  • To register you must be over 13 years of age.
  • Click on the "Login - Register" link on the front home page.
  • Please read the Community Forum Board rules. If you agree to abide by these rules then confirm by clicking on "OK"
  • Complete the regsitration page by supplying as a minimum;
    • A Valid email address. This will be used to send you your activation details. You cannot use the forums until you have activated your registration
    • A Username. You can choose to use your own name or a pseudoname.
    • General Location in the world

You do not need to complete the entire registration page, however experience has shown that many users enjoy sharing some non-personal information about themselves. Furthermore, if you require any assistance from the Community Moderators or Administration staff, these details will be important.

What happens next?

Shortly afterwards you will receive a confirmation email that will contain your activation link and confirmation of registration. You must click on the supplied activation link in order to login and use the forums.

Please remember to keep your login details safe. There is a facility to retrieve these from
the HELP MENU if you have lost them. Your login details are stored in a special
secure way that does not allow the Administrator or anybody else to access these.
