#198 Welcome to Fedora @cooltshirtguy!

Hello @cooltshirtguy ! Welcome to Fedora!

Before we begin, please subscribe to the Fedora join mailing list at
fedora-join@lists.fedoraproject.org
.
We use this list for general discussion, and it is also where the community
shares tasks that need help.

Then, could you please introduce yourself (preferably on the list) so that the
community can get to know you? (interests, skills, anything you wish to say
about yourself really)

In the meantime, these links would be a good read. They tell you what the
Free/Open Source community is about, and then they'll introduce you to Fedora:
what Fedora is all about, and what we do, and of course, how we do it:

If you have any questions at all, please ask! We'll use this ticket to keep in
touch! :)


When is signed up for the fedora-join list it used my login. I'm suppose to use that or my normal email?

For the moment, I'd use your normal e-mail for mailing lists.

The <username>@fedoraproject.org address is only an alias and not a full mailbox, so any e-mails sent to this address will simply be redirected to whatever e-mail address you provide in the Fedora Account System (FAS). The alias is also only enabled when you've joined one Fedora group (which is a sort of simple spam check), so unless you're part of a group, it won't quite work for you yet.

I guess at this point i try to find a SIG i'm interested in?

Never mind. it's a me problem....

When I try to log into https://ask.fedoraproject.org/ with my fas account, i get:
400 - Bad Request
User not authenticated at continue

I get the same thing when I try to log into https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Project_Wiki

Can you try a private window in whatever browser you are using (so without cookies, cache, extensions, which may be causing this?)

Also, in the Fedora login page, do not that your username is not your e-mail address. It needs to be just your Fedora username, so "cooltshirtguy". (We've had reports of some folks trying their e-mail address there).

I setup 2 factor authentication. I can log into https://accounts.fedoraproject.org/ but I dont see the one time password for ask.fedoraproject.org.
