Not much to tell really Digitalguy, we decided that it was better to have the forum as members only, no restrictions as to gaining membership, but if people wanted to read the posts then they would have to register.

If existing members aren't cookied up the entrance page will prompt them to sign in, if anyone is not a member, then all they have to do is fill out the membership form and supply a valid E-mail address. For anyone that isn't already a member, by registering they now get the benefit of being able to make their voices heard by posting and voting in the polls.

Not unreasonable in my opinion.

Cookies can be a problem with some browsers, I used to have a problem with an earlier version of Netscape, but have no problems with Opera and IE6. If you go into the tools/Options/Privacy and make sure that the browser accepts cookies from this domain, everything should be OK, also make sure that your user profile on the board has the option ticked for stay logged in.
