Hi there, welcome to the new site. As you can imagine, there are a very large amount of member accounts being created at the moment. If you are currently awaiting approval for your account and wondering why it's taking so long, sorry! It shouldn't take much longer. Each and every account needs to be manually approved, and it is largely dependent on how many staff are actively online to do that. Thanks for your patience.
If you were a supporter on the old forum and wish to reclaim your purple name, you do not need to re-purchase supporter status. Instead, please make a post here and include your old forum-name for reference, and your supporter role will then be transferred.
