I got an email informing me that my membership "has been verified" but when I’ve looked to comment in the forum section or send a message, this appears: "Once your membership has been reviewed and approved by a DiveBuddy admin, you will be able to post comments."

I realize it’s only been 24 hours since I joined, but I have a profile and photo and I did receive the ’verified’ message. Is the review by a site admin something separate requiring more time? Thanks!

Welcome to the site Mike! Greg is trying really hard to weed out the spammers for all of us. I’m sure it will be corrected soon. I remember years ago I had similar questions about my profile photo. All good. :-)
