Press ENTER on your keyboard. A new window opens, and in the 'Members Login' window click on (if you are not yet a member): Join Us - it's FREE
Fill in the page that opens (click on question marks if unsure about an entry). Ensure that you make a note of the password you nominate. Then click: I Accept
You will then receive an e-mail in the account that you have given as your contact address. You must reply to this e-mail to confirm its receipt, by clicking on the http link in the text of the message.
After this you can log in to mc2, by typing in your e-mail address and password (which you selected). It is recommended that you add the mc2 homepage address to your Favourites so that you don't need to type in your address and password in future. Once logged to mc2, click on: Join a Community

You can open all newsletters, forums, guest books, chat rooms, event calendars, polls, links, member lists, and of course the homepages themselves. The homepages are opened from the front page that opens when you log in (small house icon), all other facilities are listed on the left of front page.
