"Allan C., I'm going to have to ask you to choose another user name and use it consistently, and I would suggest that you should register as a member. The name Allan C. is already taken, by somebody in the United States."
Joe sorry for confusing folks. I am already a member and didn't know what the problem was. But I've been posting away from the original PC I registered on so posted under guest as I couldn't log on. I honestly thought my mudcat title was Allan C. Howvever now back at the original PC I find it is allanc. Over the past couple of days I've been posting under Allan Con so will change the membership details to that as obviously it's confusing to have an allanc and Allan C.
