    Yes. Or to put it another way, if anybody wants to continue using their "WS" account, they'll have to set up a new password for that account using the regular "Lost password" routines. We aren't bringing across any passwords from Windows Secrets.

    Yep, once the whale is swallowed, you'll have two accounts on AskWoody: bbearren and WSbbearren. At least, that's the way I envision it right now.

    You can write to me at CustomerSupport@AskWoody.com and request to have the WSbbearren account -- all of it, including your posts -- merged into bbearren.

    The devs may tell me that's impossible, but right now it appears to be the best way.

    I guess I'm still a little confused LOL (which isn't hard to do for me).
    If I'm reading your post right and reading your reply to bbearren correctly, it sounds like there will be 2 separate forums. There will be a WS forum and an AW forum all at the same address.

    Depends on what you mean by "forum." We'll all be in AskWoody.com. I've created new forums in AskWoody to map directly to forums here. We'll start out with a big infusion of posts (technically, Topics and Replies) in those new forums, but over time I expect folks will find the forum that fits their questions.
