Welcome to The Shadowmusic Web Community. Guests are welcome to read many of the forums without registering but you will need to register if you want to post messages and you'll find more forums once you've done so, mostly the ones containing the more interesting technical postings, downloads, sound files and pictures

Registration is a simple process but you will need to be approved by an administrator before you are activated.

In order to help maintain a professional atmosphere, members are required to declare their real full names at registration and that name will be displayed on all posts and profile views.

We appreciate, however, that some people may have a very good reason not to want to have their real name displayed in which case please use the Real Names field to write a brief note to the administrators at the time of registration. We will require to know member's real names, however, even if it's not displayed.

Members are welcome to use any reasonable username they like. There are just two exceptions. Anything offensive, containing or intimating bad language or someone else's real name without their permission.

If you have problems registering, please send an e-mail to and we'll be able to help you.

Many Thanks,

Hi all

Please note the above comments about supplying real names. If you fail to do this, or contact us explaining why this is not appropriate, then your application will not be processed and you will have to start all over again...

Why are we so fussy about this? Simply because people who supply their names take personal responsibility for what they write and anonymous "flames" and insults are minimised. It makes this a much nicer place to be...
