  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

Attention New Registering Users

Most new accounts are not approved due to the below rule not being followed:

All requests for membership MUST use their real name for the username in the format First name Last name, without numbers. No “screen names” will be accepted.

Due to the number of bot registrations, I am only manually looking at registrations that meet the following pattern (first name) space (last name). e.g. John Smith

Registration attempts with a user name that contains numbers, or that otherwise does not meet the above format will be deleted and not reviewed by a human admin.


Bad registrations will no longer be receiving an acknowledgement of failed registration... this lets the spammer know they have a valid email address and increases my workload, so if you are unable to post or view pictures after registering, you will need to re-register correctly....

Also, please be aware that it can take me up to 4 days to register new members, I do take days off occasionally :) and am off the grid, these will be handled when I return, if you have not been activated within 5 days, PM me and I will investigate.
