      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Peculiar sign in trouble

3 posts in this topic

I've always signed on using my email address and OL password, but just now it wouldn't let me. I went through the steps to get a new password sent to my email, and the email said my username was...something other than Ninth Doctor. I used that something with the new password, and I was able to log in, and it says I'm Ninth Doctor, as always. Maybe there's been a change to the software, I don't know where this other username came from, I'm thinking it may be a new, clever way to keep usernames from being hijacked, so I'm keeping quiet about what the new "sign on" username is. I'm sharing this in case anyone else has the same experience. I probably retyped my password 5 times thinking WTF???

Dennis,

We just had an upgrade, so you might have done that during the middle of it.

Under the new IPB policy, I request and they do the upgrades, which means they decide when they will do them. (I used to do them.) I think they changed because some pirated and nulled versions of their software showed up on the torrent sites.

Michael

No biggee. It would be strange if I was the only one affected.
