You are not required to register for both an edgeid and GTAGaming forums account. Soon enough when we launch GTAGaming v3, the site and forums will both use the forums database, so this issue will not arise again.
Glad to know that it will be fixed. I am sure in V3 it will be much less confusing for newer members. The only part that really was confusing is that the edgeID was delivered to my inbox, while the forum activation was delivered in my spam filter.
