Hi all:

We are in the first steps of a major forum upgrade. The first step in an export/import of the database, and during trial runs we have noticed one thing - that those members who have more than one account, and that have used the same email address for those accounts are having those accounts merged during this process. In other words, when the new forum goes live those who this pertains to will have merged accounts with their doppelgangers. Please don't let this happen to you.

If you only have one account - and have only had one account -then you are good to go, and get a gold star on your forehead since you have abided by our forum rules. :D

For those who have been here for ages and have forgotten whether or not you have some old accounts, please log into those accounts and update them with a unique email address. Thanks!

If you don't know if this pertains to you, then please log out, and then go to the login "forgot your password" link and enter your email address. You will receive a "reset your password link" to that email address from all of your accounts.

Please do this ASAP since we are scheduled for a new import/export try tomorrow. :D

Not 100% sure i am clear on this one, but if i ever had another account, i am betting on another email addy..but i really doubt it :p
I'd hate to do a password recovery cause i just recently updated it to the most perfect and uncrackable password ever! (one that i could still remember lol!)
And NO, you sneaky lot lurking in the dark net: that was not a challenge! :p

You don't have to reset the password, but you would see your other accounts. :D

I'd grab the gold star with both hands but don't wanna run the risk of looking like a McDonald's employee :oops:

It won't be down tomorrow. No worries.

What we are doing are practice import/export exercises before we do the real thing. That may not be happening for a week or so.

Before then, CAG members will be invited to have a go. It's new and improved software, and I want to make sure everything is in order before opening it up to the masses. :D

And then it's party time. The forum will be 21st century ready.

We have about 689 email addresses used in more than one account. I am going through these by hand and checking these accounts. Many of the emails are for accounts that have been dormant for ten years or so. :rolleyes: I have been working on this since right after lunch - done 2/3s already. :p

Well I finished this task. Took most of the day and then some. 689 addresses connected to 2, 3, sometimes four accounts. Many were dormant, and a number were banned or disabled. But it's pretty clean now. :D
