Can't register to ChinesePod Forum

June 05, 2009, 01:05 PM posted in General Discussion

Hi, this is my first post. I hope this is the right place to ask for this kind of problem.

I'm trying to register to the ChinesePod forum but I don't find any link for the registration. If I try to login with my ChinesePod and password it says that the username is incorrect.

Any help?

Sorry, I wanted to say "...if I try to login with my ChinesePod username and password..."

The forum is not an officially supported forum, and is all but dead these days - the last post dates from April 5th, so a good two months ago. So even if you could register, you'd probably be talking to yourself. The registration link, I think - I'm not sure - may have been removed because of spam.

That's the bad news. The good news is that the officially supported on-site conversation tools are much better anyway, and integrate much more nicely with everything.

CPod admin folks: would it be worth changing the link at the foot of the page to "unofficial forum" or something?  Or would it be worth retiring the forum entirely?

@thinkbuddha The forum actually seems to be locked. Ive contacted the admins to see what they intend to do with it. If the answer is nothing then we'll remove the link as there is no sense maintaining dead links. :-)

Thanks for the information.

I need an help to translate a sentence and in the ChinesePod Forum there is a forum dedicated to this kind of requests.

Is there a similar place in the ChinsePod website? I've tried to search a little but I didn't find nothing.
