h4. Lost your password or user name?

*Do not worry*
* Your user name will almost certainly be your name in the format *initial _space_ family-name* *initial* *{_}space{_}* *family-name* in *lower case*. Thus it is simple to guess that a person named Joe Bloggs will have a user name of 'j bloggs'. 'j bloggs'.
* It is easy to get a new password:
** At top right it says 'Anonymous'. This is the name of anyone not logged in.
** Click on 'Anonymous', a menu item 'Log in' appears - click on it.
*** Click on *Forgot your password?*
** If 'Forgot your password?' just enter your username (remember it will probably have a space in it) OR your email address and a NEW password will be sent to you by email which you can use to login.
** Passwords and user names are CASE SENSITIVE\!

h4. Explore the wiki.

* The wiki is laid out in [Spaces] and sub-spaces. Generally a FAI commission will have one top level space and a number of sub-spaces. Wiki users may also have set up their own [personal space|personal spaces].
* The root of all global spaces is the {link-to:dashboard}Dashboard{link-to} and there is a link to this in the _breadcrumbs_ 'trail' at the top of every wiki page.
* You can access users' personal spaces from the main menu: view \--> other pages \--> people directory.
* Depending on the [groups|User groups] you are a member of you will have more [permissions] in some spaces than others. By default everyone is a member of the *confluence-users* group and by default members of this group have permission to view and make comments on every page. You have total control over your personal space.
* The entire list of spaces in the wiki is:
