General account issues
Please answer LibraryThing related questions here (and on the other Help and FAQ pages). To ASK questions, however, please use Talk.
 How do I create an account?
Just click "join now" on the homepage, then enter a user name and password.
 How do I change my username or password?
Change is easy. If you want to change your password or username, go to Change or delete, under "Edit profile and settings."
Also at Change or delete, you can delete your LibraryThing account. This deletes books you've entered and your profile page. It does not delete Talk posts, contributions to Common Knowledge, etc.
 What if I lost my password or forgot my user name?
Go to lostsomething. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org with two rare-ish Titles from your catalog. Needles that most other haystacks don't have, in other words.
 I lost all my books! Where did you put them?
Check your user name at the top right of the screen. What probably happened was you made a typo and created a second, slightly different account. LibraryThing's much-praised bare-bones sign in form has that drawback. For now, we're keeping it simple. Email email@example.com if you need help finding your account.
 I created a new account by mistake, how do I delete it?
