IMPORTANT: On October 15th, 2021, the way you login to TGO will change!

On Friday, October 15th, 2021, the way that you login to TGO will change.  We will no longer allow you to login using your screen name / user name / display name.   You will be required to use your email address to login.  You will use your same password as you did previously.


Why Are We Doing This?

We are doing this to provide an extra layer of security for you.  Unless you have goofed and made your email address publicly known on TGO, the only people who should be privy to that are yourself and our administrative team.  No one else should know the correlation between your screen name and your email address.

A common way of attacking a user account is to to try a "brute force attack" where they use your login name and try to guess the password.  By detaching your screen name from the login process, we can help hide your login credentials from bad actors and make it a little harder on them.



No vaccinations are required for this to work.  😉  But please do be sure that you know what email address you signed up using!  You can find that info by checking your own Account Settings screen at this link.  Please do that in advance of October 15th.

This change is now in effect.  You must use your email address on record with us to login.  You can no longer use your screen-name for login.


If you encounter any difficulty, use the Contact Us form linked at the very bottom of each page to request help.

I know that some of you have been having trouble logging in because you couldn't remember what your email address was.   I am allowing logins using your screen name, once more, for a limited time so that you can CHECK YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS before we try this again.

You can find that info by checking your own Account Settings screen at this link


We will go back to requiring you to use your email address at the end of November 2021.  That's a little more than a month from now.  PLEASE use the links above to make sure that you have your email address noted ahead of time.

Thanks!   🙂
