    This thread is no longer necessary. Every question should be redirected to the new FAQ thread.


    I know "some people" rarely check Comms and usually ignore stickies, soooooo...

    Excerpted from this week's MSU:

    Tell a friend.

    Argh, I just remembered to save a couple of my socks and the stupid system wouldn't let me use the same e-mail address so I had to use three different ones. Now I have to remember which ones I used! :_|

    Make a list. Save it on your computer. Hide it from your "girlfriend".

    So, I have to do this with all socks?

    Can I use the same active address for them all?

    Nope, you can't. The system won't let you save a profile if it has the same email address as another account. If all your socks have the same email address, just leave them alone and make sure your primary account is updated.

    can we have an exact timeline of when the move will actually begin so I can just do all this crap at the last minute? @};-

    If I had dates, I would be telling you them.

    Your socks won't be unusable after the move if you don't update them. You'll just have to get an admin to update them for you, though we'll have to verify they're yours first.

    What criteria will you use to determine that?

    Usernotes, knowing the email address on the account, IP addresses from posts, etc.

    What we don't want is a thousand users filling up Comms and our PM boxes after the move complaining that they can't log into their accounts. So if you have the time to do this yourself right now, do it. If not, you'll have to wait for an admin to do it for you, which might take a while.

    I checked and both this account and one of my socks are using the same e-mail address, though you say this isn't possible. Is this a problem? Should I try to make it so only one account is using each address?

    No, that's okay. It's an old sock, right? Different users could share e-mail addresses before, but IGN changed it during one of the updates; the boards won't let you do it anymore.

    If you're concerned about saving your old threads or PMs, check out the handy backup tool that Xan posted here. It will allow you to "automagically download and save stuff from the JC" just in case.

    Oh, dear. I should hate to lose all those old PMs where myself and Ani_dala cybered late into the night!

    Just created a new AOL.com e-mail account, and updated my profile. :) Hopefully, things don't get screwed up anyway during the move.:p
