I've missed receiving my Home Theater Forum email alerts, while I've been waiting for tech support to try to recover my user name (I'm currently listed as Guest__*) AND post count, as they both unfortunately got lost with HTF's changeover. At the time, I was told they could only guarantee that my post count would be recovered. It has now been a week since I've contacted them, and I still haven't received any news! Am very frustrated by this regurgitatin' development, LOL!
I would have edited my above post to reflect that except apparently, with my current status as a Guest member, I CAN'T! AARRGGHH!!!
The new website made it unable to log in using the account username and password and unable to request a new password while using the the account username (at least in my case) the trick is to use your account's email address to request a new password and login using your email and new password. Only then was I able to resurrect my old account and make my username "valid" again.
As for editing posts, the option is available once you refresh the page. For some reason, the option isn't there immediately after posting.
