Join the CTAN Com­mu­nity

Here you can re­quest a new com­mu­nity ac­count. We only ask for min­i­mal in­for­ma­tion.

To avoid abuse an anony­mous ac­cess is not al­lowed. We want to at least know who has pro­vided some piece of in­for­ma­tion. For this pur­pose any­one can reg­is­ter a user ac­count. The min­i­mum re­quire­ment is the ex­is­tence of a work­ing email ac­count.

After the reg­is­tra­tion has been sub­mit­ted an ac­knowl­edge URL is sent via email to the email ad­dress en­tered. This en­sures that the email is work­ing – at least at this time.

The CTAN team re­serves the right to lock out users who are mis­be­hav­ing or for other rea­sons.

Com­mu­nity User In­for­ma­tion
User name*
The ac­count is a unique name for your lo­gin. You can change the other pa­ram­e­ters but the ac­count stays the same. The ac­count is shown as name if ev­ery­thing else fails. There are nearly no re­stric­tions on the ac­count (Ex­cept the length and some for­bid­den char­ac­ters). You can for in­stance use your full name or your email ad­dress as ac­count name.
Name*
This is your real name. It is here at least for doc­u­men­tary pur­poses. We do not pass on your name if you don''t want to.
