FAQ about Registration and Login to Members Area
Is Registration mandatory?
Only registered users can access the Forums. You may not register yourself. The BSP members are registered by the webmaster, and receive their username and password by email. Dropped members may ask to remain as BSP friends.
Why can't I Login?
Cookies are tiny files that contain your general forum settings and log-in information saved to your computer. Unfortunately, some Internet users disable cookies in their browsers. Allowing your browser to accept cookies from the BSP, you won't have to log in when you return to the forums.
So be sure you have cookies enabled in your browser.
How do I enable cookies?
Use your browser's menu options. For example, in IE 6, click:
Tools > Internet Options > Privacy (tab)
To tweak your general cookie settings:
1 - click "Advanced..." in the "Settings" group.
2 - Check "Override automatic cookie handling" if necessary.
3 - Set "First-party Cookies" to "Accept"
4 - Leave "Third-party cookies" at "Block"
5 - Check "Always allow session cookies"
When you're done, click OK.
Alternatively, you can set bspenance.org as "SAFE" for cookies.
On the Privacy tab, click Edit in the "Web Sites" group to change cookie handling on a site-by-site basis.
Enter bspenance.org in the address field and click "Allow" and then "OK" to allow cookies.
If you have cookies enabled in your browser, you will be able to return to the forums without being logged out for 15 days. Everytime you visit the forums during the 15 days period, the computer will "remember" you and automatically log you in.
To keep someone from using your member account on your computer, just "log out" of the forum when you are done. (But when you return, you will have to log in to the forum.) Please log out if you are on a public computer. If you are accessing the forum from a private home computer, there is no need to log out.
When the 15 days period expires, your cookie will be automatically deleted and you will be required to login again.
How do I get back a lost password?
If you've forgotten your password, you can have the system send it to your e-mail address.
1 - Go to the login screen.
2 - Type your e-mail address. The login and password associated with that e-mail address will be sent to the given e-mail address.
