General: How do I change my password?

26.2 Website Administrators CANNOT tell you what your exisiting password is. Why? because we don’t know what it is!

Passwords are stored in an encrypted format in the database and the only way to regain access to the site after forgetting your password is to have it reset to a new one and then change it yourself to one you want to use.

 
It’s good practice to change your password every so often. The password you choose can make it easy or hard for malicious people to gain access to your website account.
 
 

Choosing your Password

Why not do a google seach on how to choose a password ?

To change your 26.2 website password, follow these links:

Will I be too slow?

A lot of people are concerned about joining a running club as they think everyone will be built like racing snakes capable of running for hours faster than the wind.  Don’t be!

We have all shapes, sizes and speeds at the Club and people’s effort is more relevant than their overall distance or speed.

“I wouldn’t want to come last in a race”… Well to be honest it’s unlikely that you will, but even if you do, you’ll be streets ahead of the person stuffing KFC into their faces on the sofa…

General: Website Layout – Narrow/Wide

These days everyone looks at the Web from different PCs, Macs and PDAs, some have big screens, some have small screens, some have widescreens, some use 800×600 resolution some use higher. It’s hard to get a site looking right for everyone. With this in mind, if the Website looks too narrow or too wide on your computer, try using the template changer to get a different layout.

General: Forum – What’s Karma?

First of all what is Karma? Karma is a credit that can be given (or taken) to an individual in our forum.

You get a credit or Karma when someone thinks you’ve made a helpful post that people like or you make a useful suggestion to someone’s question (or conversely, a negative comment may earn a reduction…)

There are two kind of Karma: .

Thumbs Up : You have done something good.
Thumbs Down: Someone doesn’t like your post or comments

Anyone who is a Member can give and receive Karma. It is like a peer regconition system! So the more helpful you are in the forum then the chances of you getting more good Karma are high. Get too snide or grumpy and your karma may go down!

To give Karma, Click on the Thumbs Up icon in the post, to take away Karma, Click on the Thumbs down.
