I forgot my password. How can I find out what it is?

Go to the login page. Type in your email address and click "Get Password."


I enter my email and password and it says "Invalid Credentials." What is the problem?

If we reply with the message "Invalid Credentials," we cannot match the email address with the password. Please try one more time, being sure that Caps Lock is not on. If you still are receiving the same message, click "Get Password" to have your password emailed to your email address.


I enter my email and password, but I still can't see the data. What can I do?

If you are logged in, you will see "Logged in as:" followed by your name in the upper right of your screen. If you do not see this, try loading the page again. To do this, go to the View menu and select "Refresh" or "Reload."
