This video featuring ProBoards' Ryan Roos
explains how to login if you already have an account but haven't visited since the v5 upgrade. It also explains how to register on ProBoards and Stepping Out of Squalor if you have never been here before.
If you were forced to pick a new username because the old username was "taken", click this link in the bottom right hand corner of your screen:
On the 'Select Account' page click the link near the bottom that says 'Link another forum account'
On the next page, type your old SOS username and your old SOS password
It SHOULD allow you access with your old account.
If it doesn't, go back to the same screen, fill in your SOS username and click 'Forgot your password?' to have ProBoards send you a password reset to get in. The will need to send an email to the address on your old v4.5 profile. If you don't find it, check your spam filter. If it isn't there, add firstname.lastname@example.org
to your email white list and try again.
If your email account is different from the one posted on your v4.5 profile and is no longer valid, you'll need to create a new account on Stepping Out of Squalor. Let the mods know your old and current usernames and we will match your old post count and place a link on your old account to your new one.
