An active registration is required in order to post.

Steps to an active registration:
  1. Sign up: register your account. Choose your username wisely. While real names and strict verification are not currently required for posting, posts made by known users using their real names as verified users (see below) are more likely to be answered by Rip and the Starting Strength Coaches.
  2. Email verification: Immediately after registration an email is sent to your registration email address for verification. Follow the instructions to confirm your email address. If you do not respond, three additional emails are sent at regular intervals over the week. Since many emails are diverted by local rules, be sure to check your spam folder for the verification email. Additional verification emails can be requested here.
  3. Account approval: New accounts that have completed steps one and two, above, are approved for activation at least once each day. A notification is sent by email to confirm.
