OBFS, Reloaded
Thursday, January 27, 2011 10:28 AM

Welcome to the new OBFS website!

You'll notice a lot of changes--please be patient as we bring new features online. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

Why doesn't my old login work?

We completely changed the database organization so that records are kept by Station name, rather than individual emails. Additionally, because some of our problems were from a hack of our old website in 2010, for security reasons all login information was changed.  If you can't remember your login, just enter your email as a "new user" on the OBFS Station Membership Application/Renewal page.  The website will search the system for your email, and give you the option of having login information sent to you.  

Why did the web address of my station change to bit.ly/something?

There is a maximum 80 character limit for both the station name and web addresses. This is something we're hoping to adjust in the future.  For web addresses, a simple solution is to use an alias web shortener--like bit.ly.  It does still get people to your station's website, it just looks a bit different.

Can I pay dues online now?

 YES! If you enter your email as a "new user" on the Join OBFS page.    The website will search the system for your email and give you the option of having your login information sent to you.  

Where did ______ go?

Some content was lost when our site was hacked last year. We were not able to recover, for example, course listings and migrate them into the new website.

I'm still in the process of hunting everything down in our archives and uploading it into the new site. Also, some of our content is only visible when you are logged in (OBFS annual reports, for example).  

What about the Member Listserv?

It's back!  You can find all the login information here: https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/obfs-maillist


Thanks everyone for your patience!

FIRST is a National Dissemination Project funded by The National Science Foundation to provide opportunities for faculty and future faculty throughout the country to improve their teaching of science that enables undergraduate students to learn science.
