Due to excessive bot signups along with nefarious actors we are limiting forum registration. Keep checking back for the register link to appear. Please do not send emails or have someone post to the forum asking for a signup link. Until the current climate changes we do not see a change of this policy. To join the forum you must have a compelling reason. Letting us know what skills/knowledge you will bring to the community along with the intent of your stay here will help in getting you approved.
I recommend you do a forum search instead of relying on creating another new thread because there's been many informative posts on this. Unfortunately, I feel like this is applies to several new topics lately: users are missing out on a lot of info by creating new threads from blank instead of resuming existing threads where whole in-depth discussions have occurred in the past.
