Being a community member is free. The only requirement is an email address, Facebook account, or Google account for sign up. In the future, it will also be possible to sign up with a mobile phone number.
If you are new to the site and want to sign up with a Google account, click the red Google Login button. If you want to sign up with a Facebook account, click the blue Facebook Login button. If you want to sign up with email, click the bright green button at the bottom of the page that says New? Sign Up. Clicking the green button that says New? Sign Up will redirect you to a sign up page where you can enter your name, email address, and a password.
You will receive a welcome email to the email address that you entered or to the email address associated with your Facebook or Google account. Click the green Confirm button in the email to verify the address and complete the sign up process. When you click the Confirm button in the email, it will redirect you to a welcome page where you can choose language, location, and email notification settings. These preferences can be updated at any time from your personal account page. When you return to the site, you will be automatically logged in.
If you signed up by email and cannot remember your password, click the green Forgot password? link on the Log In page.
The link will open a new page. Enter your email address and click the Submit button. If the email address is active on the site, a password reset mail will be sent to that email account. Click the green Reset Password button in the email to verify the request.
When you click the Reset Password button in the email, it will open a reset password page in a new browser tab. Enter and confirm a new password and click submit. You will be automatically logged in to the site.
If you can't remember how you originally signed up, search your email accounts for the welcome mail from firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter that email address into the Log In page. If you signed up with Google or Facebook, you will receive a pop-up notification that lets you go directly to the site.
