NOTE: Once you register, your membership will be reviewed by Moncton Forums Staff. Upon registration, please allow up to 12 hours for approval process to complete. Once done, you'll be sent an email stating your status. If accepted (and the majority are) you'll have immediate posting privileges.

In order to fully utilize the abilities of this forum, we require that you register as a member. Registration is free, and allows you to do the following:

    * Post new threads
    * Reply to other peoples' threads
    * Edit your posts
    * Receive email notification of replies to posts and threads you specify
    * Send private messages to other members
    * Enter events in the forum calendar
    * Set up a 'buddy-list' to quickly see which of your friends are currently online

To register, you will need to specify a username and password, and a valid email address. Entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam', as you can choose to hide your email address, and messages sent to you via email do not reveal your address to the sender in any case. To register, please click here:

Forum Rules:

By joining / you agree to the following:

- No personal attacks

- No posting of others' personal information

- No profanity

- Avoid racial epithets

- Do not use any derogatory or inflammable language toward other members

- There is no harassment of others on this forum

- Use appropriate language. This includes your choice of nicknames

- Please do not give out or Post any personal information here about yourself or others

Editing your profile:

It is your responsibility to keep the information in your profile up-to-date. You should especially ensure that your email address is kept current. You can alter any of the fields in your profile, except your username. Once you have registered your username, it becomes yours for life. In extreme circumstances, you may request that the administrator change your username, but he or she will require a very good reason to do so. Change your profile by clicking the "Profile" button in the navigation menu

Changing your theme:

Remember, you can change your theme to your own preference by:

- Clicking on your profile
- To the left of the screen click "Look and Layout"
- Then click "Current Theme: Forum or Board Default (change)"
- Choose theme
- Done!


After you have registered, you may set your signature. This is a piece of text that you would like to be inserted at the end of all your posts, a little like having headed note paper.

If the administrator has enabled signatures, then you will have the option to include your signature on any posts you make. If you have specified a signature, then the forum will automatically append your signature to any messages you post. You can disable signatures on a per-post basis by un-ticking the 'Show Signature' checkbox when you compose your message.

You may turn the signature on and off on posts you have already made by editing the post and altering the state of the 'Show Signature' option.

You can set your signature by editing your profile.

Profile Pictures:

These small images are called Avatars. They are displayed below your username on all posts that you make. There are two kinds of avatars: those provided by the administrator and those that you upload yourself.

If the administrator has provided a set of avatars, and avatars are enabled, you may select an avatar that best describes your personality.

The administrator may also have enabled custom avatars, which allows you to upload an avatar image from your computer.

Reporting Posts:

If you see a post which you believe is in violation of any of Moncton Forum's rules, please use the "report to moderator" button at the bottom of the post in question.

All Member    Please read first!

Please note:

We all get emotional at times and use language, terms or abbreviations for words and phrases that don't show us at our best.

I'm as guilty as the next person. At times my blood just boils on here.

Our popularity is now such that that teens and preteens read this forum. Parents who follow us actually allow their children to do likewise.

That speaks volumes about our contribution to the community. Though adult in nature, we will always be a Community Forum.

Cursing ,swearing and their known abbreviations are not appropriate on a family friendly forum.

As adults I will ask all of you to avoid 'words and phrases'  that will reflect negatively on the Forum and you its members.

The words that might slip out of our mouths in a face to face situation, can be corrected here before we hit the 'Post' button.

Please keep that in mind.

There will be No personal attacks against other Members by posting libelous or defamatory statements.

We will not condemn personal or political beliefs on this Forum as long as they are not in violation of existing laws.

If you believe some one is in violation of the Law, or a topic is questionable, please bring it to the attention of the Administration.
