I think the theory is, you make the link now between your identities on both sides of the forums. I *think* nothing is supposed to happen as a result of that, not yet. After the merger, your Adobe ID will show up as author of your previous posts over here. I think. And you'll be able to change your screen name, which you can't currently do for your Adobe ID, and that should ripple back through your previous posts. I think.

I'm not at all sure that the linking process has anything to do with the nonsense we've been seeing over repeated log-in being required the last couple of days. 'Browser session cookie' doesn't really cover it, as multiple attempts can be required during one session. That is, you manage to log in, you write a post, you get logged out. That's not a new session. And being able to post as a guest is just plain weird, especially as the post appears with your regular screen name attached.

I agree about star ratings and points. Totally unnecessary.

OK so if the accounts are combined why does it show I've only made 453 posts. That does not seem combined to me.

I don't think they are combined yet. They are just ready to be combined, now you've made the connection. I think.

I get the feeling that the people having logging in problems this time are the same people who had them last time things were changed - am I right? As far as I am aware, the problem only affects a handful of users, and a very significant proportion are not reporting any difficulties. So it would seem to be related to your local setups - not that that actually represents a solution, I realise.

Sure they changed something at this end rather than at yours, Kath, but there's something (what??) about the way your computer and those of the others having trouble is set up that gives problems when Adobe make these changes. And there's something about mine and most users' (what?) that gives no problem at all - so far! I'm chiefly dispelling the impression that some may have that the whole system has gone the shape of a pear for all users. It's a problem but not a global disaster.

Over here http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b7ecca/24 I mention that I think the problem is that cookies were corrupted by whatever was done on Friday... since my work computer that was off from Friday afternoon until this morning has no problems at all

I am hoping that deleting all cookies when I get home and starting with a fresh login will fix the problems on that computer

No, cookies are not "fixed"

If you loged in recently, your cookie was rewritten from permanent to session... so you have to log in every time... this happened to me at home

Here at work, where my computer was off over the weekend, my cookies did not hit the "golden window" and I am good to go without a login... or, when I "linked" my ID according to the new rules from home (and cookies were reset) here at work where I of course use the same login ID the cookies were not reset

Anyway... this will all HOPEFULLY sort itself out in April with the new forum

Watch out. You must have missed the window. Now you may be totally shut out when the changeover happens. :|

Same here. I haven't experienced any issues from work.

I think you're on to something. From work I normally go to the Acrobat forums and a few others before hitting the lounge. It's the opposite at home.

The lounge is no access for guests, so a link to it would not be visible unless you are logged in. And if you try to go directly there, the software will ask for credentials before it'll let you in.
