Straightening out user accounts has been one of the biggest challenges of this migration. Any given person could have had a forum username, an amember username (the system we used to use to manage CCC memberships) and those could have been the same, had the same e-mail or been completely different. Sorting through this has been like a logic puzzle of ever changing variables.
All the amember username and passwords were brought over and are tied to the membership info (visible on the CCC member tab on the "My account" page). Anyone who was is/was a CCC member (current or expired) should be able to log in with their amember username and password.
Having trouble remembering your amember username and password? Here's an easy way to figure them out - Request a new password. You will not need to know your username. Simply type in your email address and then follow the directions you receive via email. Your username and a special link will be sent to you. Use that link to reset your password.
If this doesn't work, or you have trouble during this process, email or PM Scott Gilliam and he'll try to help you out.
As of today, I have purged forum accounts that have not been used since we moved to the new site. If you are using an old forum account from the previous CCC site, please update your email address in the edit tab on "My Account". This will sync you up with other data in the system (hopefully). You are likely seeing an error when you log in and the empty e-mail address is the cause of that error.
If you try to use your old forum name and it does not work, you will need to create a new account. That's easy to do and takes just a few minutes.
