How to use GOLD forums

The forum is for general discussion, messages, comments and questions. 

We have attempted to make the forums as easy to use as possible. Some forum areas are only accessible to organisational members of GOLD. The public forum is open to anyone who registers as a user.

 

GOLD may move topics or posts to other areas if we feel it is more relevant.  We reserve the right to edit or delete posts considered to be inappropriate or offensive without warning.

 

 

Getting started – first time users.

 

The first time you use this forum, you need to register. Your email address will be your username, and you will choose your own password. Your full email address will NOT be displayed on your posts.

 

We will also ask you for the organisation to which you belong. This is so that we can verify that your organisation is a member of GOLD. If your organisation is not a member of GOLD, please click here .  Please note that if we do not receive confirmation of your affiliation with your organisation, we will reserve the right to revoke your access to the member’s only forum.

 

It will help us to know your interest in Lysosomal Storage disorders, so please select from the drop-down menu.

 

Once your registration is complete, we will send you a confirmatory email and you will be able to access the forums and post messages. We will verify your organisation’s GOLD membership.

 

You will then be registered with the forum. Next time you visit, just go to the login area, and type your username and password.
