell or distribute your membership details to any third parties. Further, this forum and its database are stored on a protected server based in Germany. Only the system administrator has access to this database. Click here to read our Privacy Statement.
I hope this helps to clear up any misunderstandings about the registration procedure.
Great people talk about ideas, Average people talk about things, Small people talk about other people...
Never blame a day in your life. Good days give you happiness. Bad days give you experience.
