    It's depending on e-mail service you're using and site.
    Some sites send confirmations quickly, but e-mail provider loves to slow it down or report it as spam and not deliver it. (Had it happen with some shitty polish mailboxes) or sites are set to send confirmation after x period of time. And yeah, e-mail providers can even slow it down even further.

    I suggest using Gmail if you have issues with current e-mail provider. GBATemp activation takes like what, 20 seconds to 5 minutes max?

    Odd, my sister tried creating an account about 6 hours ago and it's still not confirmed on here... might be due to same IP idk.

    I know there are some members who have trouble with the activation. I don't know the cause of this, but we have a thread behind the scenes for manual activation / confirmation of new members. Care to PM me her username?
