All new forum accounts have to be manually activated before you can post under that account name. We will do our best to promptly activate legitimate accounts. To help prevent delays, make sure to register with your squad's tag. If you are the first of your squadron to register, or do not belong to one, please introduce yourself. In order to tell us who you are, or to notify us of a delayed activation, don't try to sign in normally. Click the Post Reply button in this thread, and you'll need to fill in a temporary name and answer the security question. Don't simply use your registered name (it won't let you yet). Take it and add 'guest' to the end, and it will allow you to post here and expedite your account's activation.
After your forum account has been activated, and if you belong to a registered squad, you then need to join your team group
