Account Activation and Sign Up

#1 Post by gvarnell » Thu Sep 29, 2005 2:03 pm

You first need to click the registration button at the top of the page. Fill out the information and an email will be sent to you.

Click on the link in the email to have your account activated.

Next click on Usergroups at the top and request access to the "Users" group. This will email the forum administrator who will need to "approve" your request to join. This is done to keep Spammers and people who are not associated out of the forum.

For this reason, it is very important that you provide as much information about yourself so the forum administrator can approve your request.

If your request was denied, it is because you either don't belong here, or you used a free email account (gmail, hotmail, etc.) and did not provide any identifying information.

Be sure to read the FAQ to learn about all of the cool features of this forum.

In order to see the forums, you need to request to join the "Users" group. This is an additional step designed to keep out spammers.

Joining the Users group is slightly different now than it was in the past versions of the forum. The new instructions are below.

To request to join the Users group:
  1. Click on your login name in the top-right corner of the page.
  2. Click on User Control Panel in the drop-down menu that appears.
  3. Click on the Usergroups tab in the User Control Panel.
  4. Click on the radio button next to the Users group in the middle of the page.
  5. In the bottom-right corner of the page, make sure "Join selected" is set in the drop-down box.
  6. Click the Submit button.
Once an Admin has added you to the group, you will be able to view all of the forums.
