Read this before you register.

To prevent use of this site as a spam tool forum membership is neither automatic nor immediate. After completing your registration you may not be redirected. If you wait to be redirected you may get a 404 timeout. This is normal. Do not register again. Multiple registrations from the same IP will be assumed to be from spam sources and will be deleted.

Do not use your email address as your username. If you do your registration will be deleted. Spam bots cruise the web looking for addresses to spam. We won't help them in that effort.

Ignore what the registration pages say about emails. The board email function is disabled, so spammers can't use it to mass email members. The only email that you might get is if your registration is questionable. I either approve or reject every application within 24 hours, usually less, so after a few hours try logging on, chances are you're already activated.

After you've been activated complete your profile, including home town. It's a lot easier to get advice on local issues if we know where local is.
