    Welcome!

    If you haven't already registered, you can do so now by clicking on 'Register' at the top of the page. Registration is completely free, and quick - there's no need to wait for admin to activate your request, it's instant!

    Next, if you haven't already done so, please take a look around our forums to get a 'feel' for the place and to see what has already been posted. Then, when you are ready to start posting, just make sure you are logged in, and then follow the instructions below!



    To Reply To An Existing Topic
    If you have seen an existing topic which you would like to reply to, simply click on the [​IMG] button and type your reply into the big white box which appears. You can insert 'smilies' such as :D and :roll: too. Once you have typed your reply you can choose to either 'preview' it before posting it (which lets you make any changes before submitting), or you can just 'submit' it straight away. Your reply will then be added to the bottom of the topic.



    To Create A New Topic
    First, make sure you are in the correct forum for your new topic - the full list of forums can be found here on our front page. Next, click on the [​IMG] button over on the left-hand side to start a new discussion, or perhaps to ask a question, which is relevant to that particular forum. Hint: make your topic title as informative as possible - so that other members can see at a glance whether they would like to open the topic and read more.

    In the main part of your post, you can insert 'smilies' such as :D and :roll: too. Once you have typed your post you can choose to either 'preview' it before posting it (which lets you make changes before submitting), or you can just 'submit' it straight away. Your new topic will then appear at the top of the forum that you have chosen to post in.
