If you are new to the SharpCap Forums or about to join the forums then you may find this information useful.

Creating an Account

When you create an account you will be sent an email message to confirm your email address. You will not be able to login or post until you have clicked on the link in this message. If you do not receive the message straight away then please check your 'Spam' or 'Junk Mail' folders as sometimes your email program or ISP may have classed it as junk email. Sometimes the message can be delayed - if you have not seen this message within 12 hours of registering, please use the contact form to get in touch with the admin.

You must complete a 'recaptcha' quiz and answer a simple question to allow your registration to proceed - these are to keep the number of people posting junk messages to the boards down to a manageable level. If you cannot see the recapatcha because you cannot contact Google servers then you may need to contact admin to get an account set up for you.

Your first post

Your first post must be approved by a moderator or admin before it becomes visible. This approach is required to prevent junk messages advertising everything from running shoes to diet pills appearing on the forums. First messages will usually be approved within 12 hours but sometimes it may take up to 24 hours for one of the admin team to approve your message. Please try to be patient and don't duplicate your post while waiting - thanks!

Message to spammers : If your first post is a spam or advertising post then it will not be approved and your account will be deleted without notice.
