FAQs about the Discussion Forums

Postby Selene » 01 Nov 2017, 21:53

Q. Why is the site no longer open to the public?
A. Participation by non-OBOD members was very low and the forum had become an attractive target for spammers. In order to be able to maintain the site as a safe and useful resource for our members, it was decided to restrict access from the general public and from search engines.

Q. I'm an OBOD member and I know I registered an account a while back, but I can't log in.
A. A number of inactive accounts have been deleted. If you:
  1. Haven't logged in since November 2016 AND
  2. never posted or made only one post, THEN
you'll need to register a new account to get back on the forums. Follow the procedure outlined in About the Discussion Forums. If you don't have the access word that now is provided with your first set of gwersi (in the cover letter), write administrators@druidry.org for an alternate word, then follow the aforementioned procedure.

Q. I forgot my password and can't get the reset link to work.
A. That's an unfortunate intermittent problem. If the reset link doesn't work for you, write administrators@druidry.org and request a temporary password to use so you can log in and reset it through your profile.

Q. How long does it take for my access request to be processed? I sent it in but haven't heard anything.
A. Generally, we process requests within a few days. Occasionally it may be longer because the volunteers here aren't always able to work on the forum every day; depending on how crazy their lives are at the moment, it may take over a week. It's also possible that your email went astray. It doesn't happen frequently, but it has happened and it could happen again. Please treat us as you would your mentor: expect your request to be processed within a maximum of two weeks and if you haven't heard anything by then, please write again.


This list is a work in progress. If you have other questions, please write administrators@druidry.org and ask. I'll answer as soon as possible.
