With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person or knowingly engage in account sharing (either letting someone use your account, or using someone else's account) for your protection and for validity reasons.  When logging in with a public or shared device, make sure that your username is correctly displayed in the upper left-hand corner.  Be sure to log out before letting others access the device to prevent accidental account access.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement or our rules.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

Please note that the forum software stores personal messages (PM's) from your message inbox and outbox in a database.  This database can be directly accessed by the administrators of this forum therefore it is strongly recommended that you do not ever PM private information to other members.  If you do send information via the forum PM system, please keep in mind that deleting the message from your inbox does not remove it from the database, and any members you sent the message to will still have access to it.  In extenuating circumstances that require a full deletion, contact an administrator.

Important:  When your account has been approved you will be sent an activation link by email.  This should not take longer that 12 hours.  After this happens, you will be able to log in to the forum.
