Due to a sudden influx of spammers, we have changed the forum to have a fully moderated sign up process. This means that when you sign up for a new account, even when you have clicked on the link in the email that you are sent by the system, you will not be able to post until your account has been checked by a moderator.
I'm sorry for the added hassle this will give to all of our many genuine members, but it is unfortunately necessary if we are to keep the forum free of spam. In most cases, it should not take more than a day or so before you are able to post, and in many cases it will be quicker than that.
If you have forgotten your username or password, you can request to have your username emailed to you and to reset your password. When you fill in your registered email address, you will be sent instructions on how to reset your password.
