How to register for the Thunderbolts Forum

Unread post by davesmith_au » Fri Jun 14, 2013 1:50 pm

Due to an intolerably high spam signup rate, it has become necessary to make the Thunderbolts Forum registration process more difficult, which includes filling out a simple application which will then be processed by an administrator. Applications may take up to a day to process.

This system is in effect from mid-June, 2013 and only affects new registrations.

Once your application has been processed, you will receive a system-generated email with a system-generated password to log into your account with. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you log into your account as soon as you get this email, and then change your password. Here's how to proceed:

Once you've logged in, at the top of the board just under "Board Index" you should see "User Control Panel". This is where you can set your own preferences and change your profile, password, etc.
  • 1. Click on "User Control Panel".
    2. Then from the horizontal tabs select "Profle"
    3. Then from the left vertical menu select "Edit account settings"
Here you can change your password. Be sure to enter your current password (the one you just got) into the appropriate field. Though the field says you need it to change your email or username, it should read email or password. Usernames cannot be changed.

Finally, welcome to the Thunderbolts Forum!
