If you want to start a topic or post a reply to someone else's message, you must first register as a member.

When you register, your registration has to be approved by the forum administrator. When you have been approved, you will be sent an email telling you that you can log in.

The approval process is to help prevent spammers from posting messages and links to dubious websites, so is for your protection. You should receive an approval within a few hours. If you have not heard anything after 48 hours please contact me through the email link on the main website.

To post a message, you must be logged in. Enter your user name and password. You browser might ask you if you want it to remember your user name and password.

If you want to reply to what someone else has written, click on "reply" below
the message.

If you want to start a new subject, choose the most appropriate section of the
board and click "start new topic".

When you have finished you can click "send" at the bottom. If you have time,
click "preview" which gives you the chance to read through your message and
see that it is alright.

If you find after you have posted a message that you made a mistake, don't
worry, just click on "modify" and change your message!

Be warned that there is a limit of 10000 letters to each post, so extremely
long messages will not be accepted. If you are in doubt, copy your message
before you click "post" or you will have to type it all again!

If you are a regular reader it is useful to be logged in, even if you don't want to post anything, as you can save time by clicking the "Show unread posts since last visit" link at the top of the page.
