So I finally worked out why I was unable to post anything... it took me awhile. I'm not the most creative person when it comes to choosing usernames, so I made it simple; I chose one that represents where my name (Lauren) comes from. I've actually already attempted to create a new account once, but I didn't realise that it would be deleted so fast and therefore didn't post as quickly as I perhaps should have. I understand why it was removed; I imagine that there are rather a lot of new accounts being created at any one time and a lot of them are spambots.
I've been a member of this forum for several years now under another username, lauren.downie96. However, I've not used that account properly in over a year and so I decided to create a new one for a variety of reasons. When I registered back in 2011, I was only 14 and if I were to look back at some of my earliest posts, I would probably find them incredibly embarrassing. I was a typical teenager; immature and quite naïve. I've changed a lot since then and I don't really want to be associated with some of the things I wrote on that account. I'd rather wipe the slate clean and start again.
I hope to be a little more active than I have been in the last few years; I look forward to playing games again and getting back in touch with people that I've not contacted in a while as well as talking to the newer members.
I'll sign off for now, I hope everyone's having a great day.
