|Why should i register a handle?
Forums have 3 levels for posting messages or reply's;
1. Public: Everyone is allowed to post messages or reply's.
No login required.
2. Registered handles: Only registered handles are allowed to post.
3. Members-only: Only members (board-owners) are allowed to
post. Login required.
Most forums are set to "registered handles only". So
in order to be able to post messages, you need a registered handle.
With that handle you can login to Spamfreeforums. Your handle is
valid for all forums, no matter where you registered your handle. An
extra benifit is that you are the only one who is able to post with
your handle. So nobody can abuse your name and post fake messages,
abusing your name. Your handle is password-protected.
|How do I register a handle?

own unique handle. We will verify your signup, and if its approved
you will receive an automated-email with your password and

password and font
attributes). After selecting the attributes you wish, click on
"submit" at the bottom of the page. the page will
refresh and you will be able to see the changes you've made. If you

your handle will be automatically displayed in the "name"
box of any forum you wish to post in (even if it does not show -
it's there... really - it is!

|Where can I test my handle
to see if it looks ok?

|I tried to log in, but now
I'm locked out. Please explain!
You have five chances to correctly log in. If you make 5 errors, you
are locked out of loging in WITH ANY HANDLE!! (The lockout is based
on your IP address!) The log page will not let you login on the same
IP until either the file is cleared by the webmaster by hand, or is
automatically cleared at Midnight GMT. Please be careful with cut
and pasting your password. If it fails once, don't re-paste the same
thing again (even a space at the end of the password will make it
|One of my posters has lost
his/her password. Can you help?
Yes. Please post the user's name in the Webmasters_Only
board. Unfortunately we will NOT post the information, nor
e-mail you (the member) with that info. What we WILL do is look up
the poster's handle, verify it does exist, and e-mail a new password
to the e-mail addressed used when requesting the handle. If their
e-mail address has changed, there's nothing we can do for them. They
will have to create another handle, or wait for this one to expire.
|All about cookies.
We are using cookies to store your handle. The password is not
stored in your cookie but in a file on the server. If you use the
login procedure at this site more than 20 times without closing your
browser(s), then you may find your handle becomes inactive. To
correct this problem, just close all open browsers, then open them
and try to login again. Cookies given to you by this site are not
persistent cookies. In other words, they will disappear as soon as
you close all of your open browsers.
After doing a lot of research, We've found
cookies given to you by Java scripts might be capable of being
stolen by other Java scripts. This might be where the myth about
cookies started, but we are giving you a cookie using a CGI script.
Again, it only has your handle stored in it, and it can't be
tampered with by any other web site.
|Why do you have a "logout"
selection on the login screen?
Yes, there is a logout button on the login screen because you should
log out if your computer access is on a public/shared computer. The
handle information is stored in a cookie, and remains in your
temporary file directory unless you log out. If you don't share
your computer, it's not really necessary to log out. Cookies do
expire - you'll need to log in next time you come to Spamfreeforums.
