To ensure that the forum runs smoothly, please take a moment to familiarise yourself with the following:

  • Please read the Forum Rules as this provides you with the details of you can and can't do on the Border Regiment Forum. You don't have to spend too much time reading through it.
  • Do use the FAQ section first if you encounter an issue with the site. It is possible the problem is explained in more detail there. Also available is the User Guide, which covers forum use in more detail. As a last resort contact us if the previous do no yield answers you are looking for.
  • Type clearly so that everyone can understand what it is you are saying; no unnecessary abbreviations, especially those used in texts.
  • Add your topics and/or posts to the relevant forums. This ensures that the forum maintains uniformity and the chances of getting a reply are increased. Topics posted in the wrong forums will be moved.
  • Ensure your topics have appropriate titles and not something generic. Also make sure titles are not too long, maximum of 60 characters allowed.
  • A maximum of three URL links only are allowed in each post, which is an anti-spam feature.
  • Do not use BLOCK CAPITALS in the main body of text unless stressing something particularly important.
  • If you upload an attachment image, ensure it is less than 500kb in size otherwise the system will reject it. Currently, attachment images will appear resized to a maximum of 400 pixels in width. Click on the image to see it full size.
  • Images can also be uploaded to the gallery and BBCode (preferred) or html can be used to link to that image in your post.
  • New users will have to make at least 5 posts before some other usability functions become available, such as sending personal messages. If, for any reason, these other functions are not available to you after making five posts, please contact us detailing the issue/s.
  • From time to time the forum will undergo changes and updates. If you are using the forum at this time and it appears to be down please wait a few moments or try again later.

Thanks for reading.
