I'm far from computer illiterate or anything but I'm going mental here trying to find out where to go to put up new posts. How'd u do it.

Oh and I set up a mail account ages ago, never used it and now I cant remember the password so I wanna start a new one and get rid of the old one only I cant. Its a real pain.

Anyone wanna shed some light on this debacle?

Go to the forum you want to post in and click the new thread button on the top left, under the red bar.

And what mail account are you talking about?!
