Your account is active now. The FAQ system is a bit weird, it doesn't auto-auth accounts, rather it sends me an e-mail and I have to manually approve
each account :( I'm not quite sure why it does that, but it looks
like accounts are only needed to answer asked questions, or make mods but
any anonymous user can ask a question.

If anybody else on the testing list would like to help out in some other
way, I'll be happy to set you up with FAQ database permissions, so you can
clean it up, or add your own FAQ's. The DB is rather outdated right now,
and could really use some TLC :)
