Hi...

 

As you know, the IPTVConnection site was merged into DBSTalk.  Some of our members had accounts on both sites.  As such, some merging of accounts took place. 

 

Here is the logic of the member database merge...

 

If when attempting to convert a member, if the member already exists with the same email address in the target forum then the members are merged.  The DBSTalk account is then the account that would be used and all content is then associated with that account.

 

If a duplicate username is found, but with a different email address, then the user is converted into DBSTalk but the current timestamp is appended to the users username so we do not have a duplice member.

 

If the user name is not found, it is just moved into place here on DBSTalk.

 

 

So...Need help?

 

If you had the same user name on IPTVConnection and a different email address, please let us know so we can merge the accounts here. The one from IPTVConnection would have the time stamp on the end and would be merged into your account here and be removed.

 

If you had an account on IPTVConnection that had a different username and email address and would like them merged, please let us know as we do not allow for multi accounts to be used on the site.

 

 

Thank you.

Read above and see if you meet any of that.  

 

Like, did you use the same user name and the same email address?  If so, you are all set, your posts and content were merged.

 

If you used the same username and a different email address, then we need to merge the account.

As an example of what worked...  I had a different username at IPTV Connection but used the same email... and it looks like everything from both of me merged properly.

 

It sounds like the bulk of the remaining "problems" would be if you signed in at IPTV Connection with a different email address than you used here...  what it means is the forum didn't know you were the same person, so it created the alternate persona (details in David's first post)...  so if you posted on IPTV Connection, just take a look at something you know you posted and see if it is correctly under your DBSTalk member name.  If it is, then you are all set I think.

Well, I see my other ID on some of the old posts, so I guess it didn't merge.

 

Now, if I were to choose to, could I assume that ID (merge everything into it) since there is a close duplicate to this one?

I would need to know the other user name and the one you want to use.  Simple as that.

Hi,

 

I don't think my IPTVConnection account got merged with my DBSTalk account. I'm pretty sure the email addresses match but maybe not...

 

My userid from IPTV was gobeavs http://www.dbstalk.c...516678-gobeavs/

I had the same user ID on both sites. My e-mails may not have matched. I recently changed my DBS Talk e-mail but forgot to update IPTV. Let me know if you need any additional information.

 

Thanks for all your work on these sites!!
