Trouble activating my account on alphanet



I followed the online instructions on how to connect to alphanet with docker. It seems to work in general, but when I try to activate account I always get …

Operation hash: blablabla
Waiting for the operation to be included…

And then nothing ever happens. Is this normal? Should I just wait on?



Is it really such a stupid question?


If you are activating a Fundraiser account, are you sure that works with the Alphanet? And not just the Betanet?

If you are, it sounds like your node may not be connected to any others. Have you tried calling head and seeing if the timestamp matches your current clock?
