New member posting restrictions
Message to new members - Welcome! Your first few posts will have to be authorised by a moderator before they show up on the site - this is not because we don't trust you! The only reason for this is to prevent spammers from posting their messages. We are getting 20 to 50 spammers registering each day and they often post their spam straight away - so this prevents their posts from ever being seen which makes it pointless for them to register here (although for some reason they're too stupid to realise this!). Please be patient and if we can see that your posts are genuine they will be authorised and your account will be turned into a normal user account with no restrictions.

Who are the Administrators and Moderators?
You can always see who the current Admins and Moderators are by clicking on - The Team - which is at the very bottom of most pages. If you want to find out a bit more about each one of them read 'Get to know your friendly moderating team'.

What can Admins and Moderators do?
ADMINS - CAN Alter any post, edit any profile, enable/ban/unban/delete users, change your username. They can do almost anything!
MODERATORS - CAN Edit most posts. They CAN ban or unban an account but CANNOT delete it. They CANNOT change your username.

Editing or Deleting your own posts.
You can do this yourself but please read the announcement on this first.

Changing your username.
You will need an Administrator to do this. See the link at the top of this post to find one.

Read the FAQ
The FAQ will answer many of your questions. There is a link to the FAQ at the top of most pages.

Support Forums
If you can't find your answer in the FAQ then try the support forums. Remember to give your post a descriptive name (i.e. NOT just HELP!) and try to explain exactly what's happening.
