    Given this is your FIRST and ONLY post on MSE (which is why you can't post a link) in almost 8 and a half years since joining, thank you for your input, BUT WHY should anyone take a blind bit of notice of anything you have to say?


    Because he has provided valuable insight into the realities of the situation which people would be well advised to pay attention to.


    Quantity is rarely a sure fire indication of quality.

    Not sure how I get round this one.



    my computer remembers my password not me (its an old account) so I can't change the email as you need to know your password to change it.


    So the password is stored in your browser. Go to your browser settings, find the password, set yourself a new email.

    If you don't know how to do it, just ask Google (tell it which browser you use). You could ask on MSE too, if you don't mind people suggesting you use Google.;)

    Does it need a change?
    I’m a forum newbie so don’t judge but other than how clunky it is on mobiles I can’t see any issues?

    Is it just me thinking if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?

    So, like every other member I received an email from MSE saying,
    You'll need to log in using the email address on your account, and will be required to reset your password as MSE will not be transferring your existing one for security reasons. If your email address isn't correct at the time of the switchover, then we will not be able to give you access after the move.
    You must take action now: Click here to check and update your email address before 3 February 2020
    So, I clicked the above link to check my email address and was then presented with a screen inviting me to either enter my current password to continue or to change my password.

    Question: as my email address has been recognised, MUST I change my password now, or leave that until after 3 February 2020? (I don't want to change it now, and then find I have to change it again after 3 February!)

    Thanks.

    as has been said many times recently, if your email address is correct there is no reason to change your password

    In my experience (from many other websites), just being presented with a screen asking for your password does NOT mean you email address has been recognised. Enter a password and it could still throw you out because it doesn't recognise either the email address or the password. The only way to be sure your email address is correct it to actually log in using it.

    If your email address is fine (ie. you can log in using it), then there's no need to change your password now.

    So what's the vibe then? Is the new forum going to be total garbage like the last "update" or is it going to all fresh new and cool like the latest Iphone? Anyone testing it can share a screenshot with us?

    It's gonna be awful innit :(. I've seen that Digital Spy one, wasn't good.

    Even if they claim they'll be copied, I'd be sure to keep the information handy just in case it doesn't happen smoothly / accurately. (I used to work in IT, and have had snags with software implementations that weren't as big as this will be!)
