From TecHKnow Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

From August 2013 we now allow you to link your social media profile (eg., Facebook, Twitter Google+) to your user profile. This means that if you are a member of any one of these social media websites then you can now sign into the TecHKnow website by this method. Please check our Privacy Policy.

This is probably the quickest and easiest way to register with the TecHKnow website. It also means that you only have one set of username/passwords to remember!

If you do not have a Social Media account

To register with TecHKnow simply click on the Register link beside the login box. You will be asked to complete the registration form. Some of the information that we require from you is mandatory in order for us to manage the TecHKnow website effectively. Please check our Privacy Policy.

What happens now?

Once you submit your registration, one of our moderators will approve it. This is a human process so please allow at least 24 hours for this to happen. If we reject your registration then we may at our discretion supply you with a reason. Please note for reasons of maintaining website security we will automatically reject any registration where

  • You have failed to complete the registration correctly or supplied information which gives us sufficient grounds to believe that the registration itself is not authentic
  • In our opinion could originate from a known or suspected spam email address
  • Originates from a non uk email address eg., somebody@hotmail.com or somebody@gmail.com

Once we approve your registration you will receive a confirmation email to the email address that you chose when you signed up. Please locate this email and follow the instructions contained inside. You will be required, as a security measure, to verify that the registration originated from yourself by clicking on the special link provided.

*If you are unable to use your school email address then please use a valid UK based email address.
