Questions about the new forum login

Sat Jun 01, 2019 2:50 pm

I got an email about a week ago or so about a new change to this forum site something about being able to login to your forum site with your existing Roku account. But what about people like myself who have existing account with this site? Will I be forced to use my Roku account to login to this site and will I lose my existing post? :?:

The email should have explained that if your Roku account email and your forum account email match, then all your past posts and your post counts will still be shown as the same account. But if the email addresses don't match, then you'll basically appear as a new forum user. So that's why they recommend making the email address match.

OK let me see if I'm understanding you correctly I won't need to use the password for my Roku forum account anymore to login to this site? Instead I'll just one password for both my Roku account and this site?

That's my understanding. The same account information you use on the Roku itself will be the same login email and password for the forum.

So I guess I have will have no use for the password I'm using now for this site. :roll:
And I went back and read that email again and it says in the coming weeks this change will take effect. So who knows how long it will be before that change will take place I just hope that they have the curtsy to send us another email when the change takes place. :| :wink:
