Registration Help

Overview of the registration process:
  1. Fill in your username and e-mail address on the registration form.
    • We require an e-mail address so we can reach you in case of problems, and because this makes it a little bit harder for spammers to create accounts automatically.
    • Both the e-mail address and username must be unique in the system. If some one else has already used your username, the system will inform you, and you will need to choose another one.
  2. Click the “Register” button at the bottom of the form.
  3. The system will send you an e-mail message with the information you need to complete the registration process.
    • This e-mail message should arrive in a few minutes, but delivery times are unpredictable.
    • If the registration message doesn't arrive for an hour or more, enter your username or e-mail address here to have another automatic message sent.
    • If it still doesn’t work, write to balebos@verterbukh.org for help.
  4. Click on the link in the e-mail message (or cut-and-paste it into a web browser).
  5. Fill in the “Password” field with your desired password, and enter the same value in the “Repeat Password to Confirm” field.
  6. Click the “Update” button.
  7. At this point you are logged in, and can look words up in the dictionary. In the future, you will be able to use the user name and password you have just set up to log in.
  8. Help on using the dictionary is available in the User’s Guide. A link to this guide appears on the dictionary pages.
