link/merge old forum accounts?

Hi,

 

when we changed from the old forum (with NNTP) to this one and Lithium, I was unable to use my old username (probably due to the space), but all the old posts are still on the system.  Is there any way to change the old posts to this username?

I think those 4 x "Sam M" are all my old logins (presumably different accounts due to posting via different means - eg Opera, NNTP, IE, etc).

 

Cheers, Sam

That has been asked and is being looked into by certain who-shall-remain-nameless:smileyhappy: individuals who run this place.

I've got 183 under cshade myself.

(And if you really want to see something look up Dean Saadallah and variations. The man doesn't sleep!)

You know I'm making fun about not sleeping but then think about the other stuff you pull out like the tip from Cadalyst the other day and figure you must not eat either to keep up with the reading/research as well.

Tell me about it...I've got 1500+ from the NNTP days...but am "officially" barely out of single digits. :-) Maybe someday we'll be able to link them back -- in the meantime, just keep posting...
