    There are 4 places on the web page you can use to start your registration.

    On the website, you will find this tab

    On the page you will find 3 options

    All will take you to this page
    1 register a.JPG

    but make sure you use the 'Sign up' button, not the Login or Sign up button
    1 register b.JPG

    Then you get to the page where we will ask you for a LOT of personal information. But don't worry.
    NONE of this will show on the forum except age (please show), location and country which also shows your national flag


    However, do comply with the "required" fields as your registration will fail otherwise
    Also the CAPTCHA question which is our way of preventing those horrid spam-bots and trolls getting it!

    Once you've signed up, there is an email verification to be attended to. This means it is essential that you use a valid email address

    Once you've clicked on the link in the email that sends our system a confirmation, then your account is up and running and ready for you to use.

    The next step though, is choosing the right category to post in. You can see all the options on the HOME page
