  4. Fill in the required information on the screen that follows, including a username, your email address, your first and last name, a password, city, state and postal code. Fill in optional information as you like, such as your availability and your phone number.  The best username is your first and last names (e.g. John Smith) since it will make you easier to find in the Timebank.
