Welcome to the GeoCities Personal Home Page Program! Thank you for choosing GeoCities. To foster the growth of the GeoCities community and keep it fresh and evolving, PLEASE keep in mind that you'll need to start building your home page within the next two weeks. To that end, this e-mail is designed to give you all the info you'll need to get started at GeoCities.
The URL for your Personal Home Page is:http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Fuji/7911/
YOUR MEMBERNAME IS: widya
YOUR CURRENT PASSWORD IS: ************
YOUR GEOCITIES E-MAIL ADDRESS IS: firstname.lastname@example.org
(NOTE: We will NEVER ask you for your password under any circumstances.
To maintain your privacy, please do not give it out to anyone).
To change your password (it's a good idea) or any other personal information, use our Profile Editor athttp://www.geocities.com/members/tools/profile_editor.html
If you're pretty confident in your computer/Internet skills, the first thing you'll want to do is login to the GeoCities File Manager and edit your index page with one of our three Page Editors. Presently your page says something like "Hi, my name is Mary and I haven't moved in yet." You'll want to edit the index.html file and overwrite it with your own content. Technically, this moves you in and your page won't be deleted.http://www.geocities.com/members/tools/file_manager.html
If you're new to the Internet, you may want to use our Help Tutorials to learn how to build pages with the GeoCities HTML Editorshttp://www.geocities.com/main/help/tutorials/
The GeoCities resource page is a list of GeoCities help guides written entirely by members. It's a perfect example of how our homesteaders help each other out, and it will surely answer many of your questions. GeoCities always appreciates the opportunity to showcase great member home pages!http://www.geocities.com/main/help/guides/resource.html
A great resource for everything available to you as a GeoCities member is located athttp://www.geocities.com/members/

In a nutshell: no nudity or pornography, no outside sponsorship banners or signposts, and we only allow commercial pages in the GeoShops. For more info on GeoShops, please go to:http://www.geocities.com/join/geoshops/

To welcome you to your new home at GeoCities, our sponsors would like to present you with a few gifts.

We really only require two things of our homesteaders:
1.) We ask that you place a customizable GeoGuide on top of your pages or support the GeoPops Program. These forms of advertising make your free pages possible. If you prefer the pop-ups, do nothing and they will appear randomly. Or, if you would rather avoid banner advertising altogether, you might want to take advantage of our premium service, the GeoPlus Program, for only $4.95 per month.
Find out all about the GeoGuide athttp://www.geocities.com/members/programs/geoguide
And get more info about GeoPlus athttp://www.geocities.com/join/geoplus
2.) We also ask that you do not interfere with the transparent Watermark on the corner of your GeoCities pages. The Watermark is designed to increase your chances of being found by visitors. For example, if you're on a great gardening page, clicking on the GeoCities Watermark will take you to other great gardening pages. We think the Watermark greatly improves our service to you, since it decreases the amount of work it takes you to meet our content guidelines, and it will bring more traffic to your site!
Again, welcome to the neighborhood!
