The KOTESOL Site is up and it is time to reclaim your KOTESOL web accounts.
The ultra short Version:
1. Go to the KOTESOL home page and click on "Sign in"
2. Click on the "Request New Password" Tab and go through the process using your account e-mail address.
3. Change your password and add/change the other information on the profile edit page as necessary.
4. Click "Save" at the bottom of the page.
5. You may now renew your membership and/or purchase a conference attendance.
6. Refer back to this page or contact me directly if you have any trouble.
The Longer Explanation (More Detailed instructions Are Below)
We have moved every one we could over from the old KOTESOL web site to the new one. There were some changes made to accomplish this move and there are some things you need to know before you complete the process.
1.You will need to know your current postal mailing address in Korean or English to complete the reclamation process. If you don't know it, stop here and get it. We cannot mail your membership benefits to you if we do not know where to send them.
2. Your login was changed to FirstName_LastName (note the underscore). e.g. IsolatedPenguin becomes John_Phillips. It is actually easier to log in using your e-mail address.
3. You must reclaim your account using your original e-mail address that you signed up to KOTESOL with. If you no longer have access to that e-mail address, please contact us through the "Contact Us" form and we will be able to change it for you.
4. We do not know what your password was or is because they are strongly encrypted by the system and not even the site administrators have access to them.
5. Please use the detailed instructions below with the "Request New Password" process to reactivate your new Kotesol Account.
6. If you do not see an expiry date listed on your profile your summary page, your membership has expired. If this is an error please contact us for clarification and corrections.
Please Note: Many KOTESOL memberships expire on September 30, 2012. (Before the conference)
Recover your account:
Before you begin, you will need your correct mailing address. This is required so that the KOTESOL publications department can mail your membership benefits -- TEC Magazine etc. -- to you.
1. Click the "Sign in" link at the top right of the Koreatesol.org homepage.
2. Select the "Request new password" tab (below the "My account" heading). The next page asks only for an e-mail address.
3. Enter your e-mail address, NOT your old username. You must use your original e-mail address you signed up to KOTESOL with. If this is not possible, please contact me.
4. Click "e-mail new password". An e-mail will be sent to your e-mail address. You will receive a green confirmation box: "Further instructions have been sent to your e-mail address."
5. Follow the directions in the new e-mail. Click the link in the e-mail and follow the directions on the resulting web page.
-- If you don't see an email shortly, check your spam folder. If it doesn't arrive, use the online contact form at www.koreatesol.org/contact to let the administrator know you didn't receive your reset email.
6. On the webpage that the e-mail link takes you to, click the "Log in" button.
7. On your User page, change your password and fill in ALL the required personal information fields. They are marked by red asterisks (*).
8. Click "Save" -- your KOTESOL account has been re-established.
Please note: This is a one-time login. If the process fails due to a missed required field or some other error, then you must:
-- Logout. Click the logout link, top-right of the page
-- Close your browser. (Just to be on the safe side.)
-- Restart your browser.
-- Start the "request new password" process again. (Go to step #1.)
