The guy who has just bought my Silver Star wants to join the forum, but I received this message from him:


I've been trying to register but can't find a VIP code anywhere on the site as demanded by the joining instructions. I don't suppose you can help can you?



Does anyone know what this VIP code is? And is it no longer possible to join the forum without one?

Haven't paid any attention to whether it varies, but when I looked a moment ago it was Tokai55VIP. Gut feeling is that it doesn't change, or at least not very often. But if it does and that code doesn't work, he just needs to head to the index page ( and look just below the heading near the top of the page that says 'Announcements'.

The spammers don't seem to have any trouble finding it. :lol:

Can't anyone help with this? He still tells me that the register page demands a VIP code which he doesn't have - surely somebody must know something about this?

Tell him to follow this link: it takes him to the "front" page of the forum look at the top heading which is "announcements" just below that in bold is the VIP Code.

Thanks Les, that makes sense to me. I've passed it on to him.

hi.I joined yesterday but had numerous zero results in the fruitless search for the code.I think maybe I was going to the registry homepage instead of the forum.I gave up and next thing it was there and I got in.I wrote a quick intro after losing the first one and it's sitting in my saved box and I'm not sure how to post it for general discussion???? But I'll probably get that too in time.
