Title: Important info on forum and Uogateway email address
Post by: Red Squirrel on January 16, 2021, 05:33:21 PM
This is just a reminder that you should ensure that the email address you use for the forum and Uogateway is valid, and that you actually remember it. Ex: that it's not something random that you never use. This will be important in the near future as you will need it in order to recover your account after the forum migration. We will be migrating to a new platform and it will require a password reset as there is no way to migrate the hashed passwords over.

The new platform will also be setup a bit differently, in that your account will be managed from a separate account management system. The idea behind this is that the account will work for pretty much with any 3rd party system I setup, such as shard submissions.  That way everything will use same login, simpler for everyone.

This is a project that I procrastinated a ridiculous amount on, the goal is actually to get Iceteks and Anythingforums back online, two sites that I managed way before I even had UOG.

The goal of the new forum will be to act as an alternate place for general discussion. Social media is kind of taking over the forum world these days but it still can't hurt to keep the forum thing going, I still think it's superior. The timing is kind of good given the whole censorship stuff going on social media these days... but let's not go there eh.

Either way my goal is to try to make the transition as smooth as possible, as I don't want to turn into EA.
