A quick note to new users: some of you may have noticed that your newly registered account is quite restricted and e.g. can't have an avatar, can't use BBcode, external links, images and endures rather onerous flood control.
These restrictions are manually removed by one of the moderators once we see a registration is legit, but owing to the large number of newcomers a few people may have slipped through the net. If you're one of them, please reply here and we'll look into it.
While I'm at it, if you could post new topics asking for help & tips here
(please try not to be too spoilery with the titles) and anything that looks like a bug or glitch here
that would be lovely.
