New Member Registration Tutorial

New Member Registration Tutorial

The following tutorial describes how the new member registration process works, along with step-by-step visual aids. If you are not so computer-savvy and/or are not familiar with online forums, you definitely want to review it before attempting to sign-up. I have gone though the process - step-by-step - to ensure it as easy as possible.

Based on my experience and members' feedback, 99% of sign-up issues are typically related to not following the instructions or not typing something in exactly as it was originally set-up. Missing spaces, extra spaces, or incorrect letter case will cause issues with signing-up.

One other important issue is that you must use the following address to sign-up as a Registered Member. Once registered, you must use this address to log-in and access your personal account:

http://www.caught-the-skunk.com

Note: If [after reading this tutorial] you still cannot sign-up (e.g., you get a message saying you are a "spammer"), please e-mail me @ chiefskunk@caught-the-skunk.com for further assistance.

___________________________________________________________________________

1. Enter your DATE OF BIRTH: Month, Day, Year

4. Enter your ZIP CODE, LOCAL COUNTY that you live in, FULL STATE NAME, FAVORITE FISHING LOCATION, and HOW YOU HEARD ABOUT THE WEBSITE (please be specific; e.g., Which Facebook Page? Which fishing flea market? Where online? etc.).

step 4 additional information


5. If you were REFERRED BY a fishing buddy, enter his/her Caught-The-Skunk.com username (if you do not enter the exact username, you will receive an error "Invalid Referrer Specified").
