Who can join Impact OASIS?
ImpactOASIS.com has launched a new social community that offers a
powerful platform for families and friends touched by autism and
interested in planning for the future to connect and communicate.
ImpactOASIS.com is an interactive, content rich blog and video
centric online community and personal exchange developed
exclusively for these families and friends.
ImpactOASIS.com is for anyone and everyone who has had autism as a
part of their lives and wants to share in a vision for the future
of these children that includes promoting the inclusion and
acceptance of autistic individuals into their local communities by
establishing environmentally exemplary farm centers that provide
meaningful work, peaceful and healthy residences and community
interaction. Families and friends of loved ones with autism who
share our vision and recognize that we must plan for the future of
these individuals can start groups and forums to discuss triumphs
and tribulations, share life experiences and strategies, find
support, learn about new treatments, exchange ideas, learn, share,
support and provide solutions. br>

to Impact OASIS.
1. Enter Email Addresses
This simple method lets you enter the email addresses of your
friends separated by commas. You can use the default message
provided, modify it or replace it. Then send.
2. Import from Web Address Book
This method lets you import addresses from your AOL, Gmail,
Hotmail, MSN or Yahoo email (if you have one or more of these). You

contacts. Once you import the addresses, you can select which ones
to send invitations to.

the CSV format. Then browse for the file on your hard drive and
upload the file. Then you can select which people to send

NOTE: Sometimes people you invite may simply type
"www.ImpactOASIS.com" directly into their browser instead of using
the link provided by your invitations. If this happens, there is no
way for Impact OASIS to know that you invited them and you will not
get the referral points. We apologize, there is nothing we can do
I'm getting too many emails from Impact OASIS!
Don't panic. You have complete control. Go to My Settings and click
on the Email tab on the left side. Now you can check or uncheck
notifications you want to receive or not receive, respectively. For
example, if you do not want to automatically follow discussions
that you comment on, just uncheck that box.
What if I accidently block one of my connections?
Go to your Profile, click on the little “man” icon at the top left
in the black bar to open your list of friends/contacts. There,
click on the “blocked” tab and the person should appear there. Then
you can unblock him/her.
What if I Forgot My Password?
If you forget your password, simply use the “forgot your password”
link on the sign in page.
I can’t remember my email address.
First, click the “problems signing in” link and submit a ticket to
Ning (our hosting provider) to help you recover your email or apply
a new email. Ning absolutely controls account
security/authentication, not Impact OASIS.
How do I upload a profile picture?
1.) Go to My Page
2.) Click on “Change My Photo” on the left, underneath your name
3.) On the “My Settings – Profile” page, click on the icon next to
Profile Photo (it’s a small box with a picture icon in it)
4.) Select “Upload an image from your computer,” then “browse” to
upload a picture from your computer
