Welcome to any new users reading this!
As a deterrent to spam accounts, all new users are now required to make an introduction thread in the Introduction Planet, found here.
It doesn't need to be a detailed introduction, just a brief hello and tell us a line or two about yourself, or why you joined.
Once that's made a moderator will need to approve it, though that won't take too long.
After that you're free to post wherever you want on the forum.
Any more questions, feel free to contact me or any other admin/moderator.
