Changes to User Registrations

This is a bit of housekeeping business to handle.  We try to keep this to a minimum but this is important for all users, both those with and without FREE membership accounts, to know.

We have experienced some difficulties with the registration format.  It caused some problems for new members that prevented them from logging in and from using the automatically generated password.  We have fixed these problems.

Additionally, we made some other changes to the registration format.  As always we strongly suggest that you Register Your FREE Account to fully utilize this blog.  The #1 benefit to this is that you can Write Your Own Posts, which automatically publish to the blog.


We have changed the confirmation deadline from 3 to 5 days.  You must confirm your registration in order to log in.  You receive an e-mail with a link to confirm your registration.

You may now create your own password during registration.

You must agree to our License Agreement and Privacy Policy (see both when you Register Your FREE Account)

You must only answer a simple math question (addition or subtraction) to prove you’re not a robot.  This replaces the math or CAPTCHA question.

In addition to the above changes we manually added all users who were blocked because of the problems.  

We have removed users who asked us to or who do not have valid e-mail addresses.


We strive to make the registration process inclusive, accessible, and intuitive.  We greatly regret the inconvenience caused by the technical glitch.  We try to create a positive user experience for all on this blog.  If you have any suggestions, comments, or constructive criticism please send them to us at cwfgamecast [at] wargamingforums [dot] com (replace [at] with @ and [dot] with .) and we will gladly read and respond where appropriate.
