Postby souldeep » Fri Apr 01, 2016 11:33 am

Registering to become a posting member on the netsuke and sagemono lounge is typically a simple and straight forward procedure.


Step 1 - Click on Registration

Step 3 - Populate the Registration Form

Beyond accepting the terms and conditions, you need to fill out some important details such as selecting a username, entering your e-mail address * and desired password. You can also select your timezone and default language you wish the netsuke and sagemono lounge to translate the overall framework of the website.

Please note: Changing your default language will convert the "framework" of this site into your chosen language. The framework includes the static rules, FAQ, buttons etc. It will not automatically convert all the topics and posts submitted from the lounge's base language of English. Another tool is available for that and it's usage is explained in the editor tutorial section.

At the bottom of this registration page you will see an automatically generated graphic with some odd-looking characters. In the image below you can see this highlighted in green. This is known as a CAPTCHA. A CAPTCHA is an image with distorted letters and numbers which you must then type into an adjacent box. The reason for this is to ensure that you are a legitimate user registering (as opposed to a spam robot performing an automated registration). Simply enter the characters you see into the Confirmation code field and proceed with the registration. If you cannot understand the code, click on the refresh code button to get a new code.

Step 4 - Email link confirmation

To help reduce spam we have made it a requirement that you have to follow a link mailed to you after registering before your account is activated. In this case you will see a message similar to this one:

Your account has been created. However, this forum requires account activation, an activation key has been sent to the e-mail address you provided. Please check your e-mail for further information

Once you have completed all of the fields on the registration page, clicking the Submit button will complete the process. If you wish to clear all fields, clicking the Reset button will do this for you. After clicking Submit, you will be sent an e-mail to the address you specified with a link to finalise the registration.


Important note regarding your email address

* If you are already an existing INS member and want to automatically be included into the INS group please make sure you use the same email address as you have provided to the INS. In doing so, and on logging with your new account, a new area of the forum will appear entitled THE WEST WING - A private residence for INS members .
