Thank you for your interest in becoming a registered user of our website.
Here are some helpful things to know about the registration process:
2. What do registered users have access to that is different from what a visitor sees? Most of the site is identical whether you are a registered user or a visitor.Â There are three main differences.Â The first is that the church forums found under the "Our Forum" section are only visible to registered users.Â These forums allow for discussion, document sharing, announcements and more.Â The second is that any prayer requests that are made through the prayer center (and approved by the pastor) are only visible to registered users on the prayer listing and to the online prayer chain (which is also comprised of only registered users).Â The third is that artcles may be posted on the site from time to time which are meant for church attenders only and in such cases these articles will be setup so that they are visible to registered users only.
3. How do I register? If you click the "register" link, you will be asked for some basic information.Â After you give that information, you will be told that you should check your email account for a confirmation email from the website.Â Finding this email and clicking the highlighted link in the message helps us to know you are who you say you are.Â If you do not see this email check your "junk" or "spam" folder to make sure it wasn't mistaken for an unsolicited and unwanted email.Â After you have done this, the webmaster will be alerted that you want to be a registered user of the site.Â If you are part of the WACC congregation then the webmaster will accept your registration and you will receive a message saying you are now able to login when you come to the site using the username and password you selected.Â If the webmaster doesn't recognize your connection to the church then he will respond asking for more information or explaining who we allow to be registered users of the site.
4. How many people from a family can create their own username and password? We would encourage each individual user, including teenagers, to create their own personal username and password.Â This way, when you are logged in and post a response in the forums (eg. say that you could help setup for an event or give input about a proposed youth event) it will be clearer who is actually posting the response.Â Because each username is linked to a unique email address, two users cannot setup separate usernames connected to a single shared email address.Â In such cases, you may want to create a username like "SmithFamily" to show that the name is used by multiple people.Â You should then be sure to inlcude you individual name in any posts so it is clear who is responding.
5. I want to add a personal picture to my profile now that I am registered.Â Why isn't showing as soon as I upload it? Personal photos that are uploaded to be displayed with as your personal picture or avatar need to be approved by the webmaster before they can be seen by you and others.Â The webmaster will get an email asking that the picture be reviewed and approved.Â Once the picture is approved it will become visible whenever you post in the forums or another registered user looks at your profile.
