I'm experimenting with ways to get Cyburbia Forums confirmation messages past Yahoo spam filters.
I would like a volunteer or three out there who have a Yahoo Mail account that haven't been used to register on the Cyburbia forums (i.e. NOT a user that is registered with a grandfathered Yahoo Mail account).
What you should do is ..
1) Log out of the Cyburbia Forums, and go to the Cyburbia Forums main page.
2) Visit the registration page.
3) Register an account using a yahoo.com e-mail address. Again, the address should not have been used to register to the Cyburbia Forums in the past. The yahoo.com e-mail account you're using should not be full.
Ignore the warnings on the registration page about Yahoo Mail accounts being prohibited; I'm allowing them for the next few days for this experiment. Use the word "yahoo" somewhere in the Cyburbia Forums username (i.e. yahooplanner, yahootest, etc.)
4) Wait a few minutes.
5) Check your Yahoo mailbox for the confirmation e-mail.
6) If it's not there, check your spam box..
7) Post the results here. Is the confirmation e-mail in your regular box, your spam box, or nowhere? Please be honest.
I will waive the anti-sockpuppet rule for those participating in the experiment; just don't post with the new Cyburbia Forums account. They'll be deleted in a few days, anyhow.
