Thought we would post up the FAQs we are receiving through our contact forums so we could share the answers with everyone.
Question from old site member:
My password from the old forums won’t work on this site! What do I do?
You will need to REGISTER on this site in order to have access. The old forums were on software that was not compatible with any form of user database transfer so new accounts are needed.
I registered but my post is blocked. Why?
We have spam protection in place that sends your initial post to moderation so the mods can confirm you are a real person and not some malicious spam bot trying to trick our community into clicking on malware links. We understand this is a pain and the mods are trying their best to get your posts approved and moving for you.
Why did you move the forums?
The old site was broken, out of date and just could not be maintained any longer. We became aware a few weeks ago that the registration and password reset functions no longer worked. Given the age of the product it could not be fixed and this forced our hand in doing the site transfer. The old forums had many, many other broken features everyone was “putting up” with. Updating will allow us to improve your user experience and provide better security for your personal data.
Soooo, welcome to the new forums and websites. Things are different from the old and this will take some getting used to in the beginning. Change is never fun, we understand that. Expect to see enhancements and improvements as we bed things down and get a feel for what the community would like to see on this new site. Let us know what you would like added and we will see what we can do to make this a bigger and better place for the community and developers going forward!
