In an effort to ease access to splitboard.com, while ensuring there is little to no spam, we have created an option for users to access the site with their Facebook, Google, and Twitter logins. The ability to login with these logins, will give new users the ability to create an account and immediately begin utilizing the website. For users who currently have a splitboard.com account and one of the social media accounts, if the email address on file for both accounts are the same, the two accounts would be linked upon login. Users who have a splitboard.com account currently can link their social media accounts on their splitboard.com profile page.
In addition to giving users the ability to instantly gain the ability to post items for sale in the Splitboard Swap, post trip reports and/or ask questions, this should also reduce the number of fictitious accounts which request creation each day and maintain a low level of spam on the site.
To access the social login for account creation or account login, follow the steps below:
At the homepage, move your cursor or tap the white silhouette in the upper right hand corner. It will say Login/Join as seen below.
After clicking the Login/Join icon, the login screen seen below will pop up. If you have a pre-existing splitboard.com account you can enter your username and password. To utilize your Facebook login, click or press the blue Facebook logo as seen below.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook on your computer or mobile device, Facebook will automatically log you in.
If you are not already logged into Facebook, the blue Facebook logo will say Login with Facebook and populate a Facebook login screen.
The Facebook login screen which is seen below, will ask you to enter your Facebook account email or phone number and password. Once logged in, users are redirected back to the home page and have the ability to leave comment below articles, and make posts within the forums of splitboard.com.
Google login would be useful – not everyone’s on FB.
Mariner, just added a Gmail login option. I will work on adding a couple of the common login options for people.
Thanks, Colin – the Google login option worked for me.
Glad to hear it worked well for you.
I’ve had no luck trying to create an account for the forums, and I don’t do Facebook. Is there any other option for creating a username?
