Because of problems with Internet robots, we've had to change the way members join. Instead of it being automatic, we now approve each member before they can join the forum.

Usually it's fairly obvious which applications come from an automated system, but if you have an email address that looks unusual, please at least pick a user name that isn't too offbeat, as it will make the administrators job easier. Also include a real name as well and as much other personal information as you feel able to give. Very few fake applications include a real name, and there are usually other small clues that help us decide if they're genuine.

If you get no response within a few days, it's possible that your application for membership looked like an automated one, and was declined. In that case, please send an email to <> so we know that you're really a prospective user. You'll also need to re-apply, but the second time round you should be approved.

If you receive an automated email informing you that your application has been approved, please don't ignore it! You need to log on to the forum to validate your membership. Generally speaking, if that isn't done within a fortnight, you'll be sent a reminder. If we still don't hear from you, your approval will be reversed, so your application will be declined. That's one of our protections in case we accidentally approve a plausible fake membership.

The first post in a new topic is also be checked by a moderator, so it won't appear instantly, but after that you will be able to post replies directly.
