Got a question about rocket mass heaters, wood stoves, or anything of permaculture? Or maybe you have an interesting story that you want to share with the permaculture community? There is no better place to post your question / story other than on one of our forums. To do that, you need to sign up to permies first.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to sign up to permies, before you can post


Step
1

Sign up form


Click the following link to go to the sign up form
https://permies.com/forums/user/login

Full out the sign up form as shown below, and then click the "Submit" button to continue





Step
2

Sign up successful


If you have filled out the sign up form correctly, it will take you to a screen like this



On this page, by clicking the "change my email" link, you can change your email if you want, but naturally you don't have to do anything here - just proceed to step-3.


Step
3

Check your emails


At this point, (assuming you have entered your email address correctly on step-1), you should receive an email from permies within a couple of minutes, containing an activation link to activate your permies account. Please open that email and click the activation link in it



It is possible that your email client is too old and it doesn't display the activation link as a clickable link. If that's the case, please copy-paste your activation link to your browser's address bar and hit enter.

If you don't receive the activation link within 2 minutes, please go back to step-2 and verify your email address is correct. On that page, you can also make it resend the activation link to you by clicking the "resend the link" link.


Step
4

We're all done!


If everything went all right, you should see a message like this:



If you made it to this point, wow! congratulations! You are now signed up to permies! Make sure you don't forget your email address and password - you will need that when you log in next time.

https://permies.com homepage is an apache HTTP Server with some containers running in the backend. What you see on that page are some static files.
It won't. Even if Holzer was an auto-link.
This is a known issue for a long time guys. It's one of those not-so-easy-to-fix kind ones.  It only happens when you have more than one word in autolinks.

Yeah - somehow the algorithm we use there ended up 'thinking' that spam post was a 'best'. Probably it was the best of spams
This is a known issue related to caching. In other words, it will disappear within a few hours.
