If anyone has problems with the registration process or activation after the registration, please use "The Ring" chat function or use our contact form (check link on the bottom left).
Throwholics gently suggests folks use their real name rather than an anonymous handle. People like to know who they're talking to. But either works. Also, you can use spaces for your username.
The first screenshot shows that no one is logged in, which means even as a guest one can use THE RING chat function. The guest only has to type in a username and can start taking part in discussions anonymously.
The second screenshot shows THE RING - chat function while being logged in as a registered user.
There are only two slight differences:
1. The box to type in the username is gone, since the username of the logged in person will be used automatically.
2. The smilies are being displayed. (No worries, guests can still use smilies, but they dont see the ones which are available)
