2015-10-25: Tech announcement, again on login issues

Post 1

h2g2 Operations

Tech are still working on getting the login issues fixed, and part of that is to add automated handling of "forgotten password", where a temporary token is sent to the email on file. When completed, this will ensure that the reset can only be processed by the actual holder of the account. We hope this will be implemented shortly.

Meanwhile, you can always use the numeric part of your User Number, or you can update your preferences and put your old user name into the Login Name box, and again use this to login.
Note that the Login Name is wholly separate from the Screen name, as it has always been.

If you have login problems, you can contact the volunteers at [email protected]

If you have previously been able to log in, you should NOT click the link "Transfer or reactivate your old account", which is for users returning to h2g2 who have not accessed their accounts since BBC days.

We're sorry this is taking so long, it's frustrating to us all, but work is going on.
