Login and Password Problems
SiliconIndia prides itself on having a safe online environment. In order to assist us with keeping the site safe, please make sure to use your current email address for your SiliconIndia login and to use a secure password (i.e. a password only you know).
I forgot my password.
It's okay to forget things. You can reset your password by clicking here.

How do I change my password?
If your old password isn't cutting it anymore you can change it from the "Settings" tab on the account page.
My account is "temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance." What's going on?
"Site Maintenance" usually means that we're making an improvement to the database that your account is stored on. While we're doing this, you will not be able to access your account. In most instances, this maintenance will last only a few hours. A few other things to note:
After the maintenance is over, you will still be able to login with the same password
Your profile and account will not be affected by the maintenance
There is no need to notify SiliconIndia of the site maintenance. We're the ones doing the work, so if you see this notice, it means that we're already aware of the issue.
We don't do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time, so it is possible that some of your friends will be able to access the site while your account is unavailable.

The password reset does not seem to be working.
Please follow these directions:
Send an email to   from the email address you are registered under. For your security, we will not be able to change your password unless you send an email from this account address.
Please write your login email address in the subject line of your message along with the word "password."
