Login and Registration Issues
Why can't I login?
Why do I need to create an account at all?Creating an account will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as ability to make comment on the blogs, ask questions on the forum, upload forum profile image, etc. It only takes a few moments to join so it is recommended you do so.

Why do I get logged off automatically?User are logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, there must be activity, such as viewing different pages.
I've lost my password!Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved, it can easily be reset. Click the button below, follow the instructions, and you should be able to log in again shortly. Reset Password
I joined in the past but cannot login any more?Attempt to locate the e-mail sent to you when you first joined, check your username and password and try again. It is possible an administrator has deactivated or deleted your account for some reason. Also, many sites remove users who have not posted for a long time to reduce the size of the database. If this has happened, try joining again and being more involved in the site.
User Preferences and settings
How do I change my profile settings?If you are a registered user, all your settings are stored in our database. To alter them, click the Edit Profile link on the User Options menu at the bottom of the page. Please note, you must be logged in to be able to see the User Options menu. Once on the Edit Profile page, you can change your settings and preferences.
The times are not correct!It is possible the time displayed is from a timezone different from the one you are in. If this is the case, visit your User Details Panel via the link in the User Options menu to change your timezone to match your particular area, e.g. London, Paris, New York, Sydney, etc. The User Options menu is only visible to logged in users. Please note that changing the timezone, like most settings, can only be done by registered users. If you are not registered, this is a good time to do so. Join now
I changed the timezone and the time is still wrong!If you are sure you have set the timezone and Summer Time/DST correctly and the time is still incorrect, then the time stored on the website's server clock is set for a particular reason.
How do I show an image along with my username?When you register for an account with us, you automatically have access and a profile in our forum. You may upload an avatar (an image or photo of yourself). The avatar is generally unique or personal to each user and used beside posts and comments made on the site. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and to choose the way in which avatars can be made available. Please only upload professional and appropriate images/photos. To change or upload an avatar/image, go to your forum profile. If you don't have an account yet, click the button below to create one! Join now
