In defence of the forum / phpBB's default sign-up process, it appears you've managed to get confused over your date of birth and declared yourself to be under the age of 13.

Lucky they didn't ask me that.

They'd have to dig them up!

Rules are an interesting read:

"2.0 - Copyright

Except for the images in the links (which despite being blurry, are clearly someone else's work) on the home page...

I suppose on a technicality they're only the rules for people who choose to sign up. No one ever said the people who own the forum had agreed to follow them. And they'd been working hard on this for several months behind the scenes remember, so long before those rules existed.

At least there aren't any rules now telling you to not post discussion about radio in the radio forum. Though something about the new set does remind me a bit of the rules for Digital Spy... ... guidelines
