What is the Rainbow Resort Passport?
What is the Rainbow Resort Passport (RRPP), one may ask? It sure doesn't look like any software or online program you've used before.
And there is a good reason for that: it isn't.
The Passport system is propriety to KRR. It was made solely for it, and probably wouldn't be too good a fit for anywhere else. The simple idea for it is for one account -- one username and password -- to control all functions that may pop up at the site.
With a Rainbow Resort Passport, you can rate, comment, and create for almost everything on KRR.
Do I need a Rainbow Resort Passport to use the site?
You can still visit and do all of your normal activities on KRR without a Passport account. You can even comment and submit a good deal of fan content without one, too. For the most part, Passports are needed to rate site content, protect your screen name from imitators, authenticate staff members, and keep you from having to answer those bothersome anti-spambot questions.
How do I get a Rainbow Resort Passport?
You can sign up for a Passport if you do not yet have one. If you do have one, simply log in. The Passport system is a newer feature in KRR's history; it first went public on August 20th, 2009, and is connected to nothing before it.
Can I use my Passport to log into the Gallery, Oekaki, Forums, or Chat?
No, no, no, and certainly not. The Passport can only be used to log into features integrated into it, which includes most of KRR's features, but not all of them.
It is expected one that for the Gallery to fold into the Passport system. I highly doubt that the Forums or Oekaki ever will.
I signed up for the Gallery/Oekaki/Forums/Chat. Do I need a Passport, too?
If you want to use any of the features on the main site, yes you do. The older features are not connected to the Rainbow Resort Passport. You can use the same screen name, if you'd like, but you'll still have to sign up for an account; you won't get one automatically just because you are also a member elsewhere.
