    As the dutiful netizen I am, I attempted to read the link to the forum's policy and TOS required for registration...only to find out you have to have a registered account to access it! ;-P

    To quote a selection of the registration page:

    "You are required to follow this link and read through our Rules, Code of Conduct and Terms and Conditions of Usage before you register."

    "This link" refers to http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/announcement.php?a=3 which is ironically only accessible to individuals already registered! Pretty funny error, although it makes it pretty clear no one reads these policies prior to registration, or it would have been fixed long ago. The admins may want to consider fixing this for the .0000001% of people that might actually try to read it.

    Ohh, and even with a newly registered account It says I still don't have sufficient privileges to access it. :rolleyes:

    You may find you don't have sufficient privileges to access several pages and/or options (like a signature line) until you have made 10 posts. Once there, you will have (for the most part) unlimited access throughout the forum.
    Anyway, welcome to AAC!
    Regards,

    Sorry about this. The ToS has been moved to http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/l_tos.html

    The webmaster has been altered to the problem in the registration text and it will be amended shortly to point to the correct ToS.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    D'oh!

    Teach me to write quickly on a mobile device! I will leave it there for all the world to see.

    The link in the registration dialog has now been fixed and points to the correct ToS page.

    Thanks for pointing this out.
