Mac High Bulletin Board for non Google Users

Hey Folks, Having just gone through this process with someone else, I figured there may be others who've tried to access the Bulletin Board and after trying to figure out all the Google protocols, thrown up their hands in frustration never to come back again.

So.

If you do NOT have a gmail account, do not WANT to have a gmail account and yet still be part of the Mac High Bulletin Board? This post is for you!

  1. When you go to the main bulletin board page (http://www.machigh.org/p/bulletin-board.html), click on "Apply for Membership" link.
  2. You will be taken to a Google sign in form (username/email). Click on the red "Sign Up" button  in the upper right hand corner.
  3. Fill in your name and instead of a gmail.com account you will see a link underneath about signing in using your own email account. Click this.
  4. Fill in the remainder of the form, including password, after which Google will say that in order to activate your account they will send an email to your account.
  5. Click on the link within that email.
  6. You now have a Google account which you can use to join all Google Groups (and get a gmail account etc.) 
  7. Use that email account/password combination to log into the Mac High Alumni Bulletin Board.
If you have any problems, questions, concerns, do not hesitate to contact me: machigh.mhsaa@gmail.com
