  • A few notes for first-timers

    Posted on September 9th, 2019 at 11:51 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    We’re getting a whole new round of first-time posters. Not sure if it’s the newsletter that’s prompting folks to dig in here, or maybe it’s just folks getting back from summer vacation, but you’re most welcome!

    Some useful links:

    Don’t know where or what to post? Start here.

    Missing Windows Secrets? It disappeared in January. Gotcha covered.

    If you inherited a username that’s an email address (old Windows Secrets Newsletter subscribers were brought across that way), get yourself a “proper” AskWoody username. It’s free. It’s easy. You won’t lose your subscription…. and you can’t do it by yourself.

    Any other questions? Click Comment on the AskWoody Lounge (up above) and fire away…

    We were all newbies once.

  • Welcome to Windows Secrets Lounge transplants

    We haven’t yet “swallowed the whale” — moved the 40,000 Windows Secrets user accounts and 1 million posts over to AskWoody — but (I’m assured) it’ll be happening soon.

    In the interim, hundreds of Windows Secrets Loungers have already signed up here with AskWoody accounts, and hundreds of additional Windows Secrets Newsletter subscribers have made the leap. Just a reminder: If you’re trying to log on to this site with a username that’s also your email address, you need to go through the (easy!) steps to set up a “proper” AskWoody account. Your old subscriptions will come across with you. You have my word on that — and you know where to reach me.

    If you’re new to AskWoody, check out the Welcome! tab at the top. Some of the information there may help you make the transition.

    So dive in and post away. We have a large group of very helpful people here who just love taking on new challenges.
