Doubts about the forum:

I cannot login!
This can happen to some users, so we recommend cleaning your cookies from your pc before login. If after doing this you cannot login either, send an email to the administrators.

Problems in some topics...
There are topics that when you try to access them the message “No topic exists” shows up.
When we changed hosts, we decided to save our database and put all the old posts to the new forum. Some of the topics do not work properly, so we ask you to ignore them and write in the new ones. We thought it was a better idea to lose some post that losing it all.

Why do I have always to register and post?
This is a forum dedicated to Tom fans only, and not dedicated to lurkers. Your continuous participation is essential.
