Improved Member Registration Allows Just an Email Address


Guide

We now allow guests to post feedback without registering an account in this forum. Scroll below about Active vs Inactive members

Voting Member
The RRDi has now over 1000 charter members who have graciously joined providing contact information so that they can vote in our decision making of who serves on the board of directors every five years. If you want voting member status we require more than just an email address to vote. We understand that many of you do not want to provide such information so that is why we have setup the non voting member group discussed below. 

Non Voting Member Who Register an Account 
We have now opened up our membership to anyone who will provide an email address without giving us all the contact information. These new members who do not provide full contact information (only providing an email address) will not be able to vote for who serves on the board of directors, but will have posting privileges in the forums with access to the website. We hope to increase our membership since many are reluctant to join if they have to provide contact information. This way, only those who really want to vote will graciously provide such information if they want to, or, opt to be a member and be totally anonymous, with only providing an email address.  

By only providing an email address we are also allowing those to use their Apple or Facebook accounts to register an account with our forum, as well as Microsoft, and Google accounts. If you have any issues with registering an account, please use our support form or contact form and describe the issue so we can improve our registration process to make it as easy and user friendly as possible. By using one of the following sign in accounts below (Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google) it should be easy peasy (if not let us know). We are still working with Twitter and Linked in about this but you can use Apple, Facebook, Microsoft or Google login credentials with the RRDi it should be the easiest registration.

Changing to a VOTING MEMBER
If you join with just an email address you are a member, however you are NOT a VOTING MEMBER. If you are a non voting member and want to become a voting member read the paragraph above on Voting Member, that explains providing contact information allows you to vote. If you do indeed provide us with your contact information, i.e., first and last name, mailing address, phone, alternate email address in your PROFILE, and want to be considered a VOTING MEMBER then contact us and explain so we can change your account setting to a voting member. 

Changing to an ACTIVE MEMBER
If you logged into your account and are not able to have access to parts of our website, you have become an INACTIVE MEMBER. Read this post on how to change back to an ACTIVE MEMBER with access to the rest of our website.
