From this point forward, you'll need to have validated your account to use GPXPlus.

Also, exactly one week from today, on July 27th, all unvalidated accounts will be purged.

Purging means deleting right... and if those users already had some eggs/Pokemon in their GPXPlus accounts, would that mean they will all disappear too or do they get sent in the shelter? (if they never bother validating their account that is).

They'd end up in the shelter, just as if they were banned, yup.

Are you going to announce this on GPX+'s site too? I mean there are probably some users who don't use the forums and I don't think they want their Pokemon up and disappearing...

So, does this mean that everyone will be bumped back down to validating to take the test again (like what happened in the past), or will it just be a clean sweep of validating users who haven't passed by then (i believe it's the second answer, but i'd rather be sure than log on and freak out when my account suddenly changes)?

and i agree with crystal shards, this should go up in the latest news banner, since some people aren't likely to check here~

Well, they'll be greeted with a message saying they have to validate their account to continue, so I think they should be able to figure it out.

No. Only people who haven't yet validated have to do something.

I'm sorry, but I'm a bit confused. How do you validate your account? I clicked the link, but it keeps taking me to a page that says:

"...You look lost wink.gif
You are trying to access a file or folder that is off limits to you."

That's the part I don't get... Why won't it let me re-validate my account?

Because your account is already validated, you don't have to revalidate your account. Only those people that haven't taken the validation test have to do that. Am I right?

What I mean is this: Everytime I click on on something int eh GPX+, it just takes me to the validation page. What's up with that?

It would be a little easier if it at least told you what questions you got wrong. Since my other friend and I are trying to help a friend do the quiz over voice chat at this very moment, and we're searching for a needle in a haystack to put it lightly. She just said that she changed one question, and it said that she had four wrong. Yet before she changed that she had one wrong too.

Why put this in anyways? At least they had the option to either play on GTX+ or surf around on the forums before, wasn't hurting anyone really.

I didn't have to take the quiz. I already took it when I validated my account. But it won't let me do anything in the GPX+ It just keeps me at the validating page.

Well...I've already taken the validation test and I got all the answers right and what not. I also did the conformation E-Mail thing, but I'm still considered a newbie, and on the forums it says that I haven't posted anything, but on my page it shows that I have. I'm confused, am I missing something else to become a "Member?" And will this update make my account go away?

Edit: After submitting this post, it says "Posts: 1" I'm confused...does it update slowly or am I just not getting credit for posts?

I'm still confused. How come it won't let me do anything on it... I've already taken the validation quiz... I think the site is out to get me o.o

We did that before, and people just cheated their way through it by trial and error. And it was done so that we can begin pruning inactive, validating accounts, whereas now we can't because thousands of people don't bother to validate but are still active.

Dunno what your problem is.. Unless you're somehow logged into someone elses account (does a sibling use the site?) and they're not validated.

Ten posts in sections that actually increase post count (GPX+ sections don't because there's so much spam and pointless replies in there, and this forum isn't dedicated to GPX+ only).
