  • The Topic merge is complete, now on to the general posts (“Replies”)

    Posted on April 17th, 2019 at 09:22 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    We’ve hit 163,500 Topics. That’s one whole heckuvalot of questions.

    Next stop: The answers to the Topics (bbPress calls them “Replies”). No idea how long it’ll take to bring them over, but I’ll keep you posted. Once the Topics are done we have some important work ahead — bringing over the old Newsletters, expanding the types of files that can be safely posted — and all sorts of tweaks and twerks to the site, but we’ll have the hard work behind us.

    In the interim, feel free to post on any of the Topics you see here (look at the list on the lower right side). Your posts (“Replies”) will carry through the transition. You can create new Topics (ask new questions), too. Don’t be bashful. Just make sure you’re using an AskWoody account that doesn’t look like an email address. And if you had a Windows Secrets account, make sure you read the Windows Secrets Landing page for important information on how to retrieve your old account. It’s here, but with a different name.

    We aren’t yet ready to merge Windows Secrets accounts with AskWoody accounts. That’ll happen after all the Replies are in place. Baby and bathwater and all. Patience.

    The converted Windows Secrets accounts — the ones with “WS” on the front — will be good for all eternity. If you’re OK with your WS account, I’m OK with it, too. As long as it isn’t your email address. 🙂

    For those of you who have written to me at : Sorry I’m slow getting back to you, but I’ve been positively hammered. Don’t worry. I’ll get you covered.

    Back to work…
