Thread: Error 16

    Error 16

    Is anyone else by chance having problems with Error 16. Where it says that your account has not been activated and you must go to a certain page to activate it. Although all it does is send me to my account page, which looks completely fine. I even tried to "Activate my account again" I've had this same account since July 2010, and now it is saying I need to activate it.

    I am also now a Free-to-play player, I was leveling a character just about 12 hours ago and now I have this issue. Has anyone else run into it, and by chance know a way to fix it.

    (I have tried to post in the main forums but once again it says my account is not active..)
    Excited

    Haha. I laugh because I just went through this a week ago, the exact same problem. And with absolutely zero help at all from SWTOR staff I was able to figure out how to get by this issue. There was one thread open related to this error over there, and a person came over and said he was able to play after basically just setting the email to a new one. You can't use the same email that you've been using. Just set it to a different one and it works. It worked for me.

    I had this problem aswell because i had participated in the beta with my email, and when I sent the activation email I never recieved one. So I had to make a new email and It worked. I don't really like having things spread out on multiple emails, but whatevaH!

    It's not listed on the Known Issues thread as yet, also haven't seen a dev post about it either =/

    Totally correct. Same thing happened and after a simple email change, bingo - fixed!

    K I've actually posted this a couple times... This is a copy/paste from what I have already posted.

    My friend got his account fixed from error 16 but we arn't exactly sure how it happened.

    What we did.

    - We went to swtor.com
    - logged into his account
    - Clicked "My account"
    - On the side menu we went to "Redeem codes" or something like that
    - It then stopped us and said we needed to confirm his email.
    - using that page he added his email and pressed submit or confirm or something
    - He got the email in his email inbox moments later
    - This time when he clicked the link in the email it actually said it was successful!
    - He had to log out of the game and log back in a few moments later and he could play his character!


    Hopefully this will work for you too.
