There is an issue of sending activation keys to new members who have a Microsoft email account. Such as, Live/Hotmail/Outlook. Proboards our forum host is aware of this and can confirm that the issue is on Microsofts side.
If you have a gmail email account or a yahoo email account - then you should be able to receive the activation key email.
I am currently talking to proboards to see if I can add new members manually whilst this issue is happening.
UPDATE: Proboards are still trying to get Microsoft to reverse their changes. In the mean time, it is advised to create a free email account with gmail or yahoo to join this forum. When the issue has been resolved I will update this thread so new members who have had to create a new email account with gmail or yahoo can edit their profiles and put in their original email address if you wish. Very sorry for any inconvenience. Damn you Microsoft! Grrrrr.
UPDATE: Microsoft has now fixed this issue. Anyone trying to register should be able to use their hotmail/live/outlook emails.

I have been talking to Proboards (our forum host) and I cannot add new members manually. Unfortunately the only way to become a new member is to create a gmail account, until Microsoft fixes the issue. For some reason Microsoft has blocked all proboards emails, newsletter emails and other email mailing lists. So it isn't just us who is effected.
