Joining the forum is easy. Just click on the small login icon on the top right hand corner of each page of the Tropicana website, next to the Tropicana Logo where it says Log in.
You will be presented with a sign up form. It offers you the choice of signing up with Facebook. We strongly recommend that you do not use this option. The second option is to sign up with Google. Only do this if you have a Google account that is not linked to your real identity. The preferred option is sign up with an email address that you do not use for personal use.
Once you have joined you can customise the profile. This means you can change the header background on your profile. Upload a pic of your avtar and customise how you want your name displayed. We strongly recommend that you use your regular avatar name so that everyone knows you. After all, the purpose of this forum is to get to know each other better and to help share tips and advice about Tropicana and the OSgrid and Opensim in general.
