    Yeah, we're tracking, @monroe-somebody! I can't imagine that more than one of you would want to hang here anyway. It just isn't big enough for multiple Monroes. B)

    Could you try to log in again - the same way you previously logged in, and got the password message? To my knowledge, that is not a message anywhere in our system.

    I tried to log on the same way I used to but I get a blank page.
    Snake, I mean the new way - Log out, then click the "Log In or Register" button found on forums.edmunds.com. Then, click "sign in" on the pop up, way down at the bottom of the pop-up. Enter your email address associated with your original account, and the password you chose when registering for Insider with that email. THEN, let me know the exact wording of any error message you get.

    OK I kept getting that same no account associated with the email message. I tried everything, going to the full site, clearing out my browser history, cookies and everything but nothing worked. Then several hours later Edmund's sent me an email with a link to continue my registration (A big thanks to PF Flyer who got my email changed). So now I am back, but why did it take so long to get that email?

    Handsome as ever, snake.

    Well I'm not. Still sunburned but that started before the switch over. If I used my old email, that was also wrong eventhough I tried to change it many times over the years, I would not have recevied the confirmation email with the link to complete my Insider Account. This new monster has not been close to what it was supposed to be, at least not for me, but I'm not the least bit surprised. The reverse would have surprised me.

    Perhaps PF_Flyer or Kirstie can help you out jmonroe.  I need to have you happy and spunky again - mods please help jmonroe with this! 

    FWIW, I don't need help...I need looked after. :'(

    Thanks for the suggestion anyhow.

    I just went back into my profile page and that field with the email address is no longer there. Maybe it got removed as part of this switchover?

    I guess I'll be eligible for pull forward from mid November onward, unless they change the 6 payment scheme. Still not sure what I want to do - if I can buy out this car at a reasonable price, I probably will, if not, I have a world of options.

    @fintail - ready to start shopping when you are!

    Are you trying to get jmonroe even more upset than he already is?  If so, if it was me, I would slap you with a wreckless endangerment lawsuit!  B)

    The only way I can even get in is by going incognito, which was suggested by Edmunds, and ironically going incognito shows my name to everyone, which raises all sorts of issues. Now I am getting an email from Edmunds alerting me each time someone makes a post ! I can't delete them fast enough. I have to sign in thru my google acct and use the gmail acct and password, which is different from my old hotmail acct. and password. I am afraid I am doomed !! Heck, what if I had been in a witness protection program.

    It seems like you are the poster boy for things having gone wrong during the change out.

    Hope you can get back to your houdini nom de plume.

    To turn off those emails, go to the gear symbol, from the flydown menu pick edit profile. Then pick notifications, the second down the list. Turn off the emails for posts.

    I recall long ago we had another Monroe here and his accounts got mixed up. He ended up signing back in with a new user name, Sterlingdog. I don't recall his original user name--too many goldfish have swum around the bowl in my head to recall.

    Thx imid, that would seem like a simple solution, but I have no idea how to accomplish it. There doesn't seem to be any way to delete your acct. in settings. Kirstie has been trying to help but no luck so far.

    If you are at the main forums screen with the box on the right containing your (new) user name, click on the user name to take you to the Profile screen. Click the little box with the head and down arrow in the top right to edit your profile. Then click on the "Notification Preferences" item on the left side to go in there and turn them off.

    Houdini,
    If you're saying you're not sure how to do what I suggested to turn off notifications... If you're
    in the right user name for which they're being sent, this may help.

    Are you able to see this in the right hand top of the screen you're logged into?

    That's the spot... all those check boxes. As a mod, I've always bookmarked a lot of discussions. ONCE, I tried email notifications. That might work for someone following a single thread they don't want to miss anything in, but if you use it for multiple discussions, or a busy one like this one (or worse yet, multiple threads with busy ones mixed in), it can be an inbox nightmare :)

    Sort of like my house phone land line ringing off the hook by scammers and the like.  I just don’t answer that phone any more.

    I worded that poorly. The forums are there, but I can't find any discussions on them from the past several days. They all show closed threads or threads that have been idle for some time. Did a setting change?

    Yeah just make sure you get that Latin passage right, last time I tried that I ended up on a farm in Kansas.

    Wait a minute Houdini - aren't you supposed to be an escape artist ;) Seriously, what a hassle that will probably be a pain to resolve.
  • houdini2houdini2 Posts: 343
    That's where I am now. Did Edmunds have to go thru the FISA COURT to unmask me?
  • fintailfintail Posts: 47,952
    Now that I look, it seems the default sorting changed. I find newer discussions in the middle of the list. Gotta find a way to fix that.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 9,202
    Aha, I went and browsed by Classic Cars and I see what you mean. Nice catch! Likely unrelated to the login switch, there is always work going on at Vanilla, so it's possible some setting got flipped. Many thanks for bringing it to our attention!

    Really appreciate the extra sets of eyes looking into the corners that we may not look into every day.
