I'm a new user. How do I register?   TOP

New users can register for this site with their existing Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Yahoo account. Click on the appropriate button (located at the top right hand corner of this page if you're not logged in already) to verify your account.

Note that Google accounts are NOT limited to Gmail accounts; any email address registed as a Google account can be used by clicking on the Google icon.

Once your account is verified, you will have the option to select a unique user name for this particular community. YOUR EMAIL WILL NEVER BE DISPLAYED PUBLICLY.

Is it safe to log in with an existing account?   TOP

Yes! The OpenID protocol (and its relatives, oAuth and Facebook Connect) provide a fast, simple and secure mechanism for registering and logging in. This approach makes it easy for legitimate users to register while making it more challenging for autobots, spammers, etc. to sign up. Your email address will never be publicly displayed and your password is not stored on our server. Say goodbye to filling out registration forms and hello to OpenID. Read more about the benefits of OpenID.

What if I don't have Facebook, Twitter, Google, or Yahoo?   TOP

We recommend one of two options. First, you can create a Google account using your existing email address. The process is straightforward and will take only a few minutes. Then you can use your existing email address to log in to this forum by clicking the Google button.

If you're feeling adventurous, and want to try Twitter, well, there's no time like the present. Click here to create a Twitter account and use it to log in on subsequent visits. Even if you don't use Twitter right away, at least you'll have an account ready when/if you decide to give it a whirl.

Can I add more than one account to my profile?   TOP
