Problems logging on
When you register with this forum, you'll be emailled with a password to go with your username. To log on, do the following:
1. Go to the forum front page and press Login
2. When prompted, enter your username and password (these are case-sensitive)

If you have a problem logging on, or see a message such as "An Error Has Occured", you may need to refresh the page, or shut down the web browser, re-open it and try again (as the unregistered version may still be in memory).
If you see that your username or password aren't recognised, this could be something to do with the way that you're entering your username or password. These are case-sensitive, so make sure you are using capital letters if needed. If you still can't log in, Contact me providing your email address, username and error message, and we'll reset the password for you.
