HOW TO REGISTER AND THE BENEFITS
To be able to enjoy all of the features available to the community, you will need to sign up for a member account. Registration is free and easy and only takes a moment to complete.
To sign up, click the "Create Account" link at the top of any page. The administrator requires that you supply a valid email address. This is important as the administrator may require that you validate your registration via an email. If this is the case, you will be notified when registering. If your e-mail does not arrive, then on the member bar at the top of the page, there will be a link that will allow you to re-send the validation e-mail.
Some communities may have an easier way to register without filling out the registration form. If enabled, you will see a Facebook or Twitter icon next to the Create Account button. If you use these services, you can use your existing login information from those services to link your account. Registration via this method takes only 3 clicks and will return you back to the forum after you authorize it.
You may be registered and logged straight in, or you may have to verify your email address by clicking a link in an email that we will send you. If this is the case, a screen will appear with further instructions. You will receive a confirmation of your membership as an email.
Once you have registered and logged in, you will have access to your personal messenger and your control panel.
