Welcome to BBS!
Let me clarify some details about accounts on BBS. Here’s a good summary from @beschizza:
So, if you had more than 50 comments on Disqus:
- We reserved your username.
- That username is tied to an email address.
- Your BBS account has not been created yet. Please create your account before trying to log in. You’ll be able to set your full name and password at that time.
- When you register on BBS, enter that same username and email address, and the sign up form will tell you that they match.
If you had less than 50 comments on Disqus:
- Your old username has not been reserved.
- Make a new BBS account. Try to use your old username, but there are no guarantees that it’s available.
Some other points:
- You don’t need to make an account on meta.discourse.org. BBS is one of Discourse’s official partners, so it’s fully integrated with the Discourse nickname registry.
- Disqus comments are not being moved to Discourse. They stay in Disqus.
