***Update: Amanda French at THATCamp.org reports that the bugs in the registration plugin have been fixed as of 2/22, so new registrants should get the appropriate messages and correct passwords. If you are still having problems, please let us know.***
We count ourselves very lucky that the good folks at the Center for History and New Media provide such incredible support for THATCamp, including a very easy-to-use WordPress site template and plugins for managing registration, etc, all completely for free.
That said, the registration plugin is still in development, and there seem to be some quirks. When your registration is accepted, you should get an email that contains your username and password for the site, as well as this message:
Your registration for THATCamp OSU has been accepted! Please visit the site to see who else is coming or to propose a session: osu2012.thatcamp.org. You can also contact the organizers, Melanie Schlosser (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Louie Ulman (email@example.com). We look forward to seeing you there!
Due to some bugs in the software, however, the email just contains the username and password, and the password doesn’t work on the site. They’re working on it. In the meantime, if this happens to you, don’t worry. You ARE registered, and you can use the ‘forgot password’ link to change your password.
