- #1 Community & Forum for Crossdressers, Family and Friends FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

Why Was My Account Not Approved?

There are several reasons why your account wasn't approved.

  • Using a username that is inappropriate for the forum. See more information here.
  • You already have an account.
  • You have been previously banned and are not allowed back on the forum.

If you feel you fit into none of the above reasons, please feel free to use the Forum Feedback and state why.

Using Fake/Incorrect Email Addresses When Registering

When you register, please take care when you type in your email address. Make sure you use a real one or your account will be deleted. If you have entered your email address incorrectly, please use the Forum Feedback and let us know A.S.A.P to correct it.

Activating Your New Account

When you receive your activation codes, you will have 14 days from the date you registered to activate the account. You will receive an email in your inbox. You MUST follow the link in that email before you can post on these forums. Until you do that, you will be told that you do not have permission to post.

Please note, if you fail to activate your account, it will be deleted.

I Didn't Receive My Activation Codes, I Can't Activate My Account.

Use the Forum Feedback and request them to be sent again. Please include the username and email address you registered with.

I Can't Post, But I Activated My Account?

Once you have activated your account, it then has to be verified by an Administrator. You will not be able to post until this has been done. New accounts are usually approved within 24-48 hours.

No Permission Page / Restricted Access?

You do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons: -

  • Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Members who have less than 10 posts have restrictions on their account.
  • If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
  • Read here for further information.

What Happens if I Break the Rules?

At best your post/thread will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a PM notification. If the offense is more serious your post/thread will be deleted and you will be contacted by a member of staff. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse so please don't.

Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued a temporary ban - your posting privileges will be disabled for a minimum of 7 days to 1 month.

For persistent and or deliberate rule-breakers your account will be banned. That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and your account will no longer function. If you re-register, your new account will be banned immediately and any new threads/posts will automatically be removed, regardless of their nature.

Why Have I Been Banned?

The most likely reason is constantly breaking the forum rules. If you feel you have been banned unfairly, use the Forum Feedback. This will be reviewed by Tamara Croft.

Reasons For an Automatic and Permanent Ban From the Forum: -

  • The posting of explicit pornography, either by photographs, illustrations, or text.
  • The use of stolen photographs and claiming them as yourself.
  • Joining to post/spam your business without prior permission from the Administrators, this is a support forum, not a place for you to post free advertisements.

How Do I Upgrade My Membership?

The simple answer is, you don't. A new member that has between 1 and 9 posts has limited access. Once you have posted your 10th post, you automatically move on to the registered member list within an hour. You may then apply for the private/invite only sections.

The Forum Keeps Asking Me To Log In, Why?

The forum has a session timeout. This feature is enabled for security reasons, i.e - using a PC at a library. If you forget to log out and you don't have the 'remember me' box ticked, the forum will log you out after 30 minutes.

If you are getting logged out after logging in, this is most likely a cookie issue, they tend to get corrupt on this board for some reason. Log out of the forum, delete the cookie/temp internet files from this forum, log out first, log back in and tick the remember me box and see if that fixes the issue.

Deleting Cookies

Deleting Temporary Internet Files

If you are at home and wish to remain logged in until you are finished on the forum, then tick the 'remember me' box. This will keep you logged into the forum until you log back out.

Please note, that if you share your PC with your partner etc and you both have accounts on the forum, remember to 'log out'.
