    Please note that you must register as a member and confirm membership prior to posting.


    Choosing a username

    For your safety, security and consideration we do not permit the following:

    • Usernames that consist of a first and last name, i.e. Katie_Donelly
    • Usernames that contain any part of your email address, i.e. KatieD343@ya
    • Usernames that are in any way vulgar, defamatory or abusive.
    • Usernames that are excessive in length or character use i.e. “~*!~CutebunnygirlEmmyStarshine_loves_rabbitzzz194~%$*~”

    If you have registered with any of the above – your username will be changed by the Forum Staff to something appropriate.

    Something to consider: If you are going to sign your posts using your real name, then please consider using that as your username. Most of us prefer to talk to “Jenna” as opposed to “I_Love_Rainbows_&_Horses256789027” ;)


    Confirming Your Registration

    Once you have completed the registration process, you will need to confirm your registration. Your account remains inactive until you have completed this step – which means you will not be able to login and post.

    You will receive an automated confirmation email from the Past Life Forum. You will need to follow the instructions and click on the link to activate your account – if you do not receive your email activation notice, please check your junk mail/spam folders.

    Last names ARE NOT a good idea. Please make sure you read the post above for hints, guidelines and suggestions for user names. ;)


    If you did include your last name - e-mail us and we can change your user name for you.

    Another newbie here. I used me real name on registering. I don't really have a problem with that, but if the moderators think it should be changed, then please feel free to do so.

    Welcome Yael. What a beautiful name. I have edited your name to reflect our policy of avoiding full names on the forum. It is for your protection. Enjoy the forum, I look forward to reading about your adventures in reincarnation.
