- How can I add an email list to an
If you are the person who first created an event then a link on the
page that gives the full description of the event should appear
that allows you to edit the email lists associated with the
event. Note that you must be logged in to use this. (If you cannot
log in please see the question about problems logging in.)
The page will allow you to delete the email lists that are
associated with the talk and allow you to add new email lists. When
you submit a request to send an email about the talk the email will
go to all people who are signed up for the email lists associated
with the event.
- I entered an event but it does not
appear. What happened?
There could be many reasons for this. First, make sure that you
click through the confirmation page after submitting an event. Once
you first type in the event information you are asked to confirm
that the information is correct. For the information to be saved
you must then click on the button to save the information as a
If you are sure that the information has been entered and confirmed
then there may be a problem with the server. For example, the
database may have a problem. If you think that this might be the
case please contact the system administrator.
- What is the deal with the
This is a way for people to post a comment or question about the
talk. It is a way to give people a way to provide feedback.
Unfortunately, this can be easily abused. We hope that the overall
benefit will outweigh the abuses. We apologize for the trolls and
only hope that you do not try to give them the attention that they
are trying so hard to provoke. (i.e. do not feed the trolls.)
- Why do I keep getting the %@## login
This is happening for one of three reasons. The first, most likely,
explanation is that you are trying to access a page that you do not
have permission to use. Whenever you try to access a page without
the proper permissions it is assumed that you are not correctly
logged in. The other reasons could be that you are giving the wrong
email address or the wrong password.
See the topic below for more information.
- How come I cannot log in?
You might not be giving the correct user name and password. It could
also be that you are trying to access a page that you do not have
permission to use. (Please see the topic above.)
Another thing that can cause problems with logging in might be a
problem with cookies. Your browser must be set to accept cookies
from this site in order to use all of its features. There might
also be a problem with cookies if someone else has tried to log in
from your computer. You might want to try to force a logout
to reset the cookies on your browser. (Click on the link to force a
If you feel that the password that you are using is not correct
then you can request that your password be changed on the
log in page. (Click the link titled "Did you forget your
The page to reset your password can be found
When you submit this request your password will be changed, and the
new password is sent to your email address.
- Why must I log in?
The log in system is a minimal way to provide some
security. Granted it is not a strong security system, but we need
something in place to make sure that the ability to post events and
comments is not abused.
- What do you do with the
The log in information is used to send out emails about events that
are associated with your account. We do no not make your email
address available to anyone else.
- How do I sign up?
A link to the sign up page can be found on the
log in page. The page to create an account can be found
here. When you sign up your password will be sent to the email
address that you provided.
- How come I never got my password?
There could be many different reasons to explain this. First, the
email may have been sent but you just have to wait a little longer
for it to be delivered.
Another reason might be that the wrong email address was given or
you ran out of disk space with your email account. Another
potential problem is that the email was sent but got marked as
spam. Finally, there might be a problem with the server, and it was
not able to send out the email. If you think that this might be the
case please contact our system administrators and let them know
what is happening.
One thing you might want to try is to just reset your password. It
could be that the email was sent but was not delivered. Resetting
the password will give you a new password and an email will be
