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
Q: Why am I sometimes asked for my password, sometimes not, to access the same page?
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.
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.
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.
Q: How do I report a problem with the web site? And what's an URL?
A: Contact the webmaster with the following
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?
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!
