Are you having problems registering on this site?

Postby Paul » Sat Jul 21, 2007 8:36 am

If you are trying to register on this site and are having problems, the common issues causing this are:

1) on the registration screen, mis-typing your e-mail address. A valid e-mail address is required to send the activation e-mail to you. Until you click on the link in the activation message, your account will not be activated

2) using an e-mail address that is already associated with an existing account. If you have tried in the past to register and your account has not been activated, then you cannot create a new account using that same e-mail address. Contact the administrator at and I can delete that old account for you.

3) Failing the "Authorisation Code" question. This field must contain only the three letter answer "BMW" in upper or lower case. If you type anything else in this field the account will not be created.

If you are still having problems then e-mail me at and I will try to help you out.


You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Arguably, if anyone has trouble with the authorisation code, they are attempting to join the wrong forum!

I had problems registering because I was using an Apple Mac to register and it seemed to go through ok, but I never got a confirmation email, I tried that twice before I then tried on a PC and it worked first time. Has anyone else registered with a Mac and had similar problems?

Use registration numbers from previous bikes or cars, jumble of letters and numbers so reasonably secure and it's only probably you that can recall them :)

I have tried to sign up using a prefered name, and it replies: Sorry, but this e-mail address has been banned. ?

Is there a list for these on the internet or does your server not like my name ???.
