Click on "Click here" which will bring you to the registration form. Fill in the form and click "Register". You will then shortly receive an email which contains an Account Activation Link. Click on it and you're account will be activated.

Remember to write down your choice of Username and Password and keep them in a safe place.

At the top left of the nav bar on the site, enter your Username and Password.
How do I Login?
Once your account has been activated, enter the Username and Password you've chosen into the Login box and click the Login button.

Make sure you enter these details correctly or nothing will happen.
I've lost or forgotten my password, what do I do?
Under the Username and password fields at the top of the nav bar, there's a link;

Forgotten your password?
Request a new one here.

Click "Here" and a new password will be sent to you by email. Click on the link in the mail to activate the password. Then log in as normal.
Write it down and keep it in a safe place.
What's the box beside the Login button for?
Tick this box if you wish to remain logged, so that every time you visit you'll automatically logged in until such time as you click "Logout". This is not recommended for public computers as the next user would have access to your account.
Please note that due to the vagaries of computers and security software that from time to time you may have to manually login even though you ticked the box.
Why can't I log in?
This may seem obvious, but have you spelt your username and password correctly? Is the caps lock on or off on your keyboard as the fields are case sensitive.
