  • Work around for the horrible new Wiki login that hardly ever works. DiltsGD 23:22, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

There was an issue nearly two weeks ago when they first tried to introduce FamilySearch Account, but since last Thursday everything has worked perfectly. It may be a side issue due to tonight's extreme sluggishness or outright stalling when trying to load a wiki page, I've also noted this happening on other places such as nFS over the last few days as well. Hopefully, this will be resolved before the next user group meeting, which will not be the 29th, but on January 5. JamesAnderson 02:33, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

  • New login problems (see discussion page)
  • Opening the edit box problems (see discussion page)
  • Is there any way to get my User:DiltsGD page back?
  • On a related note... Can someone explain the need to initiate a new user page?  I just realized that the reason I was not getting notification of edits to Illinois pages was not because no one was editing them.  Somehow my lengthy watch list disappeared (possibly when someone created a new user page for me when I became a moderator?).  I would appreciate understading where my watch list went, and how I might restore it.

As your old user page is still found at User:Diltsgd, I'm guessing that you've not combined your accounts yet, or have you tried and come across errors? --Steve 19:52, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
