When you register for the first time, you will be required to provide a user name and an email address.
The website software will then generate a password for you and mail it to the email address that you supply.
When you receive the password you will be able to sign into the website using the sign-in form in the right sidebar. After you sign in you will be able to comment in the forum and to access your Forum dashboard. Choose the Forum link in the top menu bar again and then you will arrive at a page with links to take you either directly to the forum or to the Forum Dashboard.
For future visits, after you sign in, use the RSAA Forum link just below the sign-in area in the sidebar to bypass these pages and go directly to the forum area.
The Dashboard will show you the number of categories and comments and will provide a menu in the left sidebar.
The Categories link will show you all the categories of information and by hovering over a category name you will be able to click on the View link to access the information on the main Forum page. There is also a link to Add a new category of your choice.
The Comments Link works the same as the Category Link.
The last menu item is Profile. Here you can add your actual name and some information about yourself. At the bottom of the profile page there is an area for changing your password from the default value you received in the automated email. Be sure to remember your new password and click Save to make the changes to your profile.
