Since this gets asked so often, I'm going to post the Board Rules here. When you register, you are asked to read and agree to these. (Yes, I know most people don't bother to read them.)
I'm also going to make this a sticky post, so hopefully it will ameliorate me having to answer the question repeatedly.
Please remember - the Stovebolt site is a purely volunteer operation. Registrations are usually approved within 24 hours but it may take longer at times. Thank you for your patience.
When you register, you will immediately receive an email with a link in it. You MUST click on that link to verify your registration before it can be approved. If you do not do so, your registration will be automatically deleted after 24 hours. If you don't get it, check your spam folder.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow advertising on the Stovebolt Forum except in the Swap Meet. If you advertise in other forums, you will be banned permanently, no exceptions.
If you lie about your location or you fill in bogus information your registration will be declined. If you spam the boards after approval, you will be banned permanently.
Once you've been approved, your posts will be moderated until we're satisfied you're not a spammer. During that time you cannot create a signature or use the PM function. Spammers have used both to pester our members. You also will not be able to view our members' profiles.
