New forum means new login?
« on: September 30, 2005, 09:23:51 AM »
I discovered that the forum was back up yesterday, and immediately tried to login, and get back to discussing my favorite game, but I consistantly recieved the error message that my username did not exist, both at the login screen and password recovery screens.  So I've created a new one, and as a further frustration my former user ID wouldn't fit in the characters alloted.  For those of you who may know me from the old forums I used to post under the login Gallagher_Standard_Barer.

I am wondering if anyone else had a similar problem?

PS: Great work on the new site Excelsior.

Gallagher, I remember you from the old forum, from some Chronopia posts. (I don't play Warzone yet).  The whole site was rebuilt so we all had to start over.  Thom's got an explanation on this new forum under the Excelsior bits.  Nice to have you back.  Cheers.
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

yeah, it's an entirely new forum.  Not just a redone one.

  Well at least the forums are working.  But now nobod will know of our gloriously large number of posts and high rankings of the last forum.  I weep. But hey, its good to be back.  Does anyone know how I can upload my avatar photo? I keep trying to use my old one but alas, I fail.
