INSTRUCTIONS TO JOIN NEW SITE (STEP BY STEP)

Post by Barrovian » 15 Apr 2019, 14:49

Creating a Proboards/Aspie Village account should only take 5 minutes plus any time spent reading the Privacy Notice and Terms of service. However, if you read those from these links first, you won’t need to click on them during the registration process.

https://www.proboards.com/privacy

https://www.proboards.com/tos


. Ensure you have access to the email account you wish to register with.

. Close all other unneeded tabs on your computer.

. Using Google Chrome is recommended as not always possible to log-in on Edge.

. Click on http://aspievillageuk.proboards.com or click link on board index of existing site

. Click on Register

. Enter your email address

. Enter a password (containing both letters and numbers)

. Enter the same password again

. Enter your Name, your Birthday (not seen by us) and your Gender (male, female or other/decline to state)

. Select a Forum Username (the one you have one or very similar is recommended)

If necessary, click on the links for Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. These open in a separate box, and after closing them your registration page will still be there. Note: the other blue links are simply shortcuts to specific parts of the privacy policy.

. Tick both boxes once you have read both documents.

. Please prove you are human. Place a tick to the left of “I am not a robot”. Press “Submit”

Pending Registration

OPTIONAL REQUEST MESSAGE (if you are using a new username please let us know in this box)

. Activate

. Go to your email

. Check all folders including Spam Folder

If not received within a few minutes
. Click on Re-send Activation Email

Once you have an email from Proboards
. Open the email and click on the activation link or copy and paste the activation code into the registration page

You should then receive a message stating

“Success – Your account has been activated”

You may receive a message stating PENDING STAFF APPROVAL
If so, you will need to come back later, often it will be within 5 minutes but in some cases it will take a few hours.
Please note that the viewing the site as a guest option is not available as its a private forum.

Once you are approved

. select Log In again and enter your password.

This will take you into the new Aspie Village. Its simple to read the posts but there is a topic for rising questions about specific aspects of the site. Please ask, because we are learning too and we can make it better for future users.

I’ll add instructions for recovering a forgotten password under separate cover.

Finally, enjoy :)
THANK YOU FOR 15 YEARS OF ASPIE VILLAGE. WE HAVE MOVED HERE WHERE WE CONTINUE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE - SEE YOU THERE
