The Front Page
A screenshot of the new front page for GMS Labs is shown below. At the top of the page, there are two important links: The "Articles" link will bring you to the index of the Articles section. This section is where you are currently reading this post.
The Login Window and Changing Passwords
The link to the right in the image above is the Login link, which takes you to the Dashboard page. If you are already logged in, it will take you to your Dashboard. If not, it will bring up a Login window as shown in the next image.
You will have received your username and password. In most cases, your username will be the same as it was in the previous (legacy) version of the website. If you have forgotten your password, you can click on the link that says "Forgot your Password", which will prompt you to enter your email.
If your email matches the one in our system, you will get an email from [email protected] with a link to reset your password. The text in the email will tell you your username. An example is given below:
You're receiving this email because you requested a password reset for your user account at GMS.
Please go to the following page and choose a new password:
Your username, in case you've forgotten: <<your username here>>
Thanks for using our site!

Once you click on the link, you will get a screen as follows:
Please enter a new password that conforms to the four rules listed:
Your password can't be too similar to your other personal information.
Your password must contain at least 8 characters.
Your password can't be a commonly used password.
Your password can't be entirely numeric.
Once you've changed your password, you should be able to log in with your username.
At this time, this is the only way to change a password for any user.
Any time you are logged in you can click on your name on the top right of the web page. It will open a small window with a link to sign out. A screenshot of the top right of your web page is shown below:
