Folks, as we attempt the transition over to the new boards shortly, there may be an issue with some of your existing accounts coming over.

Several members have asked for a place to go if they are having issues.

We have an e-mail account that we will be checking regularly, it is: <span id="gbgs4d"><span style="max-width: 518px; text-align: left;" id="gbgs4dn">giantsboards@gmail.com</span></span> (https://google.com/profiles)

If you are having an issue, please have your Account Name, and be able to provide us with the e-mail account you used to set up your account.

Hopefully the issues will be minimal, but we won't know until we get there. That is just the nature of migrations.

LOL. Wasn't there a long thread a couple weeks ago saying that in a week the boards were going to be transitioned?

Tommy (or any other Mod), you might want to sticky this so it doesn't get lost.

To be fair, that email is also listed in several different spots on the boards, such as just about every Code Of Conduct/Board Rules thread. There's even an announcement thread titled "Contacting the Mods" that was posted on 5-10-09. However, most of those threads automatically get hidden after 2 months and you have to go to Forum Options to change the filter date to see them.

Probably wouldn't be a bad idea if they repost that info when the new boards go live, though.

Something noteworthy:

If you can't access your account on the new boards, you <u>must</u> be able to provide the email address that you have on file with your current account on <u>this</u> board. Its the only verification we will have to ensure that it is in fact the actual poster who owns the account, and not someone else trying to take over another account. If you dont know the email address you used, I strongly suggest that you look right now. Check your profile. We can't help you if you don't know it.

You need to know what it is to prove you are who you say you are. The email address doesn't serve any practical purpose other than that. If you have a problem transitioning and communicate as Tom has indicated, you will need to KNOW the email you used. It does not have to be active.

Mine was thru my old employer and I forgot that email address. I have changed it to a personal one sometime two years ago. So providing you with the updated one will not work if I read this correctly. Are there any solutions?

No - just make note of what it is.

It is one of the checks we will ask you to verify that the account you claim is yours, is actually yours.

In other words - I get an e-mail from someone saying they can;t get into their account, and their user name is Harooni. Well since Harooni is such a 'Unique' member of the boards, I want to make sure the person e-mailing me is the real Harooni. I can verify that by that person telling me the original e-mail account that they used to sign up, and we can set up a new password for them.

This is assuming we get the e-mail from a different address than what is listed in the profile. I originally signed up like 9 years ago with a work e-mail, and I haven;t been there for 7 years. But I would need to identify that e-mail address that I originally used to set up the Tommy_Ribs account.

Last time I had to do this, I just gave an them an idea of what my email could've been, and they said it was close enough. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have started our descent/in preparation for the new boards, please make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and all carry-on luggage is stowed underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead bins. Please turn off all electronic devices until we are safely parked at the gate. The mods are currently passing around the cabin to pick up any remaining cups and glasses.
