I have a akvopedia account but can not upload pictures as I do not have permission, nor can I use my akvopedia login to login at help.akvo.org

    Hi Cai,

    My fault - we had some spam problems, so we turned off the ability for users to create pages. As it happens - to upload photo's you need to create a page. That's fixed now (not the spam, but the permissions), so you should be able to upload photos.

    On the help.akvo.org: yes - tender has a different login. You would be surprised how hard it is to have the same login among different systems - this is called the 'single sign on' problem in the ICT world.

    hope this helps, and a good weekend,

    Thanks a lot for the speedy help. What limited knowledge I have of ICT doesn't make me surprised at all. No worries, I will just used the same log in details to set up a second account.
