I am logged in. Why can’t I see the full species accounts?

  • If you are “logged in” but you still can’t see full species accounts, this is because you are logged in under a different username. Many people have inadvertently created multiple usernames but your subscription can only be tied to one. Try logging out and log back in with a different username.

I am supposed to have special access via AOS, Golden-winged society, or another group, but I can’t get in.

Please see the special member access page.
