I seem to have an issue with my forum account. This is, apparently, my second post, I have sent no messages and received none and I have no signature.
BUT I DO!!!!

Would this be related to installing the new app and then changing what I though was my nickname (but is my username) and back again?

Yep, that's right. Unfortunately changing your username doesn't play nice with the forums. I don't know if there's anything that can be done about it.

Yes, I notice that my "old" account exists with what was (nearly) my nickname.
Dumb.

Wait, so are you the same CTCNetwork that has been around for several years? What exactly happened here?

Yes! I certainly hope so.
All happened when I installed the new Waze version where it asked for the user name. My confusion about there being no nickname for registered users and changing the username to the nick name (which was taken) My old account is now Wonk0TheSane and has all posts, messages, siggy etc.

If I was an admin I'd use the phpBB Support Tool and merge this account with the other and then rename the account to this name.... :)

To whom should I direct a request for this?

I believe Alanoftheberg may have that level of forum access.

Hi,

Unfortunately there is nothing he can do about this. Anyone who has also had this issue will need to raise a support call with Waze support to merge your forum accounts (if you end up with 2 of them) and then all should be Ok. Which has now been done for moi. :)

Unfortunately it looks as if any thanks you have got are then gone... :( Although if you merge the new one into the old (renamed) one I suspect you keep your old thanks count and old forum id.

PM outbox stuck

The few msgs so far seem to stick in the Outbox and don't send; have tried resending, etc. Ideas? Thanks.

It's still in the outbox becoz the person you PMed has not read your PM yet.

Forum navigation is a pain. Needs to be clearer and easier.

slightly off topic:
It sure would be nice if we could search our PM folders like we can search the Forums!
