If you were trying to register omn this new Forum, I apologise - I deleted too much code in my effort to clear the pages of emails, YIMs YIPs, IMs, MSMs and various assorted annoyances, and it seems I deleted too much!!
But all that has been rectified now and I would welcome any and all requests for registration...
The old software needed to be removed, and here is the replacement. I have to say it is very much more user-friendly, and I have made every effort to remove all mention of email addresses and public contacts.
Also included in this version is PM - Private Messaging. This allows one registered user to directly contact another registered user via the Board, and unless one notifies the other neither knows anything about the other - name, email, location, interests, etc..
You may say that is the opposite of what we should be doing here, but please bear in mind there are some pretty strange people in the world nowadays, and if you can keep your personal information private that is the suggested way to keep it.
When you register, please ensure both "Notification" boxes are checked in your Profile... that way the Board will send you an email Alert if and when someone either responds to a thread you started/joined or sends you a Private Message.
Registrations to this particular Board - in order to use it - will be by manual confirmation by the Administrator (myself). I already administer several other Boards, and it is quite a workload to keep the SPAMmers from both registering (automatically, email confirmation only) with pornographic links and posting their filth.
If you have your registrations approved by me, I can already see it will be a far easier Board to manage. The penalty is perhaps a maximum 24 hours delay until I can get to them - I am on line every day.
You do NOT have to register to view/read the Board's posts.
Thank you for your patience...
