Absolutely not! As a guest you will not be able to use certain functions of the site, for example post to a forum, but you can view all the content.
Does it cost anything to join?
No, it's completely free and optional.
Why should I join?
Joining, allows you to use the forums, post comments and interact with other site members through private messaging and other features. However, you should in no way feel obligated to join, as I try to keep the majority of the content viewable to the general public.
Why can't I type in the shoutbox?
First of all, make sure you're logged in. Only members can post messages to the shout box. Visitors can view the messages only. Second, there is a known issue with Firefox in that it doesn't update when you enter text. See the small text box above the shoutbox for details.
I registered but I never received the email with my password, what is wrong?
You may have received the email but it could have been marked as spam and so not delivered to your inbox. Check your spam or junk folder to make sure the email wasn't misdirected there.
If you still can't find the email then use the contact page to contact me and I'll see what we can do to complete your registration.
Can other users see my email address?
No, neither anonymous nor other registered users can see your email address. Registered users can choose to send you an email though, through this website but your email will still remain hidden. If in doubt, send a private message instead.
