The Voice123 Forum has been a great place for voice actors to share experiences and help out fellow talents for many years. Since they have been around so long, there were also security flaws that made it easy for today’s spammers and hackers to target. In order to provide a safer and better experience for everyone, here’s what you need to know to participate on the new forums (and we hope you will!).
How to log in to the new Voice123 forums:
First, bookmark the link: http://voice123.com/forum/. You can also find the link by logging into your Voice123 account and clicking the link found on the right sidebar of your “home”.
Then, connect your Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google, or Yahoo! account. Why do we require you to connect one of these other services? The main reason is that it helps eliminate spammers and hackers. It adds an extra layer of verification, helping to ensure no one is misrepresenting themselves. We understand this is not a 100% guarantee that no one will be able to “fake” an account, but it will definitely help.
Also, it’s convenient for you! How many usernames and passwords do you have to remember? If you’re like me, it’s at least ten thousand. Being able to log in with another account means one less username and password you have to remember and you can login with just one click. We will never post to any of your social media accounts without asking your permission and we do not collect, sell, or use your information in any way other than to identify you on the forum.
Who can participate?
Anyone! Going forward, we want the Voice123 forums to be an open, informative, and helpful tool for anyone interested in the voice over industry, veteran or someone just thinking about starting a career in voice acting. This means that even people without a Voice123 membership can still ask questions and get advice before signing up. This is another reason for the social media sign in (to verify non-member identities), but it also means more transparency and better conversation on the forums.
As always, we do appreciate your feedback. Thanks for making Voice123 the best voice over casting website on the planet!
