Q. How do I create a new Commons log-in?
If you would like to create a Commons ID just for this site, click the link at the bottom of the “Select your log-in method" page. You will then be directed to a form where you choose a username and password. Be aware that your username will be visible on the Commons network on your profile and will be used by other members to add you to groups and sites and to mention you in posts and status updates. Your password must be at least ten characters long and include at least one number, one lowercase letter, and one uppercase letter. When you have chosen a username and password, click the Submit button at the bottom of the form, which will log you in to the site.
