And, no matter where you are on Splitcoaststampers, you will always see "join the community" in the top right hand corner of your screen.
In certain forums you may post without being a member or without signing in, but your post will appear under the username "Unregistered" and you will need to answer a question.
Once you've clicked on on of the options above, you'll need to read the Forum Rules and then check the "I have read, and agree" box. Then click on "Register".
Next, you need to choose your User Name. You may want to choose a nickname or pseudonym rather than using your own name. Please do NOT use your email address. You will also need to choose a password and enter your email address. You'll need to repeat your password and email address respectively to make sure there isn't a typo. You will also need to answer an easy question (this is to help prevent spammers).
Note: Please choose your User Name carefully, as we will only change your User Name if you wish to go from your real name to a pseudonym, not from one pseudonym to another. To request that we change from your real name to a pseudonym, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll help you!
Specify your Time Zone
Unless you're in the default Time Zone, which is Pacific Time, you will need to click on (GMT -8:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada). You will see a list of all the world wide time zones from which to choose. This way whenever you see a "timestamp" on our site it will be relative to where you are located.
Click on Complete Registration and you're done! This is what you will see:
After your first visit, you may need to log in by clicking on "login", found in the top, right-hand corner of your screen.

If you are not logged in, you will only be able to post as an Unregistered user in certain forums and you'll notice certain things will be "missing", such as Stampin' Up's Mini Catalog & Previews Gallery. You will then get this message:
