    Exclamation Althing-Skadi Forum Merge: Potential Issues

    The Althing has merged into Skadi Forum.

    Logging in
    Should you experience problems logging in, please use the email password option in order to reset your password. If you cannot remember your email address, please use the contact form, specifying your username and new email address there. We will send you a new password and reactivate your account.

    Profiles
    Due to the import and non-corresponding profile field IDs, most profile entries from the Althing are gone. You will thus have to edit your profiles and update your information.

    Also make sure to edit your options.

    Banners
    Should the banner not show up, please go to your user control panel, choose edit options > miscellaneous options > forum banner and select your desired banner. We do not have many banners at the moment, but we will be gradually adding new ones.

    Styles
    As style IDs differ from board to board, you will most likely also need to re-choose your preferred style. To do this, either select it from the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page, or go to your user control panel > edit options > miscellaneous options > forum skin and from there select your preferred style.

    Private Messages
    Those users whose accounts were successfully merged should be able to access all private messages from both Skadi and the Althing.
    Those users whose accounts were not successfully merged should only be able to access private messages from the Althing.

    Reputation
    Due to the import all reputation points from the Althing have been lost. You are now back to your old reputation level on Skadi. Users who were not Skadi members currently have a reputation level of 10 points. We can manually enter your reputation points from the Althing if you let us know the amount, however we cannot restore the comments.

    Join date
    If your Skadi account was merged into your Althing account, your join date will consequently be that of the Althing. If you can remember your Skadi join date, please let us know and we will modify it for you.

    Features
    We have downgraded from vbulletin 3.7 to vbulletin 3.6, as it is a much more stable and bug-free version. Thus, features such as the social groups, visitor messages, etc. will be missing. Modification-related information from the Althing, such as the thanks was also lost, so you are back to your number of thanks from Skadi Forum.

    Usergroups
    As it used to be a bigger forum, Skadi had more usergroups than the Althing.

    If you are a new member and/or you have less than 15 posts, your posts will be moderated, i.e. they will have to be validated by Staff before they become public. This was a measure we considered implementing on the Althing in any case, due to the recent excessive trolling and drama from users who signed up to cause problems.
    The Newbies usergroup is restricted for security reasons, so you will need to have 15 posts in order to be able to use features such as private messaging, reputation, profile viewing, etc.

    Users with more than 15 posts are then promoted to the Juniors usergroup, which has a few more options. The Regulars usergroup gives you access to some private forums. The Funding Member usergroup has additional options. Funding members receive privileges, etc.

    Funding
    If you have an active subscription with the Althing, you must cancel it. Since we changed domain name and servers, Skadi is no longer hosted by Dreamhost.

    I'm not sure if my two accounts were successfully merged. I can't find Madoc on the membership list, but my UCP contained no rep comments from my Skadi account or any pms either. Tried logging in as Madoc, but I can't remember the password. I have 10 rep points but I know I had around 2000 + as Madoc. Last I check I had 2600 + rep points at the Althing.

    Ok, I had 749 Rep points I believe.

    What the heck?

    Same basic problem here.


    Thanks so much for the merge Aeternitas, by the way! - Great idea. I hope all the old posts are here as well.

    Danke,

    My rep is back to 10, although I am pretty sure I had more than this on Skadi , I bet it's because of the Umlaut "ä", that never works with English software, so well, I am here for altruistic reasons anyways, and at least I am red

    There were some issues with some user accounts. The system deleted some old Skadi accounts so we had to reassign the posts to the new, Althing accounts. You should find all your Madoc posts under Æmeric.

    How much reputation did you have?

    Anyone else who has missing reputation points please report.

    Not sure, a little more than my post count, but I can cope well with my now 13 (thanks to SuuT)
    Only the old messages were sometimes funny to read again.

    Edit: Uh, weeee, well, thanks anyways.
