Still having problems? Why not use Skype to contact us at no charge! Whether you use Skype for a voice call, a typed chat or to leave us a voicemail, Skype is free to download and free to use. If you already have Skype installed, click on the Skype FW options on the right of this page to contact us.

As a last resort, use your telephone to give us a call. We are not always available to take your call but if we are not, the voicemail will be there! Both telephone numbers reach us in the UK but you only pay the national rate (if you're in the UK or US). The time now at FW is shown on the right (for reference) but whatever the time, give us a call, we may be around!

The activation email sent during the ForumWales registration process is automatically generated and may have been classified as spam/junk by your ISP or email client filtering rules.

2) What are 'ranks' and what ranks are available?
Ranks help members and visitors identify a member's 'status' within the Forum. Ranks are automatically assigned based on the number of messages (posts) made by an individual member.

In addition to ranks which are 'earned' through posting, there are also a number of 'special' ranks which are assigned to individual members by the ForumLead.

The following table details the ranks available.
