post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I tried signing up for Emazing, to get the daily cat-tip. To make a short story even shorter, the upshot was that Emazing won't let me sign up! After I provide the information they're seeking, I'm told there's an error of some sort and that I should use the "back" button to correct what they perceive as my mistakes.

Sadly, they give no clue as to what the "mistake" or "mistakes" consist of; and since the two password-boxes are hence found empty I figured the password I'd chose was already in use. I tried two other passwords, with similar lack of success.

Can somebody get Emazing to clean up their act? It's not a very user-friendly attitude; and it has dissuaded me from subscribing to Emazing.

Yes, I'm mad.

These online forms can be tricky...

Have you tried contacting someone at Emazing? I don't actually work for them, I just write the cat tips and get a link back to this site in return.

Would you like me to try and contact someone there for you?

Yes, thank you, I'd greatly appreciate your contacting Emazing. Mind, it's not the end of the world should I be unable to register with them; but these sign-up deals ought to be easy. Thanks again!

Mr. Cat;I thought it was just me, or the fact that I use webtv and not an actual computer. I had a lot of trouble registering with emazing also; they kept turning me down for the same reasons that you stated. Reasons that I tried to correct I finally e-mailed them and they said that the problem was that I had not checked enough boxes for junk to receive! All I wated was the Cat Tip and The Trivia Challenge. They sad a minimum of 6 boxes checked would enroll me and then I could unsubscribe to those I did not want. . . . . .RIGHT ! Let me tell you unsubscribing is even a bigger nightmare. I agree. all these places want us to join and then they make it d--n near impossible to get registered. One of the easiest sites to join was The Cat Site. (thank you, Anne)

As far as I remember I had no trouble signing up just for the cat tips at the time. Maybe they changed something. I've written them and I'll let you know when I get a reply.

Yes, when I set up the registrations to the forums and the cat pages I tried to make them as simple as possible (in the cat pages you do need to go through 3 forms but it's all info that's needed either to create the page or for the search mechanism). I hope I can carry on like this though. Most places that ask you to sign other mailing lists and such are doing so because they're trying to make a few more bucks. And let me tell you that making a buck on the internet is getting harder by the day

To be honest, I don't even know HOW I began receiving emazing stuff to begin with, but I'll say I get a couple of their mailings besides the cat tip.

Being a horoscope person, I really like theirs. I also get their internet tip, which is quite useful many times. I get some other one called "strange truths". Also I really love that Quote of the Day on all their mailings.

The bottom line here is that I know the form filling-out can be frustrating, and if all they want is to send you a few more things, I say the stuff I get from them is worthwhile. Check a couple of extra boxes. You might like it.

Well, you're probably correct in asserting some of Emazing's stuff is interesting. The problem with registering (nowadays) is that you're sent back to "try again" without being given so much as a clue as to what you did "wrong" in the first place!

If they'd just be up front about it and state a minimum sign-up requirement on the sign-up page, people like me wouldn't become frustrated. But they don't. Oh, well.

LOL, well, today's emazing quote of the day was this:
(I swear, they are ALWAYS relevant!)

All I need now is a computer. And a ten year old kid to teach me how to use it.
- Fletch (Chevy Chase) in FLETCH LIVES

I do agree with you and share your frustration. Iwas trying to get an auto insurance quote from Ford online the other day. Luckily for State Farm, I got that same type of error message so many times, I finally gave up before I pitched the computer out a window!
