How to create your account and claim your old posts

How do I create my account and claim my old posts?
If you ever used the ODK Forum, it’s likely an account has already been created for you on this forum! To claim your account and get access to your old emails/posts, to the following.

  • Go to and click on Log In in the upper right hand of your screen.
  • Click on I forgot my password and enter your email address. Remember, it must be the same address you used to sign up for the ODK Forum.
  • You will receive an email with a link to reset your password. Click that link and enter your new password.

If you never posted on the ODK Forum, go to and click on Sign Up in the upper right hand of your screen to create your account.

I’m logged into my account. Now what?
Great! You’ve gotten through the hardest part. Now the fun begins:

  • If you are not happy with the default username, change it now in Preferences. You will not be able to change it later!
  • Take a moment to introduce yourself here.
  • Read the category descriptions to see the various places you can post.
  • If you have questions or comments about this site, post it in meta.
