The THCC web site has two main parts: the forums and the wiki.
The THCC forums
While the wiki is designed to offer pages of information, the forums allow discussions.
Most forums are private to THCC club members and you need to be a club member to see these or to post topics and replies.
A few forums are also open to known "friends", but none of the forums are visible to the general public.
Without a forum account, you may only see the wiki.
Start by requesting a forum account. You will be asked for some basic information about yourself and especially a valid e-mail address. The forum account profiles act as the club membership records, so club members need to provide contact details for themselves and for someone who should be contacted in case of an emergency.
The system will then send you an e-mail. Follow the instructions in the e-mail to have your account confirmed.
|As a forum User, your account name will be displayed in gray.|
So far, you may not see the forums. Shortly afterward, an overworked webmaster should see the new account and will try to identify who you are.
|If you are not a paid-up club member, your account may be set to "Friend of THCC".|
As a Friend, your account name will now be displayed in green and you can now see and post in the public forums.
|If you are a paid-up club member, your account will be set to "THCC Club Member".|
As a Member, your account name will be displayed in blue, you can see and post in the public forums, you can also see and post in the private forums and you are allowed to edit pages in the wiki.
|If you are also a THCC section rep, your account name will be displayed in orange.|
|If you are also a THCC committee member, your account name will be displayed in red.|
|If you do not renew your club membership, your account will be set to "Past THCC member".|
As a Past member, your account name will be displayed in green and you may see and post in the public forums, but not the private forums.
The THCC wiki
The wiki holds the pages that make up the information of the web site.
All wiki pages are visible to everyone, but THCC club members may also edit the pages. Using a wiki means that all page changes are recorded. You can see the page history - showing who made the change and what they changed. It is also possible to undo a page change, so you need never worry that you might damage a page.
You do not need to log in to see the wiki pages, but you need to log in to edit the pages.
The overworked webmaster is planning to improve things, but for now you have to log in to the wiki even if you have already logged into the forum.
The account used for the wiki is the same as the one used for the forums (and the password is the same).
