Guests are welcome to browse through the open forum areas, however in order to post a new topic or reply to any existing one, as well as access members-only forum areas, you'll need to register an account. Registration is free and simple to do!

All you need to provide is a username, password, name (can just be a nickname) and a valid email address. On registering, you'll be sent an email with a link to activate your forum account, so its important to provide an email address you have access to! (Don't worry, your details are safe and will never be passed on to any third-party)

Check your junk or spam folder if you do not receive any email within a couple of minutes in case your registration email ends up there. If after ten minutes you still haven't received anything, send us a message through the form on the Contact Us page, making sure you mention the username you signed up with, and I'll look into it as soon as I can.


Content embedding

This website is powered by WordPress using BuddyBoss platform and the wpForo forum plug-in.

WordPress supports auto-embedding of many popular external formats, you just need to paste the external URL, and if that website provides OEmbed functionality then the URL will be auto-embedded.

This works for external image URLs, as well as YouTube and DailyMotion videos, also Facebook and Twitter posts, and of course WordPress posts.

If you have content such as images hosted elsewhere, please just paste the URL into your post, rather than uploading to this site, as I have a limited amount of storage space on this hosting account.



Profile Avatars

If you register your account with an email address used by an existing account, your profile picture will be your Gravatar.

A Gravatar is a 'globally recognised avatar' and will appear on any WordPress powered website where you use the same email address to comment or register.

If you do not wish to use a Gravatar, you can now upload your own image to use as your profile pic, click the Edit Profile link on your own Profile page.
