Joining for the Forums
Before you can post on the Slow Travel Forums, you must join. This is free. We manage our own registration system (but it is separate from our review registration). To join, click the Login/Join link in the upper right corner of the forums. Or click this link to Join.
From there you see the screen below. Click the circle next to “I am not registered on Slow Travel Talk"
The screen changes to below, click "Continue"
You will now see the screen below. You will need to enter at least the following five fields:
Then page down and click "Submit"
When you’re done, you will receive this screen. At this point you should have received an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link in it that you will need to click in order to verify your e-mail. If the link is not active within your e-mail (which sometimes happens with services such as AOL), cut and paste the link to the address line in your browser. If you do not do this step, you will not be able to post. If you did not receive this e-mail, check your SPAM folder; they often end up there. Otherwise, let us know.
You did not receive the verification email
If you did not receive this verification email after joining, your SPAM filter has stopped the email. Check your SPAM folder, you may find the verification email there.
Some email programs, such as AOL, stop Spam but do not put it in a Spam folder that you can check. In this case, add this email address to your "safe list": email@example.com.
To have the Verification Email resent:
