And one Login to Rule them All
You get up, you login to the forums to check for messages. You then open another window and login to classify galaxies. Back and forth, forums and classifications, forever logging in twice.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had all your galaxies and all our forum friends in one place?
We’re working to make that happen!
In the coming months the Galaxy Zoo classifications site (GalaxyZoo.org) and the Galaxy Zoo Forums (GalaxyZooForum.org) are going to adopt a shared login (for you tech heads, we’ll be using CAS). To make this happen smoothly we need your help.
If you do not have an account on the forums, you can stop reading now. If you are a forum user, please keep going.
About 2000 of you (and this includes me, so don’t feel guilty) have created a login on GalaxyZoo.org using one email address and on the GalaxyZooForum.org using a different email address. Can you do us a favor? Can you please make sure your accounts on both sites use the same email address? (And in case you forget, we will be emailing mismatched email holders later this week)
Here is how:
- Login to GalaxyZooForum.org and click on “Profile” and note what email address you have entered.
- Now login to GalaxyZoo.org and click on “Classify Galaxies” and then resist the temptation to classify the galaxy (okay fine, maybe pause to do 2 or 3 or 4 dozen), and then click on “Profile.” Check if your email on GalaxyZoo.org matches. If it doesn’t, please change your email on GalaxyZoo.org to match our email on GalaxyZooForum.org.
This is a Bad Example.
This is a Good Example.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
