* Registration Warning

To register a membership with this forum you will require a valid email address. On approval or rejection of your membership by site administrators, you will be sent an activation email or a rejection. The activation email will have a link for you to validate your account and then you will be able to use your membership. If you enter an invalid email address either deliberately or accidentally you will not receive this activation email and you cannot access your membership. This includes misspelt email addresses. Please ensure your email account is valid and spelt correctly to avoid disappointment. Free email accounts are not accepted. We apologise for the difficult to read Visual Verification image and trivial verification questions but it is necessary to stop spam bots. We have also banned email addresses from certain free providers due to abuse, we will not make exceptions.
