Frequently Asked Questions :

How do I become a site member?


Website Membership is ONLY available to current OATS members. From the top main menu, select either 'Log In', 'FORUM', or 'MEMBERS' You will then arrive at one of these screens ... or ... Click on 'Sign Up' or 'Get Started' depending on what screen you get. You will then be prompted for an email address and password. Email address MUST be a valid working address. Please use a secure password. This password is NOT visible to any OATS members or Committee. A confirmation screen will say that your application has been submitted Once you have been confirmed as a current active OATS member (we'll respond to this as quickly as possible), you will receive a 'Welcome! Confirm Your Email' email. These auto responses can occasionally get filtered to your Junk folder. Please check there, and if necessay, please add to your safe senders list. In that email, you will need to click on the 'Confirm Your Email' button, before you have access to the OATS site. This process should be a one-off procedure. As a member, you will now have full access to view and contribute to the OATS Forum, plus the MEMBERS area, where you can amend your profile should you wish, and be able to direct message other members without needing to divuldge your personal contact details.
