Be careful with your personal information
Please be very careful NOT to post your email address, street address, phone numbers or any other personal information (whether in text or photos) in a post, as it will be visible to the public, probably harvested by spammers and scammers, and could result in unwanted attention from these parties. The owners and administrators of the forum are not responsible for any unwanted attention due to private information being displayed publicly by members.

Your email address
Your email address when entered into the registration application form, will NOT be viewable by the general public or other forum members unless you choose to do so. Nor will it be disclosed to any third party or used for any promotional purposes. It will only be used for such things as - confirming your registration details, for sending new passwords (should you forget your current one), and advising you of new topics, posts and other changes to the forum. By checking a box in your Member Profile, you can hide your email address from other registered members if you wish.

Passwords
We highly recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account to prevent account theft. Please choose a password of at least twelve characters, preferably a random collection of numbers and letters including upper and lower case, and not a dictionary, slang word or proper noun.
