<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">We are implementing compulsory registration to the Missing-Lynx discussion boards as an additional security measure to protect visitors to the site.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">The application is two-fold.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><B style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">Step 1<o:p></o:p></B>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">The first step is to create an account with Network 54. Some of you may already have one of these and it simply means that when you post messages it shows your username and, if you wish, your e-mail address.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">To create an account, simply click on ‘Create Account’ on the grey toolbar at the top of the index on any of the discussion boards. A verification e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you provide and, once you have received this and followed the link within it, you will have a Network 54 account.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><B style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal">Step 2<o:p></o:p></B>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">The second stage is thus for all persons with a Network 54 account.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">Log-in to your account on any of the discussion boards. While logged in, click on the URL below:

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">http://www.network54.com/Group/76465

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">This should show you a table entitled ‘Missing-Lynx members’. This is the name of the membership group you will now be applying to. Click on ‘Apply to this group’. If it does not say ‘Apply to this group’, but says instead ‘You need Network 54 account to apply to this group’ this means that you have either not created a Network 54 account (see Step 1 above), or that you are not logged in on one of the discussion boards. Log in to one of the discussion boards and then refresh the page URL above.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">When you click on ‘Apply to this group’, it will confirm your e-mail address. You will then be sent an automatic e-mail which contains a verification key. Follow the key link provided in this e-mail and you will be automatically approved as a member of the Missing-Lynx members group.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">As of Wednesday 20 April, anybody who is not a member of this Missing-Lynx members group will only be able to read the discussion boards. You will not be able to post any messages. You will still be able to view this message and thus apply to become a member.

I do read the WW1 fourm several times each week.
Since most other sites now require registration,
(Mine is from Hyperscale) hopefully it will bring
about a more civil, and relaxed forum, for the exchange of imformation, in our chosen areas of interest.
Being a rather oldman, I can assure folks that not everyone is going to agree with everyone else, but remaining mature, civil, and level-headed, not hot tempered insures a continued, relaxed place to visit, and enjoy, to be able to exchange information, data, photos, etc.
OH.... I'm an expert at nothing..... just an oldman that's been building models over 50 years.

Thanks for your support.

I just wanted to remind everyone that having a Network 54 account is not enough. It will work today, but as of tomorrow you will also need to become a member of the Missing-Lynx members group.

The link to join the group is: http://www.network54.com/Group/76465

Best wishes
