Accessing the forum (No replies)
In order to create a new topic (thread) or respond to an existing one, you need to have a user account. Without logging in, you can still read the contents of the forum with the exception of the MCR Members only section.
The Log in menu option will display the Login form which will prompt you for your Username and Password.
If you were a member of the previous forum, your user account has been transferred over, however you will have to reset your password by pressing the “Forgotten Password?” button on the log in form. You will be prompted to enter your username or email address and will receive a new generated password by email. This password will not be very friendly but you can change it by logging in and selecting the “My Profile” option at the bottom of the page.
If you haven’t previously registered for a user account then press the “Register” button on the Login form and complete the registration details; the Username must be unique and may be your name or some other “handle” if you prefer. Please make sure the email address is accurate, if it is not, you will not get your confirmation and will not be able to receive notifications when new content is added to the web site or forum. The password must be at least 8 characters long. If you are not a member, enter 0 for the membership number. When you have completed the form and pressed the “Register” button, your details will be checked and your level of access granted. This is a manual check so please be patient, you will receive an email when you have been cleared to login. Unfortunately this check is necessary because of the high level of bogus attempts to register.
If you are not a member of the club, you will be able to create new topics and respond to existing ones, if you are a member, you will also be able to access the MCR Members only section.
Please note that the login for the Mini Cooper Register web site and forum is not the same as for the membership administration site where you join/renew your membership and add details of your car.
