Why should I register?

In order to fully utilize the abilities of this board, the administrator will require that you register as a member. Registration is free, and allows you to do the following

  • Post new threads
  • Reply to other people's threads
  • Receive email notification of replies to posts and threads you specify

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 in any case, messages sent to you via email do not reveal your address to the sender. The administrator may have configured the board to send you the final part of the registration process by email, so ensure that the email address you provide is valid and working.
