In order to prevent unauthorised access to the site you need the passphrase to enter in the Passphrase Registration Control box just below the login form on the Homepage, and then press Submit.

Then complete all the details in the form that opens up. You will only need to enter the passphrase once on registration and on subsequent visits you just enter your username and password in the login form.

You will need to email admin@derbymetaldetecting.co.uk and request a passphrase. We aim to send replies to all emails within 48 hours.

YES. We do not pass your details to anyone other than to Committee Members of The Derby Artefacts Recovery Club to progress your application or to inform you of forthcoming events etc.

We do not sell your details to any company.

Firstly, for your safety, your password is heavily encrypted on the website and even the Web Administrator cannot access your password. Simply click on the Forgot your username or Forgot your password links below the login form.

There are a number of reasons:

  • The emails may be going into your spam/junk folder - please check and unblock our email address.
  • Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) sometimes blocks emails from websites who use mass emailing systems (as we do) - Contact your ISP and ask them to release any emails from www.derbymetaldetecting.co.uk.
  • If the above methods cannot be solved, you may need to check back at the site on a regular basis for news of events, cancellations, club digs etc.

There are two ways - firstly you can attend one of our monthly meetings - complete a form, and pay the current annual subscription rate. The meeting details can be found on the homepage or click the Events link at the top of the page.

Secondly, you can complete an online form and then attend the next meeting to pay the annual subscription - Click the New Member link at the top of the page and this, in turn, will take you to a page with various information and form links. Once the form has been completed it will be sent to a Committee Member to process when you attend for the first time.

There are two links on the site - Useful Links and New Member - these will give you plenty of important information but nothing beats chatting with some of the members at our meetings or events.

You need to be logged in. Click on the Photo Gallery link at the top of the page. Then select the User Panel link. Click the Upload button. Read the information boxes and enter the information in the appropriate boxes.

The other galleries have been locked out to prevent wrong category photos being uploaded in the wrong place.

Yes. Select the Drag 'n' Drop or Batch Upload links.
