If you are registered at this website as a Contributor, you will not need to add your name, email and spell out the "captcha" (the coded sequence of letters and numbers) each time you add text or an image. And, your contributions will be tagged with your username. Later, OGM will have social networking resources for Contributors, too.

If you have yet to create a Contributor account, click Create New Account (on the right near the Login) and fill in the form. Then, login each time you contribute new content and save steps.

Once you make an error logging in, you can click the New Password link that appears by the login box on the upper right. A new password will be emailed. After you login using this temporary password, you can change it to something easy to remember.

Registered Green Mapmakers - Resetting your password on OGM will reset your password at, too. After you login using the temporary password that was emailed to the registered email address, you can change it to something easy to remember there as well.
