Registration & Login
Зачем нужно регистрироваться?
В зависимости от того, как сконфигурированы форумы, Вам, вероятно, необходимо будет создать учётную запись, чтобы получить возможность отправлять сообщения. В некоторых случаях регистрация необходима и для того, чтобы читать сообщения других пользователей, хотя обычно это можно делать и без регистрации. Напротив, другие форумы могут быть настроены так, что анонимный посетитель может не только читать чужие сообщения, но и оставлять свои. Однако, чтобы использовать все возможности, предоставляемые форумами, такие как установка собственного аватара (символического изображения), отслеживание количества сообщений, переписка с с посетителями форума по электронной почте, получение и отправка персональных сообщений, участие в частных форумах и многое другое, необходимо иметь учётную запись. Регистрация займёт всего несколько секунд, и мы рекомендуем сделать это.
Наверх
Как зарегистрироваться?
Чтобы создать учётную запись, следует посетить страницу Регистрации и заполнить форму. При этом Вы укажите регистрационное имя, которое будете использовать для входа в форумы, и адрес электронной почты. В зависимости от того, как сконфигрированы форумы, Вы либо укажите пароль для входа в систему, либо пароль будет выслан Вам по электронной почте в случае успешного завершения регистрации.
Наверх
У меня есть регистрационное имя и пароль. Как мне войти?
После успешного завершения регистрации, у Вас должно быть регистрационное имя и пароль. Чтобы войти в систему, нужно перейти на страницу входа в систему, ввести Ваше имя и пароль.
Наверх
Я уже вошёл в систему. Почему я автоматически выпадаю из неё?
Если при входе Вы не пометили опцию «Запомнить меня», сеанс регистрации автоматически завершится в случае достаточно длительного отсутствия активных действий с Вашей стороны, обычно после 20 минут простоя. Если Вы хотите, чтобы вход в систему всегда производился автоматически, пожалуйста, поставьте флажок рядом с надписью «Запомнить меня».
Наверх
Я забыл своё регистрационное имя и(ли) пароль.
Если Вы забыли своё регистрационное имя или пароль, Вы можете посетить страницу восстановления пароля. Регистрационное имя и новый пароль будет высланы по адресу электронной почты, указанного при создании учётной записи. Высланный пароль будет новым, так как система регистрации хранит пароли в зашифрованном виде, а дешифровка исходного пароля невозможна. После получения регистрационного имени и пароля Вы сможете войти в систему и изменить свой пароль.
Наверх
What if I’ve registered but still cannot login?
If you’ve registered and can’t login, check to ensure you have a valid username and password. If you are sure the username and password are valid, but still can’t login you may either require account activation or your account may be on hold. In this case it is best to contact the board administrator(s) or moderator(s).
Наверх
I’ve logged in before, but now can’t login?
First check to ensure your username and password are correct. If you still can’t login your account has either been put on hold or deleted due to inactivity. Please contact the board administrator(s) or moderator(s).
