If you cannot login, consider the following:
a) Check your caps lock key. User names and passwords
are case sensitive. 'smith' and 'Smith' are not the same to a
computer. This applies to both your username and password!
b) Your username should be your first initial and last name. For example 'jsmith' for 'John Smith'. There are a few exceptions to this though because of duplicate names.
c) Your password should have been randomly assigned and sent to you in an email. Remember that the letters and numbers should be typed exactly as sent to you. The letters are case sensitive. If you subscribe to the email news list, the username and password for that are DIFFERENT than for the web site.
d) If you still cannot log in, email firstname.lastname@example.org and
request a password reset.
