Some reports have been received regarding Registration problems.

Most of the technical information I can find suggests that there are technical “disagreements” between two servers (your hosts, and the Horslips server), firewalls, refusals for certain emails to be sent (automated emails are sometimes treated as spam by your Internet service Provider.)

If you have problems, we can get around this. Go to the Manual Registration link.

If you fill in the required details (the Username you want, and a working email – and a password*) for Manual Registration. Site administration will do the rest at the touch of a virtual button.

* If you don’t supply a password, one will be supplied for you – you can change these details upon login. Site Admin does not know or see passwords.

All 5 members of the band are in favour.

A new interactive site has been under consideration for a significant length of time.

It is hoped that this site will provide much more functionality for the visitors who truly want to contribute to the site.
The motivation is to replace the Guestbook facility which, in days gone by, was a happy playground for the true fans. The openness of the guestbook was ultimately its downfall. Spammers, self-appointed wit-merchants, and those engaging in defamatory activities made it unusable.

It has become too risky to host some material on the server, what with litigious activity becoming more normal on the 'net. The moderation work (removal of dodgy material) generated a low effort:reward ratio.
That said, the new advantages outweigh previous problems - for the real fan/visitor who want to value-add or even just take part in this site.
Believe it or not, this is more about protecting the site for use by the true fans, to protect the site from closure by the hosts, and to protect the band from legal action, (ok and reducing the amount of work for the admin.) It's your site – you’re fully invited to use it.
