IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS.

Post by phil.harris » Thu 02 Nov 2017, 17:03

1. On the forum you are identified by a 'username', and HQ want members to use their real names on this forum, so no nicknames please. Choose your ‘username’ so that it begins with your first-name and it MUST end with your last-name as on your vmcc membership card. (Note that it must be at least 6 characters long)

2. You also need to enter the following information:
a. Your email address. (Please ignore the black message at the top - it is not an error message, just a reminder)
b. A password, which should include upper and lower case letters and a number.
c. You can specify a language other than 'English' and a Timezone other than 'London' if you desire.
d. Your VMCC membership number.
e. Your name as on your VMCC membership card.
f. Whether you are a Family Member (ie you have a card with a -1 or similar on the end)
g. Complete the anti-spam field. (This may vary)

3. Then when you've entered everything, you need to click the 'submit' button at the bottom of the form.

4. The automatic membership validation software then checks your registration details. If there are errors they will be shown in red.

5. If all is ok you will be shown a confirmation message and you will be sent a 'Welcome' email with a validation link that you have to action (Note that this can take 10 minutes).

6. You have to click the link in the email in order to verify your email address and activate your account, only then will you be able to login and see all of the forum.
If you didnt receive the validation email or have deleted it, then you can request it again via the 'Resend Activation email' link on the 'login' page.
(Note that Family Members have to be manually activated by one of the Team so there will be a delay before you get your 'activated' email.)

When you are ready, click the ‘Register’ button in the title bar at the top right of this page to apply for membership, and you will get the screen-shot shown below.
