FAQ

Got a Question?  It's probably been answered before.  Simply scroll down to find a similar or the same question you have.  If you can't find what you're looking for, go to the submissions page for further instruction.

Q Why should I sign up?
A There are many benefits to signing up such as getting your name on the member page, getting your own personal page and being able to join conversations on the message board.  Plus, it's 100% free.  No hidden charges or anything.  There's no catch.  I don't even know how to make hidden charges.  So, you should feel totally confident signing up.
 
Q I'm worried about signing up, I've been fooled into paying money once and fear the same fate by signing up here.  How can I be convinced that it's ok to sign up?
A We can easily promise free membership because we don't ask for credit card numbers or personal information.
 
Q I don't have an email address, but you need one to sign up.  Help!  How do I get one/why do I need one?
A We send important emails out to give you board updates, tell you any problems we have with your behavior on the board, or congratulate you for recieving a mod position (if you do recieve one).  You need to have an email address that you can be reached at, otherwise we won't be able to contact you.  You can get free and easy registration at many websites as long as your 13 or have parental permission.  My recommendations: Yahoo! or Hotmail.  Both are fairly reliable and are free.  There are many other places where you can get an address for free, so shop around ;)
 
Q I tried to register here but I got an email back saying I had to fill out another form.  So then I tried registering on the actual message board and it said I had to fax something.  What's with that?
A Due to U.S. Federal Law, it is required of all message boards and websites that allow registration of those who are under the age of 13 fill out a COPPA form and mail it in with their parent.  A hassle, I know, but would you rather fill out a stupid form or have to pay a fine?  DO NOT simply send the form without telling me first... it's not my fax number.  The fax number is owned by my school and if they see some weird form pop out I doubt they'll keep it so please contact me first!  Click here to contact me.
