Akismet problem (7 posts)

    I've upgraded to 2.0 without a problem, signed up with wordpress.com and got an API key (whatever that is!), but when I try to activate Akismet it tells me that the API key is not valid. What am I missing?

    Something trivial, no doubt.

    I think it happens to some of us, me too. Mine work only after 4 days. So patience is the key here? :)

    I had to move servers for it to work...

    If waiting is all that's necessary, I can do that with the best of them!

    ...But I'm not keen to move servers.
    Is there any way of finding out what the problem is?

    Hmmm. I've contacted the developers that time, they asked me to email them my API key, but by that time which is about 5 days later, mine is working already. So, maybe after a few days it's still not working, contact them?

    Sounds like a good plan.
