Please read before you register

Post by admin »

Anyone can read the posts in the main forum.

There is a Members Only section that only registered Members can see when they are logged in.

If you want to post a new topic, reply to a topic or participate in a Poll then you need to be Registered and Logged in. To stop spammers there is an extra level to the registration and you need a code word to complete it. That code word is on THIS PAGE. The word will change from time to time.

When you have registered (which is free) you will get an email to activate your membership. As soon as you are activated you can post as much as you like. You can then also visit the Members Only Section.

If you are a spammer you will be de-activated. If you put a dodgy looking website in your membership details you will be de-activated.

If your email address bounces you will not be able to activate yourself so please check it carefully.

All of the above is to protect the genuine Forum Members from professional spammers who just go on forums to advertise their (often obscene) websites.

If you do not get an activation email or have any other problems please check out any announcements on the forum or email forum@knitone.co.uk.

Due to some persistent spammers, we have had to add an extra level to the registration process.

When you register your details will now be sent to Admin who will activate your account. This may take a couple of hours depending upon the time of day.

We are sorry we have had to take this action due to these spammers and hope genuine customers and visitors will understand.

Once you are activated by Admin you can login as normal whenever you like. This only affects new members.

We have not had any spammers for a while now so will open up the registration process again.

When you register you will get an email to say you have registered and can post straight away without waiting for Admin to approve you.

However, if we again get spammers the process will be reverted again.
