It is great to introduce yourself here, but please also remember that this board is visible to the World Wide Web and other unregistered users, so please do not post your personal details here unless you do not mind others reading it.
The many other boards on the forum are not visible to unregistered users, so less caution is required, though it is still a good idea to keep personal information private unless you are happy for it to fall into the wrong hands! :-o
Why make the Hello & Welcome
board visible to the outside world?
Well it was felt that the forum needed to project part of itself to unregistered users to show that the forum was active. Some feedback was received that visitors felt that the site was perhaps inactive and decided not to register until they were told otherwise by people who knew differently.
