Setting up Access to the G_String Forum
  1. If you have a Google account and your G_String Users mailing list address is your account username..
    You can immediately click the link to the Forum provided near the end of your invitation-to-join message. (Your mailing list address is the address to which that message was sent.)
  2. If you do not have a Google account..
    You must create one before you can join the Forum. Note that if you use Google's "Gmail" service you already have a Google account.
     
    You can create a Google account at:  
    When setting up your Google account, you have two choices regarding the email address you provide as your "current" address. You can specify..
    1. the email address to which your invitation-to-join message has been sent, which is your address on MERIT's G_String Users mailing list;
      OR
    2. a different email address.  Please note...
      If you do this, you will have to request to join the Forum again and indicate this email address.
  3. If you already have a Google account but it is associated with an email address that is not your G_String Users mailing list address..
    You have two options:
    1. Request a Forum invitation and indicate the email address associated with that account;
      OR
    2. Create a new Google account using the email address to which your invitation-to-join message was sent.

When your Google account is in order, click the link to the Forum provided near the end of your invitation-to-join message.

You will use your Google account's logon credentials to sign in to the G_String Forum. After you have signed in, you should review and customize your Forum Profile.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any difficulty joining the G_String Forum.
