The BMWOR Forums have been imported from the old OR Site, however the old site used a very old platform and in the transfer only the Posts were able to be imported.

Nothing has been lost from the content of the Forums except the avatars and identities of those who have posted.  This also means that your ability to sign in using your old ‘sign in’ and password has gone.

To remedy that members will have to register for the forums again.  or go to, select Forums and then Forum Registration.

When your application is processed, you will receive a confirmation email with ‘log in’ and ‘password’ details. Once signed in you can Edit your profile, change your password and include an appropriate avatar.

I recommend that for items in the ‘For sale and wanted’ section, that the advertiser includes their name and contact details in the post.  If you have current posts in this area and are not identified, please email me at and I’ll edit the post to include your name and contact details.

A decision has been made that current BMWOR Members have access as of right as long as they stay a member of the OR.   Non OR persons have ‘read only’ access.

I will try and keep you updated with information after my meeting with the Web Designers on Wednesday 8 February 2017.
