Growing up, I used to love coming home after school, grab a PBJ and milk, and watch all my favorite afternoon shows on our black & white RCA. One such show was 'Password.' One member of each team was given a word, and they had to try to give clues, using other words, to get the other member to correctly guess the word within a specified time frame.
Here on ActiveRain, the learning curve can seem incredibly HUGE and intimidating at times. People join our community with such a diverse level of knowledge and skill levels. We've tried to leave as many helpful 'clues' as possible to make your experience here less daunting, and more enjoyable.
Earlier this morning, I received the following e-mail:
You've received a contact message from your Contact Form on the ActiveRain network.
Message details: From: Joan Wickman Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Changing Password and E-mail Address (Sent via Activerain)
Writing in frustration... trying to change and it is difficult finding the subject in the q&a.
Many of us are the 'Early Adaptors' and have readily embraced/immersed ourselves in social media and emerging technologies. But there is an overwhelming majority of potential members out there who aren't as brave or bold (at least when it comes to things related to technology). What seems easy and trivial to us can appear insurmountable and frustrating to others. As such, we need to leave more clues, and make the learning process easier, especially for new members.
Joan, in answer to your question, I offer the following easy steps:
When you log onto ActiveRain, using your user name and password, the system automatically takes you to your 'My Home' page. Over on the left hand side of the page, just below your name, there is a column of links. Go down to the one entitled 'My Profile (Edit).' Take your mouse cursor, and click on the word (Edit). This takes you to the page where you can edit your Profile information.
You will notice just above the first yellow field for your First Name, is the link for 'Change Password.' If you click on this, you can change your password. Make sure to click on the button 'Change Password' when you are done.
The Profile Editing Page allows you to input and update all your business/contact information, identify your primary markets, and create custom sections to showcase you and your business.
Make sure that you click on the 'Save Profile' button before closing out.
One of the primary goals of ActiveRain is to create a community that fully engages the talents and knowledge of our members for the benefit of our industry as a whole. The Staff at ActiveRain is committed to providing an environment that encourages personal/professional growth, and tools that offer significant benefit to your business.
If you're a new member of our community, make sure you spend some time going through our official ActiveRain Starter Kit skillfully put together by our cherished Community Builder, Brad Andersohn.
In addition, we've assembled a great collection of helpful tutorials on a wide range of topics that you can access by simply going to the bottom of any page, and click on the link, 'Help/FAQ'
