Basic Instructions for:

Your password

  • Your password should be a minimum of 10 characters in length.
  • The best passwords will be really long random strings that you can easily memorize, such as parrots-wedding-green-homunculus. Passwords that combine characters, uppercase, and numbers, such as v0TinGis4maZing, will also be stronger than simple passwords.
  • Do not use pets or children's names and birthdays in your passwords.
  • When you enter your password into the two fields, they will show as not matching until you complete typing the full password (and they match)

Your personal information

  • Your address, phone number, and email address will not display to the public. This is just in case MyLO is ever able to spend resources to create an effective user directory, and it also enables your League's managers to get in touch with you as needed.
  • Your photo, bio, and roles set for Leagues will display to the public, though they are not being used in any functionality at this time. This is intended for future functionality, such as Member Stories and displaying Committee Boards or League staff.
