you need to create a brand new account on the new site and providing your username hasn't been taken you can re-use your old one.

Some people have had issues with their internet service provider as they have not received their account activation email. There have been issues with Comcast and Hotmail on another website. If you think you might face such a problem then use a gmail account as no one has reported any issues with them.

Your password needs to longer than nine characters but doesn't need any special characters e.g. "$ % & #"

There is no longer a gallery at this time on the new site and it is possible to upload pictures from your smart phone directly to the new site. please keep the file size of each picture below 4MB.

I will update this post as more information becomes available.

For those of us with longer threads here and concerned with "losing" the content -

Quoted Text

Linking works now but I don't know how it will behave when Jim archives the old forums. Not sure how the "html-mummy" works together with linking to specific topics/threads

I was wondering this as well, so I just gave it a test run. I have copied my "Gearing Class Odyssey" thread across from MSW to the new site and dropped a link to the old archived thread into the first post on the new site. It appears as boxed title in the new thread (circled in YELLOW in the image below) and when clicked opens in a new window on my browser.

I will be restarting some of my longer threads this way on the new forums, not copying the whole thread across.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, D
