Is this true?

No - and it's just a crappy website that posts a load of junk anyway. I doubt it's even properly moderated.

Oh Ok but you name is copy right, right? "Copyright © 2005 - 2013 LIGHTNING UK!"

The easiest way to protect your individual rights without spending a huge sum for a copyright is to print out all of your coding, pictures, web pages and seal it in an envelope.  Place the sealed envelope into another that is addressed to you and use the postal service to deliver it to yourself, it will then have a cancellation date on the postage stamp.  Put the envelope away, unopened, and repeat the process every time you update or make a major change to your property.  The envelopes must remain unopened and should have a cancellation date that is before you post your product or website online.  That way, if someone accuses you of infringement or there is any other attempt to hijack your property you have protected yourself in court.  I know that a lot of writers use this method and can't see why it wouldn't work.

How that would work mailing you self a mail of the coded ext and that makes it copy right?

That protects your property if it ever gets used without your permission and allows you a strong positive attack in court if it comes to that.  It's not a copyright, it's proof that the development work and final project was yours.  I don't know what you have to go through in South Africa to get a copyright.  Maybe there is a S.A. website you can check.

Because you'd have created it, sealed it up and sent it to yourself before the other person claims (and can provide proof) they did.
