Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why can't I login?

Failure to login results from several reasons. First, the username and/or password used may not agree with the ones you entered when you joined/registered. If you have forgotten either one, click on the links ("Forgot your username or password?") just under the login box, and you can change either one. If you can not remember either and you are not able to login because your email address is already registered, contact the administrator to have your email address deleted. Second, if you have violated the site ground rules (e.g., use of profanity), you may have been banned. Contact the administrator if you have any other questions.

Why do I need to join or register at all?

You don't have to, but it gives you the privilege of commenting on articles, writing blogs, and interacting in the Community section of the website. Member registration also gives you the ability to create a personal profile, or import it from Facebook, including an avatar image or photo, private messaging, emailing of fellow users, group discussion, etc. It only takes a few moments to register so it is recommended you do so.

I've lost my password!

Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved, it can easily be reset. Visit the login page and click I've forgotten my password. Follow the instructions and you should be able to log in again shortly.

What are announcements?

Announcements often contain important information for the group you are currently reading and you should read them whenever possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the group to which they are posted.

What are groups?

Groups are collections of members that share an interest in the group theme. Each member can belong to several groups. Any group members can start a discussion within the group by clicking on ?Create discussion? In the area with the heading "Discussion." You can join a group by going to the "Groups" area of "Community" and from the list of groups, click on one to join.
