I didn't see the item about the new board till this morning, and now I've been waiting all day for the final email that will let me post there. I feel so left out. [Frown]

I didn't have to use the activation code. I think that's for if the link doesn't work and you have to do it manually as per the **** Does The Above URL Not Work? **** instructions. If the link worked, you should just have to log in.

Actually, no. Registration dates and post counts will be carried over with each registration, but not necessarily right away. This is one thing everyone will need patient about, as it requires each account to have this checked and filled in individually by the admins.

I'm guessing that this holds true for things like PMs as well?

I haven't seen any official announcements, but I'm assuming that we are encouraged to start any new topics over on the new board. If we all do that, this one should run down fairly swiftly.

The "Community" link on the main ULRP page now leads to the new board. That looks pretty official to me.

It must be difficult, simultaneously moderating two nearly identical boards.

Keeping up with questions that have been answered elsewhere is probably the worst, but it's very minorly irksome rather than difficult. As more people stop posting here and move over there the moderating attention will similarly shift.

(And I just didn't come to this board at all for a couple days, which it made it way easier [Wink] )

Has your account been approved yet? You can't do any of that sort of thing until it's been approved. Once it is, click on "User CF" (on the left right below the snopes.com logo) and you'll find it's pretty self-explanatory. And please do check the Test Issues and Technical Questions forum on the new board. There have been threads about this kind of thing for nearly a week now.
