All I took from that was ‘Users will be silenced’. If silenced with a ball gag I could live with that, if silenced with a nerve agent of a type developed in Russia I’m not so sure.


#122

Can everyone on Youtube watch those videos? We could go viral!


#123

As long as it didn’t actually come from Russia I’m sure you will be fine. This stuff is piss poor if not officially sanctioned by the Ruskies.

Hope that answers your question @gavstar

#126

See you on the flip side.

Or sunday which ever is earlier.

A quick update on the move to new software following an impromptu bored (sic) meeting at the pub on Saturday.

We’ve decided that following positive feedback by the guinea pigs we will be moving to Discourse.

The move needs to be planned and I need some time to migrate the current data and configure the new server. This means I’ll be aiming for next half term (about 6 weeks).

I’ll keep you updated if things change.


#128

Noooooo

It still uses SQL.

Unless it is full on Django and Python don’ do it!!

Oops sorry went geek there.


#129

Can I keep both usernames?

Nobody will guess who I am on there


#130

Well the stuff that scrapes the current Sotonians and posts in the new Sotonians is written in Python and uses MongoDB. No SQL anywhere near it.

(As is Optimus Trousers BTW)

But there’s no way I’d write forum software without a SQL engine.


#131

Yeah, I mean, just who could GolfStory be?


#132

Dang, I’ve been rumbled :lou_facepalm_2:


#133

Internet identity theft.

Bloody Russians again.


#134

@btripz is a Russian ?

Does he have any Vodka?


#135

Hmmm…This migration thing:

  1. Will we need a Blue Passport?

  2. What about holders of the current EU Passport…will they have full rights to the NHS ?

  3. Can I still collect my pension at the Post Office or will I need to open a Bank Account?

  4. Can I also use my other username “youngfella-m’lad”?

  5. Will Bazza still have to undergo the castration process agreed upon in the private exchange of views with Mr. Pap?

OK funsters, I need some volunteers to test out a few new features of the Discourse forum.

We will now allow new sign-ups to login (authenticate with Sotonians) using Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts.

If you’ve got a login with one of these platforms could you try to create a new account?

IF your Facebook, Twitter or Google account actually uses the same email address that you registered with Sotonians with, then instead of a new account you might actually just log in as your old self.

Please let me know what happens.

The Process

Firstly, ensure you are logged in to your account on either Twitter, Facebook or Google. Then visit

https://sotonians.zeitgeistmarys.com

Next, click on the Sign Up button at the top next to the Log in button.

On the next screen, click the account type that you have - Google, Facebook or Twitter.

Follow the instructions that you are given and please report back here what happened.

Let me know the account type (Google, Facebook or Twitter) that you used, what device you are logging in from (PC, Mac, Android phone, iPhone, other phone) and what happened.

Thanks for your help.

Time-wasting twats (That’s you @fatso need not apply.

Tried logging in from Google and it went tits up.

Hopefully screenshot attached.

CD

Google error for Bletch


#138

Nah, that didn’t work either. Now I’ve got to remember how to post images…


#139

Doh … actually I didn’t read the instructions fully or properly …

I logged in from a Samsung Tab S2 with my Google details and I can report that all is well.

My only complaint is that I’m no longer Saint CD but now I’m Saint_CD. Not sure I’m comfortable with that.
