Registration Procedure

Please read this page carefully. It contains an explanation of how to complete the registration and explains the terms of your registration.

  1. Accept the terms of being a registered user of the Forum (at the bottom of this page)

  2. Choose a user name and password

  3. Enter a security code based upon a picture of letters and numbers (called a Captcha code)

  4. Answer three questions. We take seriously the keeping of spammers and hackers out of our Forum. Although, in the extreme we cannot prevent it, we can take some practical measures to reduce the chances. A key to our security effort is for you to answer three questions, the answers to which are known to you and/or your friends and/or neighbors but not to computers attempting to maliciously penetrate the Forum. If you are a resident of our community for some time, answering the questions will be easy. If you are new to our community get the answers to the questions below from your neighbors. These answers are not secrets among your neighbors but they will not be known to the bad-guy computers.

The answer to each question is a SINGLE word. The first two characters of the answer appear immediately after the "?" mark. Enter the two characters and then complete the word.

The three questions you will be asked to answer are selected from the list of six questions below.

  • Local name of our community?ci

  • Name of the river to the north of our community?pa

  • Longest north/south road within our community?ci

  • Name of nearest 6 lane street?pa

  • Nearest east/west intersecting city street to the immediate north of our community?ir

  • Our community periodic hosts a soup?su

If you do the above correctly, a registration approval request will be submitted to the Forum Security Team. If they decide you are a qualified registrant you will receive an email confirming it, enabling you to enter the Forum. If you have questions about the procedure or are having trouble registering, please send us an email using the link at the top of the Registration Agreement.
