    The only Access GUESTS have is to the terms and conditions of the site.

    Please register using a PAID email account (ie. Optus, iPrimus, Testra, Bigpond etc). FREE email accounts (ie Live, Hotmail, Yahoo etc) get filtered out and the Moderator's may have to email you privately to verify your identity.

    Lurkers are not welcome and membership is at the Moderator/s discretion.

    When registering, you MUST register as YOURSELF, you can not assume a false/fake identity or State/Country. At the moderators discretion we can question and deny, or remove any suspect member.

    There are some rules and regulations in regards to topics posted and acceptable behaviour, however, it is not as censored as other forums.

    Although primarily an Australian Forum, we do welcome those from outside of the country to share with us their experiences and topics of discussion.

    Rules and Regulations (can be altered at any point in time by the Moderator/Administrators):

    There is a '3 strikes and your OUT system' in place.

    If it is deemed by the moderator that you have overstepped anyone of the rules of the forum, you will recieve a warning.

    THIS WILL BE A PUBLIC WARNING...it will be listed on the Forum.

    Accumulate 3 warnings and your membership will be suspended for a period of a month in which time you have to improve your behaviour and be reinstated in the Forum to start a-fresh.

    If you have accumulated 3 warnings within a period of a month, you will be suspended for 3 months, after which time you can apply to join the forum again.

    Continuous bad behaviour will result in a permanent banning from the Forum.

    If a post or behaviour by a member is deemed at the Moderators/Administrators discretion to be serious enough to warrant permanent banning, no warnings will be given and you will be banned from the Forum.

    In most cases Permanent Banning will be passed by three Administrators, of which include the Moderator.
