I have noticed that there are a number of applications to join the forum. The rules of registration have not changed in the past 5 years and are pinned to the top of the main forum page for viewing purposes. Only a combination of your fist and surname (eg. JOHNSMITH) will be accepted as username on this forum. I had previously changed those names who had applied under an alias but have decided that it is no longer my job to do so. If you have recently applied (and there would appear to be about 8-10 applications) you will not be allowed to join the forum with the current usernames you have chosen. Please re-register using your proper names and these can then be processed. If you continue to use an alias you will be blocked.
