Registering as a member

To post messages in our forums or upload to the Splitcoaststampers gallery, you must first register wirth a Username.


  1. Step 1

    There are a few places where you may register and join our community.

    On the home page (left hand side):

  2. In the Gallery (top, left-hand side):

  3. Step 2

    In the Forum (top, left-hand side):

  4. And if you click on "login" on the top right hand corner of your screen you will see this:

  5. Step 3

    And, no matter where you are on Splitcoaststampers, you will always see "join the community" in the top right hand corner of your screen.

  6. Please note:
    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.

  7. Step 4

    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".

  8. Step 5

    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: [email protected], and we'll help you!

  9. Step 6

    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.

  10. Step 7

    Click on Complete Registration and you're done! This is what you will see:

  11. Step 8

    After your first visit, you may need to log in by clicking on "login", found in the top, right-hand corner of your screen.

  12. Step 9

    Enter your Username and Password. Please check the box Remember Me if you're on your own personal computer. DO NOT check that box when you're on a public computer (such as the library or at a friend's house).

    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:
    "It appears you do not have permission to view this category. Please feel free to contact us if you believe you have reached this message in error."
    Please don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any questions or if something is unclear.

why an I not getting this site?

gloria rockwell  |  Mon Aug 17, 2009 at 7:40 AM

I got a new computer and when I finally got it hooked up and have found that ‘my gallery’ of all the cards I have saved over the last few years is gone.  Does it not recognize my new computer?  I am still getting the newsletter as my e-mail hasn’t changed.

Carol Ballinger  |  Thu Aug 27, 2009 at 10:53 AM

I’m sorry.  I clicked ‘my gallery’ instead of ‘my favorites’.  It must have been a ‘senior moment’.  I’ve having a lot of trouble getting used to the new computer.

Carol Ballinger  |  Thu Aug 27, 2009 at 10:57 AM

Help - I have asked for help in remembering my password and user name but I don’t know where to look in order to find it.

sue carson  |  Wed Sep 9, 2009 at 5:31 AM

How can I change my user name.  This is my full name and I would like to change it.  Thanks,

bluecrayons  |  Sat Sep 19, 2009 at 3:07 PM

I can’t seem to get the question right. I keep putting rubber in and it comes back saying not the right answer, so I can’t get registered. What do I do now?

Leah Relyea  |  Sat Sep 19, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Hi, Gail! You should have an email from me with more information about the swap forums. Have a happy day!

Jenn  |  Sat Sep 26, 2009 at 3:27 PM

I’m trying to post on the Swap Thread to join “Where are You From” but it says I’m not allowed to post or my account may be waiting activiation.  What’s wrong?  I AM logged in.

nekozet  |  Mon Oct 5, 2009 at 12:54 AM

Great question, nekozet!

The Swap Forum is special; it’s a ‘User Group’ forum and so you must become a member in order to participate. We’ve outlined how to join and other Frequently Asked Questions here:

(You have to copy & paste that link.)

I hope this helps!

I have tried several times with different names, but just can’t seem to register - can’t work out why? :(

Sue Andrew  |  Thu Oct 29, 2009 at 10:07 PM

Hi, Sue!

You said you’re unable to register with different names; does this mean you get stuck at Step # 5 ...the part where you pick your name? I wonder if you’re picking a username that’s already been picked…hmm. If you still haven’t been able to register, please send an email to : [email protected]   and describe what is/isn’t happening and someone will help you out!


avonlea  |  Fri Oct 30, 2009 at 10:03 AM

I have used two different email address to try to join and now both are not allowing me to access. I believe I need to start over as I have forgotten my user name as well as password on both email log-ins.  The other email is [email protected]  Please help

Deb Moore  |  Sun Dec 13, 2009 at 7:23 PM

I think i registered a long time ago and didn’t write anything down, how can I re-register with a new user name and password and still keep my e-mail.  thanks

sheila tietz  |  Fri Jan 15, 2010 at 1:49 PM
