Registering on the Forum

Sometimes there's some confusion about registering on the forum. Here is an explanation that might help some. When you fill out the registration form it asks you for your birth date but only has a drop down for the year. Once you click and select that drop down then another drop down will appear with the option to select a month. The only reason that this is done is to try and reduce automated spamming system from registering on the forum and spamming the forum. Here are some diagrams that show the appearance of the date drop downs after you select them:

(Note: the registration page has been simplified and no longer looks like the images below but all the same fields are on the page but the order you fill them in is now a bit different.)
