E-petition queries answered

Posted by @ 2:55 pm on Wednesday 7th May, 2008.

I've had a couple of emails from folk who said that they've signed the petition but their names weren't on the list. Eventually we sorted it out, it turned out to be one of the simplest things I've done for a while...

The thing to realise is that it's a two-stage process:

  1. Fill in the details on the sign-up page and then click the "sign" button. Contrary to what you would think, this does not sign you up, it just registers your details and triggers the sending of a confirmatory email to the address that you put on the sign-up page.
  2. Open the confirmatory email and click on the link in it. That does sign you up, and it returns you to the sign-up page where, after a short time, you should see your name at the end of the list.

It's no good just doing stage 1, you have to complete the process.


p.s. current count = 1720, just over 17 days left, at least 280 more signatures required, that's 16.47/day.
