Registration Agreement

***SPAMMERS*** DO. NOT. BOTHER. Forum registration is monitored regularly. We are astute as to the methods used to spam forums. We will detect you quickly, ban your IP address, and delete your account and your posts - so don't waste your time or ours....

***NEW MEMBERS*** RESPOND TO EMAIL CONFIRMATION TO COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION. THEN IMMEDIATELY INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN THE "NEW MEMBERS" SECTION OF THE FORUM, BY BEGINNING A NEW THREAD TITLED WITH YOUR USERNAME IN THE "Newbie Central - Introduce Yourself!" FORUM. TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT WHY YOU'RE HERE. NEW MEMBERS FAILING TO INTRODUCE THEMSELVES WILL BE SUBJECT TO HAVING THEIR ACCOUNT DELETED. THIS IS AN ANTI-SPAMMER MEASURE. We're only interested in members who want to participate in the forum. Unconfirmed accounts, or "lurkers" who do not actively engage, will eventually have their accounts deleted after a period of inactivity. The best way to avoid account deletion is to confirm your account and then introduce yourself right away.

***READ "TIPS FOR NEW USERS"*** in the "New Members" section.
