I just joined and I didn't get the activation email!

When you register an email gets sent to the email account that you signed up with to activate your account.  If you are using a Yahoo, Hotmail, or any other account that has spam filters in place please check other folders in your email for the activation note.  

Yahoo accounts are notorious for shifting this welcome email to other folders.

Make sure also that your email program is set to receive new emails and your email box is not full.  If your email program was full you may not have received the welcome email.  The activation email will be sent again after another day or two so if your box was full please clear some of it out to accept new emails.

Did you enter your correct email when you joined?  A bad email address or a mistyped one will also prevent you from joining the site. 

To request that the email activation code be resent to you please visit this Link to Resend Activation Code.

As a last resort please contact us at mailto@indiamike.com from the email account that you joined with including your username that you signed up with.
