Posted:If you're referring to having your own photo gallery then you have to get in touch with Malcolm to get one, I think, can't really remember properly.

Posted:your onscreen name may not be your login name.
perhaps u are trying to validate your onscreen name as your login name.
for example, my login name is Bender_the_Offender.

other than that, yoo may need kookies. that may not be the case, as you seem to log into the forum fine if i am reading your post.
kookies are yummy tho.

Laugh Often, Smile Much, Post lolcats Always




How do you change this thing???
