A username is a unique sequence of characters used on computer systems in general and at PS1 as well, of course, to identify a member and to allow them access to computer systems, some computer networks, online accounts and some machines.
Some systems at PS1 use your registered email address as the username to login, such as the Wild Apricot driven member management system.
Most systems, like the computers around the space, the wiki and some others, use a one-word username you selected at some point.
During the transition from ps1auth to Wild Apricot, you will have two usernames, (which MIGHT be the exact same but are not required to be the same) one which you selected when you created your Wild Apricot member profile and one that is in our current Active Directory servers, driven by ps1auth
Your PS1 username might have been established (2018 and earlier) using the web 'members' site at http://members.pumpingstationone.org As of 2018, access to computers around the space is still driven by ps1auth tied into an Active Directory server, that is not part of the Wild Apricot member management system. You can reset your password for [old] usernames at members.pumpingstationone.org
To get access to computers (and computer-connected stuff like the lasers, ShopBot, CNC plasma cutter, etc) you will need a username and to get it you'll need (as of November 2018 anyway) go to members.pumpingstationone.org and click the ACTIVATE link to get that taken care of. The username created and tracked by Wild Apricot is different, unrelated, not connected to this task.
Wild Apricot transition
After 2018, a username might have been established as a part of new account creation or account migration to PS1's Wild Apricot-managed member management system at the newer 'membership' page http://membership.pumpingstationone.org
The username that is managed through Wild Apricot (2018 and later) is not being used for any member-facing applications right now and instructions have not yet been published for password recovery. Email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Laser logins, ShopBot logins, CNC Plasma Cutter logins
You will need a ps1auth username. (see above)
Computers connected to CNC machines use the ps1auth logins, but are further restricted by authorization level; you must also be specifically authorized for those machines in order to login at the computers attached to them. This function is driven by the Active Directory server at PS1, and a failure in our local network or DNS can affect your ability to login. Otherwise, until further notice, use the procedures for activating or changing the password for your ps1auth username for these computers. Please lock the screen or log off when you are not sitting at these workstations.
Other PCs around the PS1 space
Several PCs around the space in the CNC area, Arts and Crafts area, Electronics area, and other areas ... are accessed by using your ps1auth username and password, without further restrictions. Please lock the screen or log off when you are not sitting at these workstations.
The Canvas Learning Management System used by PS1 might or might not be driven by the new Wild Apricot usernames, but has been in the first development stages until recently. See the wiki entry for Canvas for details about that.
You don't need or use a username to access the wifi at PS1, and passwords for wifi are provided inside the space, usually stenciled on the ceilings.
