The administrator requires you to register in order to use all the features of the forum. Being registered gives you an identity on the board, a fixed username on all messages you post and an online public profile.

Registration is free (unless otherwise specified), and offers an extended range of features, including:

* Posting new threads
* Replying to other peoples' threads
* Editing your posts
* Receiving email notification of replies to posts and threads you specify
* Sending private messages to other members
* Creating albums of pictures and comment on others' pictures
* Adding events to the forum calendar
* Setting up a 'contact list' to quickly see which of your friends are online.

How do I register?

You register by clicking on the 'Register' link near the top of the page. You will be asked to choose a user name, password and enter a valid email address. In addition there will be some other fields to which you will be invited to respond.

Some will be mandatory while others are optional. Once this is complete you will either be fully registered, or in the case of our forum, you will have to click on a link in an 'activation email' sent to your email address. Once you have done this you will be registered.

An email will be sent to the email address that you provide at the time of registering. This email contains details on how to activate your account.

You will receive an email in your inbox. The subject will read: "Action Required to Activate Membership for Atomic Zombie Extreme Machines Builder's Forum‏".

You MUST follow the link in that email before you can post on these forums. Until you do that, you will be told that you do not have permission to post.

Note that entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam', as you can choose to hide it from other board users. You'll probably be able to allow other registered users to contact you via email, but the system won't display your email address to them unless you give permission.

If you are under the age of 13, the administrator may require that a parent or guardian provide consent before allowing you to complete the registration process. More information about this is available during the registration process.

Only one registration per person. Multiple usernames by the same individual will results in permanent banning of those usernames.

Banned users

Anyone who is banned from this forum and registers again with a different username will be banned permanently and his/her Internet Service Provider notified.

Once a user is banned, his/she is banned permanently. We keep detailed logs that will be provided to law enforcement, if necessary.
