How to register on the site

If you have dealt with us before

Your details are almost certainly already on the site. Go to Request New Password, enter your e-mail address and press the button. If we already have your e-mail address registered, you will be sent an e-mail with a link you can click on that will take you into the site and enable you to set up a new password. If you use an anti-spam service please ensure that mail from info@ficm.org.uk is allowed through.

Please be sure to check all your details and amend your preferences as required. It's a good idea to log out and log in again to ensure that your preferences take effect.

If you are completely new to us

Go to register and simply work down the screen filling in the information as requested. Fields marked with a red asterisk are mandatory and must be filled in - other fields are optional.

You may select your own user name and password.

Please enter your contact information and contact preferences and then select the appropriate boxes in the "About you" section.

Finally answer the security question and press the "Create New Account" button.

You will be sent an e-mail to verify your account details. Click on the link in the e-mail to confirm. If you use an anti-spam service please ensure that mail from info@ficm.org.uk is allowed through.

That's it! It's a good idea to log out and log in again to ensure that your preferences take effect.

What now?

The site will now look a little different based on your preferences. Look out for a new menu ("Your Access Privileges") in the right hand column which will take you to the areas of the site relevant to you. Look out too for the Forums block in the left hand column which will take you to the forums relevant to you (you'll also see the latest forum topics being discussed on the home page).

Enjoy the site!
