Wild Ones   Wild FAQ  

  1. Q: Why does the Members site require a password?
    A: Membership in Wild Ones has its privileges. One of these is access to the Members site, subject to our Terms of Use.

  2. Q: Why am I sometimes asked for my password, sometimes not, to access the same page?
    A: Most of our password protection use
    cookies with a generous expiration period. If you revisit the page within that time period, you should not have to re-supply your password, unless you have closed your browser or rebooted your computer. In cases where a whole directory of documents need to be protected, we use a basic authentication process that has a different login screen and expiration period, but your User Name and Password are the same.

  3. Q: My email address has changed, what should I do?
    A: We use your email address to identify you when you login, but this is not directly tied to our membership database, so technically you can continue to use your old email address to login. However, you should notify us of the change so that we can update the database accordingly. To do this, simply click on
    Update Personal Membership Info menu in the Members page, and follow the directions.

  4. Q: I got an Internal Server Error; what does that mean?
    A: Many web pages on the
    Members site are driven by programs that may experience periodic, temporary glitches that produce this error while we're updating portions of the site. Usually this problem is resolved if you simply wait a few minutes and reload or refresh your browser. Occassionally, this message is caused by human programming errors, and in most cases the human who caused it can catch it fairly quickly and resolve it as quickly as possible. We also have a daily monitor to make basic sanity checks, so we are usually alerted to any unfixed programming errors within 24 hours. If you find that this problem persists, please follow the procedure below to report the problem. You should not have to reboot your computer.

  5. Q: How do I report a problem with the web site? And what's an URL?
    A: Contact the
    webmaster with the following information:
    • The URL of the page that gave the error. The URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is simply the web address (http://www.for-wild.org/...) of the web page; on most browsers it's shown in a small text window near the top of the browser. Please note that an URL is case sensitive, e.g., wildthing.html is not the same as WildThing.html.
    • Any actions you may have done to invoke that page; the more details you provide, the easier it is for us to narrow down the problem.
      An example of a problem report with insufficient detail for us to take effective action:
        I'm having problems with the survey, what's wrong?
      An example of a detailed problem report that is much more helpful:
        I was filling out the survey at http://www.for-wild.org/survey.html
        At the first screen, I filled in my name as Jean O'Day, and clicked "Continue",
        then I got the message "File not found", what's wrong?

  6. Q: I'd like to volunteer to assist with the maintenance of the Wild Ones website. Whom can I contact about this?
    A: Please ontact
    ExecDirector@for-wild.org. We thank you in advance!
