@Sonshine7 You don't need to use your old email address on the new site, or at any point during the process of linking your accounts. When you go to the new site and sign up, you'll get a redirect back here to confirm your username, and once you do so, you can complete the registration using a different email.

The process apparently works better if you're already signed in here when you click the redirect link.

@puzzleaddict and how are they supposed to access confirmation email when it's sent to the old email account?

When users are asked for their email address as part of the conversion process and they enter a new one, I don't see why the confirmation email would be sent to the wrong account. The email would be generated by Nraas.net, not Wikispaces.

Creating a new account is currently not possible. I have been a member since 2012 but didn't rejoin this specific page
until today so I could post. Is this why? And also it wasn't let me post a bit ago so some of you may have got a message from me. I apologize. I was trying to reach Chain and it wasn't letting. me.

@Bluegayle - You were not actually an NRaas member until just an hour ago. NRaas wiki membership (not just a Wikispaces account, that you already had) became a requirement to participate here actively in 2014 when the spammers otherwise began to find us. Therefore, for the moment anyway, this rule still holds on account conversions to the new site:

"Note this is only available to users who registered here on or before August 15th 2018 at this time."

The new site will not be ready to accept new(er) members probably until Oct 1 or so. You don't really have any history under this screen name to protect but in theory someone else could grab your screen name so in that event you would have to use a slightly different one.

@igazor Thanks. I kind of figured that but thought I would check it out. I so rarely post on forums I probably missed that completely. I'll watch for when we can move to new site and hopefully get in with my current screen. I have had for almost 18 years. :-)

I'll be doing another member export in a few weeks and then you'll be able to follow the steps above. Check back then.

ACK!! I went to the link and clicked on the "here" and my acct was successfully redirected. However, when I clicked on the "login" at the top and enter my name and pw, it does not redirect me back to this site. I keep getting the msg that logging in has been disabled until tomorrow. Any suggestions? Maybe I should wait until tomorrow?
