Due to the amount of spam that we are constantly trying to defend against it has been necessary to publish a change to both the forum rules and the forum FAQ.

The following changes are effective immediately:

Other Rules

1. Profile names should not be advertisements
Profile names should be real name or avatars, not advertisements. If your profile name is either a web address or the name of a product then this equates to it being an advertisement and you will be required to change it. You request to change it by following the FAQ entry called 'How do I change my username?'. If you refuse to change it you will be banned for attempting to spam our forum.
As noted in the above, there is now a new FAQ item that describes how you can make a request to change your username, which you can find here.

Thanks,
