Forum Registration

     Arimecibo Island, of which Magnus Bay Colony is a part, was originally conceived to be a backup for Our Doll Community (ODC). It was never intended to replace that website or to draw its membership away. This website was set up to have, as much as possible, the same look and feel of ODC. I cleared this with ourdoll1, the Our Doll Community website owner beforehand. The idea was to make the experience of this website as comfortable as possible for current ODC members.

     The major difference from Arimecibo Island is that Magnus Bay Colony is clothing-mandatory. Nude or sexually suggestive photography is not allowed. This portion of the website is intended to provide a gentler introduction to the doll hobby.

     To keep down the spammers, scammers, and other undesirables, registration for the forum requires e-mail verification. You must provide a working e-mail address in order to receive the verification e-mail.

Notes: For reasons completely unknown to me, some people are not getting e-mail from http://www.arimecibo.com. If you try to register for the forum and do not get the verification e-mail within 30 minutes,
send an e-mail to noquiexis@arimecibo.com, or
send a Personal Message (PM) to me at ODC and I will manually activate your account. Your account will be set up with a temporary password, which you should change the first time you log into the forum.

     To avoid confusion for current members of Our Doll Community, it is recommended that you use the same username at Arimecibo Island that you use at ODC. You may use a different password here, but do keep a record of that password.

     If it is evident that spammers, scammers, and other undesirables manage to register here, then forum registration will be reconfigured to "Administrators only". To register then, send an e-mail to noquiexis@arimecibo.com with your Our Doll Community username. You will receive a Personal Message (PM) there (at ODC) with your temporary password. It is recommended that you change this password on your first login here.

Gallery Registration

     Effective immediately gallery registration at Arimecibo Island and at Magnus Bay Colony will be by Admin only.
You must register for membership at Magnus Bay Colony before you will be granted a gallery here.
You must register for membership at Arimecibo Island before you will be granted a gallery there.
Once registered, send a Personal Message (PM) to noquiexis at Magnus Bay Colony (must be logged in) for a gallery here or
at Arimecibo Island (must be logged in) for a gallery on that part of the website.

     Your gallery will be set up with a temporary password, which you should change the first time you log into the gallery.

     It is recommended that you use the same username for your gallery that you have set for your forum membership, or the username that you have for your ODC gallery. You may chose a different username for the gallery, but do keep a record of your username and password.

For non-members of Our Doll Community

     If you try to register for the forum and do not get the verification e-mail within 30 minutes, see the "Notes:" section above.

     Our Doll Community was six years old before this website ever saw the light of day. They have a good-sized membership with a vast amount of knowledge and experience. It is recommended that you seek membership there before you register here, although that is not a requirement.

     Those who are in the United Kingdom may want to register for GibbMoDoll's UK Lovedoll Forum. You will find better local information there about dolls, clothing, props, doll meets, and other goods and services related to the doll hobby.

      I should warn you that Our Doll Community, the UK Lovedoll Forum, and the Arimecibo Island forum, gallery, and chat are neither "work safe' nor "family friendly". I deliberately did not provide links to them. Look them up at your own risk. If you have young children in your home, or if you are uncomfortable with nude photography, then you should set your browsers to restrict these destinations.

     You may be members of other doll-related websites if that is your wish. What you do away from here is your business. We encourage membership at other doll-related websites, as this will only improve the doll hobby and the doll community.

     Magnus Bay Colony and Arimecibo Island primarily cater to the doll hobby, but doll ownership is not a requirement for membership. Interest in the doll hobby is recommended, but that is not a requirement for membership. Those who are biased against the doll hobby should seek membership elsewhere. A gallery may be approved for non-doll owners, but this will be offered only on a limited basis. We are a small-time operation.

Notes

     Forum: "Sidebar menus" can either be helpful or annoying. To turn them off, login, go to Profile -> Look and Layout and uncheck the box in front of. "Use sidebar menus instead of dropdown menus when possible."

     Gallery: Do keep in mind that this portion of the website is clothing-mandatory. Nude or sexually suggestive photography is not allowed.

     The Arimecibo Island User Agreement (see "Island Rules") is only slightly more restrictive than Our Doll Community. No pictures  of anything of sexual nature inserted into a mouth, vagina, or anus; and no political advertising of any kind. There are only a handful of pictures of that nature at Our Doll Community.

   Avatar size for the forum is limited to a maximum width or height of 150 pixels (150 x 150).
   Attachments are disabled for the forum. You cannot link to pictures that are only on your computer.
   Any picture that you want to display on the forum or in chat must be online somewhere.
   You are not required to have a gallery here. You may link to your pictures if your gallery is elsewhere.
   All pictures, including those in links elsewhere, must comply with the User Agreement here.
   The web host does not allow videos to be hosted at the level of service purchased by the website owner.
   Upload of video file formats to the gallery has been disabled.
