Why should I register?

In order to fully utilize the abilities of this forum, the administrator will probably require that you register as a member. Registration is free, and allows you to do the following:
  • Post new threads
  • Reply to other peoples' threads
  • Edit your posts
  • Receive email notification of replies to posts and threads you specify
  • Send private messages to other members
  • Enter events in the forum calendar
  • Set up a 'contact list' to quickly see which of your friends are currently online
To register, you will need to specify a username and password, and a valid email address. Entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam', as you can choose to hide your email address, and messages sent to you via email do not reveal your address to the sender in any case. (To verify this, you can try sending an email message to another user.) The administrator may have configured the forum to send you the final part of the registration process by email, so ensure that the email address you provide is valid and working.

If you are under the age of 13, the administrator may require that a parent or guardian provides consent before allowing you to complete the registration process. More information about this is available during the registration process.

Why do I have to give my email to you during registration? Is it protected from spam?

Your email address can be optionally hidden, ensuring complete privacy. (However, if you choose this option, only administrators may contact you through the boards.) The administrator has enabled a mail form style to allow other members to email you without them seeing your actual email address, so if you'd like to enable this, no one will see your address until you respond to an email that they send you. Make certain that you have entered a correct and valid email address as some features of the board require your valid address. Your email address is protected and can be hidden by you in the registration process. Your email address is not given to anyone or sold to anyone for SPAM.
