Joining the community

This FAQ item will outline the advantages of joining this community and guide you through the steps of joining. It is simple and straightforward and will be done in a snap.

  • Only community members can ask to be given author status so that they can contribute content on the site
  • There may be some resources on the site that will be restricted to community members or to certain community members

Here's how to join:

  1. At the bottom of the Login panel on the Help/FAQ Page, click on the option to Create an account. (Use the Forgotten your username/password options on the Login panel if you have already registered but forgotten your username or password.)
  2. In the Registration form that opens, fill in the five fields -
    Name - First name and Family Name
    Username - this is the only name that will appear on your contributions on this community
    E-mail - this will not appear on the community but will be used to confirm your registration and communicate with you - take care to specify it accurately
    Password - it is worthwhile making this secure - find out more about strong passwords and check the strength of yours
    Verify Password - as you would expect
  3. Complete the captcha field if one is shown - this checks you are not some pesty spam bot
  4. Look for an email from the site asking you to click on an email link to confirm your registration - this checks that we have a valid and effective email address for you. If you do not appear to have received this confirmation email there are generally two causes:
    A. The confirmation email has been filtered by whatever spam filter you have in place either at your Internet Service Provider or on your local computer - you may need to enter the domain into your spam filter's "friends" or "whitelist"
    B. The email address you entered is incorrect - you may need to start over if you cannot correct it
  5. Once you have confirmed your registration, you are then right to log in as a community member!
  6. If you should get a message to say that the username or email address has already been used, then, if this is you, use the Forgotten your username/password options on the Login panel, or if this is another user, choose a new username or password.

This Help/FAQ item is designed to help people who are new to this Community. If you think it can be improved, please contact the webmaster.
