Frequently Asked Questions


Login and Registration Issues

Why can’t I login?
There are several reasons why this could occur. First, ensure that you have activated your account and that your username and password are correct. If they are, contact the forum administrator.
Top

Why do I need to register at all?
You need to register in order to post messages and have access to additional features not available to guest users. It only takes a few moments to register so it is recommended you do so.
Top

Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Log me in automatically box when you log in, the forum will only keep you logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the box during login. This is not recommended if you access the forum using a public PC, e.g. library, internet cafe, university computer lab, etc. If you do not see this checkbox, it means the forum administrator has disabled this feature.

I’ve lost my password!
Your password can be retrieved. Visit the login page and click forgot password. Follow the instructions and you should be able to log in again shortly.
Top

I registered but cannot login!
New registrations require activation before you can logon; this information was present during registration. If you were sent an e-mail, follow the instructions. If you did not receive an e-mail, you may have provided an incorrect e-mail address or the e-mail may have been picked up by a spam filter. If you are sure the e-mail address you provided is correct, try contacting the administrator. Also, check if your username and password are correct.

I registered in the past but cannot login any more?!
Attempt to locate the e-mail sent to you when you first registered, check your username and password and try again. It is possible an administrator has deactivated or deleted your account for some reason. If this has happened, try registering again.

Why can’t I register?
It is possible the website owner has banned your IP address or disallowed the username you are attempting to register. The website owner could have also disabled registration to prevent new visitors from signing up. Contact the forum administrator for assistance.

What are Smilies?
Smilies, or Emoticons, are small images which can be used to express a feeling using a short code, e.g. :) denotes happy, while :( denotes sad. The full list of emoticons can be seen in the posting form. Try not to overuse smilies, however, as they can quickly render a post unreadable and a moderator may edit them out or remove the post altogether. The forum administrator may also have set a limit to the number of smilies you may use within a post.

Can I post images?
No.

What are announcements?
Announcements often contain important information for the forum you are currently reading and you should read them whenever possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted.
Top

What are locked topics?
Locked topics are topics where users can no longer reply to. Topics may be locked for many reasons and were set this way by the forum moderator or administrator.
Top

What are topic icons?
Topic icons are author chosen images associated with posts to indicate their content. The ability to use topic icons depends on the permissions set by the forum administrator.

User Levels and Groups

What are Administrators?
Administrators are members assigned with the highest level of control over the entire board. These members can control all facets of forum operation, including setting permissions, banning users, creating usergroups or moderators, etc., dependent upon the forum founder and what permissions he or she has given the other administrators. They may also have full moderator capabilities in all forums, depending on the settings put forth by the forum founder.
Top

What are Moderators?
Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) who look after the forums from day to day. They have the authority to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally, moderators are present to prevent users from going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.
Top

What are usergroups?
Usergroups are groups of users that divide the community into manageable sections forum administrators can work with. Each user can belong to several groups and each group can be assigned individual permissions. This provides an easy way for administrators to change permissions for many users at once, such as changing moderator permissions or granting users access to a private forum.
