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.

#140

Tried logging in with my fb account and it wont let me use my user name :frowning:


#141

Cheers @saint-cd , appreciate the effort.

Unfortunately, the new forum will force us all to remove our spaces.

Remember this is just a test forum so nothing you post there will be copied back here (here being sotonians.com) but new posts from here will be copied there (there being sotonians.zeitgeistmarys.com).

Clear?


#142

Oh, and whilst you were trying your Google login it was broken but I just fixed it so it might not have been you, it might have been me.


#143

Is this The Matrix?


#144

What is the message, @tigger ?

Is it complaining about spaces or other characters?

Ahh, if you’re trying to use Tigger then that won’t work because that already belongs to you - you are effectively creating a second account.

This is just a test site.

WHEN we move to Discourse properly you will have the Tigger username still.


#145

Okay then, logged in


#146

Good evening Mr Davies.


#147

Too bloody complicated

On a phone

When it automatically lots me in.

Maybe after I finish drinking Czech beer with my Italian Pizza in Krakow.

Logged on using Google account

Seems I’m still Technofucktard on the new site.

Can I keep that as my alter-ego?
