This is temporary the fix to Bugs #125185 and #125291, asking for a new chapters database with admin interface and a new chapters registration frontend, respectively.

So that we know about your existence, we'd love it if you'd register your chapter. It's not too hard a process, but it is a little clunky (for now). So pay attention to this guide!

Step 0: Don't break anything

This is a stopgap measure, and we'll make this nicer for the future. For the time being, if you're logged in, you'll be able to edit everything, not just your own stuff. Please don't do that. In particular, please don't do anything destructive to the system or any data that others have added. Please keep the temporary password in confidence, and please don't go into the "User" tab and change the password. (Anything that breaks can be fixed, but it's easier if it's not broken to begin with, so our Web Team's time can be spent making this better rather than putting out fires.) kthxhamster

Step 1: Log in

Go to http://freeculture.org:8081/catwalk/ and log in:

Username: registration Password: barbie queue

Step 2: Create yourself

Click on "Contact" on the left, and then click on "Add contact". Fill out the form and tell us who you are.

modified_at and created_at should be filled in automagically.

After you successfully submit the form, note the ID # assigned to you by the system (click on the "Browse" tab and look in the first column, on the left). You'll need this for step 4.

Step 3: Create your school

Click on "School" on the left, and then click on "Add school". You must fill in these fields:

  • city: Where the school is located
  • name: Name of the school (not of your chapter or yourself!)
  • zip: ZIP or post code where your school is located
  • state: State or province where your school is located
  • address: Street or mailing address of your school
  • uri: Web site of your school

Do not worry about "address2" (unless your school has a two-line address, in which case use that) or longitude or latitude or plus4 unless you know that what you put there is correct.

modified_at and created_at should be filled in automagically.

After you successfully submit the form, note the ID # assigned to your school by the system (click on the "Browse" tab and look in the first column, on the left). You'll need this for step 4.

Step 4: Create your chapter!

This is the really important part. Sorry about the fields being in a seemingly random order. Here's what they mean:

  • wiki: A link to your chapter's wiki, if you have one
  • budget: Does your chapter have a budget? True/False
  • ship_pk: Does your chapter want Public Knowledge to send you goodies (gratis)?
  • school: The ID number (blah, I know) of the school that you created in step 3
  • is_approved: Leave this to False for now!
  • ship_eff: Does your chapter want goodies from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (gratis)?
  • blog: The full Web address of your chapter's blog, if you have one
  • contact: The ID number (blah, I know) of the contact you created in step 2
  • budgetsize: If you have a budget, how big is it? (annually, in U.S. dollars)
  • subdomain: If you want a whatever.freeculture.org subdomain, put the whatever part here.
  • is_active: Set this to true if your chapter is active!
  • paid_fc_shirts: Ignore this for now. (FIXME: !?!)
  • members: How many members have you?
  • coremembers: How many decision-making members do you have? Some clubs call this the "board of officers" or "executive board" or similar.
  • ship_cc: Do you want Creative Commons to send you goodies (gratis)?
  • mailinglist: Enter the full web address for a link to information about your email list, if you have one
  • name: What's the name of your club?
  • uri: The full web address of your chapter's Web site, if you have one
  • ship_fc_shirts: Do you want us to send you FreeCulture.org shirts (gratis)?

modified_at, created_at, and registered should be filled in automagically.

Step 5: Profit

Live happily ever after!
