Registration Agreement

MOST IMPORTANT: To Register for this local interest group you must have an IP address from Australia. If you don't, your request will be deleted without notice. Having an email address ending in .au is the only other way a non-AU IP will be allowed through.

Usernames should preferably include your actual first name and whatever of your surname you want, or be a real nickname, or at least a legitimate sounding nom-de-plume. Reasonable attempts at humour will be tolerated. Usernames cannot be email / web addresses or commercial names that are unrelated to this forum's main purpose or for products / services you don't represent. Some latitude will be given for sensible names but please remember we are really only about playing with our Ducatis so it is who you are that matters most.

If you really do want to register from an IP outside Australia or an inappropriate sounding name (you will know as you got a rejection email), send an email to webmaster@ (you know) and give a plausible reason and no worries, you are most welcome and we will sort it. If you don't know where your IP is based go here: and click LookUp. If you request to register from a non-Australian IP your request will be deleted without explanation, otherwise you will get an acceptance email. Sorry that is how it has to be in this world full of spammers, some of whom we haven't already set up a country level IP block and are they able to get through the test questions. If your registration is approved, please conduct yourself sensibly, play nice, or just sit back and wait for the occasional newsletter / forum announcement email. Oh, and the important gobbledygook - please note the following info:
