All members of ARC will be issued with accounts on the wiki server. These are, sadly, distinct from those on the old wiki server (habu), but at least are used for the ARC AppleShares and will be used for any future developments which can talk to a standard LDAP server.
Rather than use staff or student numbers, or the old-style 'initials' logins, I've decided to base usernames on QUB email addresses, which are at least going to be unique. Here are a few samples:
So, if you're staff then you just remove the periods from the email prefix; if you're a student then drop the serial number. When we get a clash I'll make something up at the time!
Default passwords will be communicated privately, and you can change you password on this form when connected to the ARC LAN.
Passwords must follow these (utterly evil) criteria:
So something like ThisNew!!%%SystemBl0ws would be fine. Just not that exact one.
