    Lightbulb Login or username problems? Read for help!

    To help with the transition to the new web site & forum/message board system, I volunteered to assist and Rev Dave accepted. I have some "extra" powers to help with problems and smooth the transition.

    If you are having or had problems getting your account to reactivate, send me a PM or Email (click my user name at the top of this post and then choose either option or you can direct email me at SeaCatMich@gmail.com).

    In reviewing the logs of new registered users, I have noticed quite a few new IDs created that are similar to old IDs. My guess is that some have had trouble getting their old user name reactivated. This can be fixed!

    The user accounts from the old system were migrated to the new, but for a variety of reasons quite a few people are having trouble getting his/her transferred account to reactivate. The new forum has a administrator utility called "account merge" which I can use to resolve this issue.

    If you now have two (or more) user names/IDs/accounts and would like to have these consolidated into one, PM or Email me (SeaCatMich@gmail.com) the following information:

    1. The names of your accounts
    2. Which one you want to be the "active" account
    3. If you want the old account to be the active one, specify the email address to use and the password you want (you can always go change the password once the account is active).
    If you have not been able to get your old account to reactivate, I can also help. Again, PM or email me!

    So far I have directly contacted a few members that I saw had very similar names and/or the same email addresses on more than one account. Have been able to fix everyone!



    What the merge function does is:
    • Combines the post count for the two user names
    • Relabels all posts for either user name with the one designated as active
    • Resets the join date to the date of the user name created first

    You guys are welcome. I'm glad that I hae been able to provide some help. It is nice to combine my two main skills in life -- fishing and computers!

    If anyone else needs help let me know. Post here, or send me a PM or email (click my user name at the top left of the post).

    If anyone has any suggetions, send those in as well. Don't know if they can be done, but I will work with Editor Dave and Web Admin Dave and we will see what can happen.
