As of November 9th, 2015, you have to be a registered member and be logged in to see anything on Scaffies.
If you have any trouble signing up or logging in, contact admin [at] scaffies.NL
When you apply for a new account, and can’t be bothered to fill out the profile properly: the account will be deleted on review.
A Login field is also on the lower left of the “What is going on?” page(Link to the hard Karate Nut Kick Video shown in this picture)
New here? Then please Register to create an account. Lost Your Password?
All new account applications are reviewed first. Please use some care when filling out your new profile during registration.
Below are more details about how the registration process works.
Scaffies not free – you are expected to engage, and contribute. Financial contributions are voluntary, Scaffies runs on donations only.
Your login name is your USERNAME (the one with the @sign in front of) – not your email address, not your display-name.
If you enter the wrong login credentials 10 times, you are automatically blocked (it is against hackers with brute-force attacks).
If you are blocked, wait 30 days, or contact admin [at] Scaffies [dot] NL
The registration has a couple steps:
You fill out the form on the Registration page
(make sure you also solve the little captcha question against spammers). Once you SUBMIT after filling out required fields, you get a confirmation message on your screen that your registration went through. It also says you will then get an activation email and that your account will be reviewed.
The system sends you an Activation link to the email you registered with. If you mistyped your email, of course it will never reach you. If you do not see it after a few minutes, also check your “Spam” folder – sometimes the message ends up there (in most cases it shows up in your inbox almost instantaneously). Click on the link to confirm you received it at your email and you are ready to log in, upload a profile picture, and do some more on your profile. During the first 24 hours you cannot message others on the site, and other restrictions apply, until your account is reviewed and either approved or denied.
the first Scaffies administrator from the Scaffies Administrative Council Kosh (“SACK”)
who sees your account application will review it. This is mainly to check the account did not bypass all spam controls and an actual human filled it out, and secondly to check if this is an application from someone who really wants to be part of the Scaffies community. If some of the required fields just have dashes in them or “asdf”
instead of an answer, the application is likely to be denied, and the account deleted: we do not just want lurkers on the site, but members who want to engage. So it is good if you took 5 minutes during the registration to write a few words in those fields (they are all clearly marked with explanations). You will receive an automated email either way, informing you the review has been completed, and of the decision.
during the account review the SACK
will also see if the account was activated or not; also, if an email is obviously spelled wrong (mistyped, such as ‘gmai.com’ instead of ‘gmail.com’ )
the admin will correct it and send an email / site message to the applicant to explain why he never got the activation link – and then manually activate the account.
