If you have a new email account and you never updated your profile, you'll need extra help. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Log-in Name vs. Displayed Name Your log-in name could be different than your publicly displayed name. Be sure you are entering your log-in name.
Check Your Typing If you're including a space where it doesn't belong, or omitting a space, your log-in or password will not work. Both your log-in and password are case sensitive. Be sure to double-check your typing. Almost all log-in problems are due to typing in your log-in or password incorrectly.
Remember Me If you'd like your computer to remember you, so you don't always have to type in your log-in and password, there's check box below the log-in and password fields called "Remember me on each visit"
