This tutorial is for those who are visiting the forums for the first time, or have just joined.



Please note that to read and reply to posts on the the Chit Chat section, you need to register first. You can view all other sections without having to register. Only when you login, do you get to see our Chit Chat forum section (where most of our general discussions go)
(even if they are not registered)




1- How to Register?
If you are not a registered user, you will see a link on the top menu, which enables you to register. 
Or you can click on this link to register:  http://www.assyrianvoice.net/forum/index.php?action=register



2-What do I need to register and how long does it take?
Registration takes less than 45 seconds. All you need is to choose a user name, and password, and provide a valid email.



3-What happens after I register? Can I start posting right away?
Before you can start posting and reading in the forums, you need to verify your account first. To verify your account, click on the link in the email sent to you by the Forums. Once you click that link, your account is officially active and you are ready to post and read anything on the forums.



4-I registered but never got any confirmation email!
When you register, an email is sent right away. If you never got it, chances are, it is in your junk (spam) email. Please check your mail settings as well as your junk mailbox, as it could very well be there.



5-I checked my email and junk filters, and the confirmation email is still not here, please help!
No problem at all. Simply send us an email to: assyrianvoice@rogers.com along with the username you registered, and we will take care of the rest.
