Where'd all my stuff go?!

Travel Forums System Talk Where'd all my stuff go?!

Hmmmm.....

Have been a member of TP for about 2.5 years, but probably not been updating/posting for about a year (amily cos lookign at this site when I don't have the time to travel makes me sad).....and in the interim, all my details, photos, blogs, travel maps etc have disappeared. I've been getting 'Helper' emails all the way along, so I know my account was still active....

Does all your uploaded information and files disappear after a period of inactivity? Would just be good to know for the future....

You apparently have two usernames. The other one, under which all your information is stored, is Emmelina.

Wack!! How can I log in under two user names then? My technical ignorance is evident here! Also, having a range of usernames that I use for different accounts can't help.

Cool - will log out of this name and into my other.....

Let me know if you want me to remove one of the usernames to avoid confusion :)

That would be awesome - thanks Sam.

It would be great if all the info could be stored under 'Emmalineau' as that's the ID i use for Twitter, Flikr and other stuff. Emmelina can be floated off into the gret blue yonder.

Thanks!

Hmm, now that's rather tricky I'm afraid. It would be a manual operation for me to do and although I'd probably do it for a few forum entries, the busiest of your accounts is actually the one the content needs moving from. I'd be way too concerned about something going wrong :(

I do have an idea however

Login under your emmalineau account and go to your my profile page. Change your username to something else. Anything is fine here as basically this account is the one being closed.

Log out and then login under your emmelina account. Go to the same My Profile page there and change the username to Emmalineau. You can't do this step first as it will tell you that username is already taken, hence step one above.

As there are only 3 forum posts under what is currently your emmalineau account, I could move those over for you, or we could just inactivate that profile after the changes have been made and not worry about the posts (2 of which are in this thead :) ).

What do you think?

All sorted!

Thanks for the help.
