Re: Forum changes...

I'd be very interested to find out how and who the feedback on SPAM is collected and then given to internally @O2. I am assuming this relates to SPAM / Phishing attacks against our webmail customers as in @o2.co.uk customer?

 

Cheers, Marcus

We're mainly talking about forum spam here.

Re: Forum changes...

Thanks for letting no one know, except your 'select few', that this change was going to happen. One minute the old forum was there, next it was gone. Haven't been able to use my old username. Doesn't matter, as I doubt that I will use this forum much any more, nor will most others as they probably won't bother to take the time or go through the hassle of re-registering.

Hi Bambino,

 

We made everyone aware of the forum changes in this thread well in advance. We’ve also reserved a number of existing usernames for our users from our old forum.  So, if you’d like to retain your existing username to match the ‘display name’ in the new O2 Community – just drop me a PM and I’ll get it sorted.

 

Thanks, Abs

Re: Forum changes...

Well I never saw it, and I doubt that many did. This thread certainly wasn't on the page with the latest topics. I don't care about my old username or my 'status' on the forum. Load of old codswallop. What happens to all the old threads? If someone has a query and the answer had been posted in the old forum is there no way to do a search?

We've been talking about these changes since last August:

All the old stuff is here and the forum is searchable.

You can send Abs a PM as suggested here, about half way down.

So this is progress ...? I've lost my old login name and historal posts are somewhere else, and registering or logging in now takes me to the o2 login screen instead.... Then it says it'll send me a verification email which never arrives. Anyway, at least I'm logged in with a new id. Surely there was a way of making this changeover more transaparent and user friendly? Getting abs to sort it out is a kludge, not a proper solution. There are going to be a load of redundant ids on here from now on, and abs is going to be very busy Smiley Frustrated
