Most important of the "Rules and Regs" of the site. You need to register with a real name, like Bill Flemming, John Smith, or Susan Finnegan, Rajiv Patel, Simon Chi, and so on. Do not sign up with it all pushed together like simonchi or put numbers into it or use anything that is not a name. It doesn't have to be your real name, but it has to look like a name. We are besieged by spammers, and only by using this naming convention will you get registered properly. Thank you! You can also use a set of initials if you prefer, but those are rapidly getting used up, and please remember, no numbers.
