Formatting and Topic Types
Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this forum. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif.
You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use the appropriate forum tags. For example: [img]http://www.mywebsite.com/myimage.jpg[/img]
Login and Registration Issues
Why can't I log in?
Have you registered? Seriously, you must register in order to log in. Have you been banned from the board? (A message will be displayed if you have.) If so, you should contact the webmaster or board administrator to find out why. If you have registered and are not banned and you still cannot log in then check and double-check your username and password. Usually this is the problem; if not, contact the board administrator -- they may have incorrect configuration settings for the board.
Why do I need to register at all?
The identity of the posters is required at all times. In that way, we can ban users who behave bad.
I've lost my password!
Don't panic! Your password can be retrieved. To do this go to this page and fill in your email address. The password will be emailed to you.
