So this is something that has been on the backburner for awhile, and Nate has referenced it many times. Well, here you go: People with a Zelda Informer account can now link it with their Disqus account.
Do you have an account with us? Are you logged in? Look at the black bar up top - registration has been open to the public for the past couple weeks, though we haven't talked about it much because this hasn't been ready. Some of you are already on the new forums and already have an account with us. Anyways, commenters, if you're logged in to ZI, you will notice that Disqus has created a new account for you on ZI and logged you into that one instead of your regular Disqus account. If you're new here, then you probably don't need to read much further.
If you've been with us for awhile though, chances are you have a backlog of comments that you want your new profile to show. To do this, you will need to log in to your old Disqus account on Disqus.com, check your settings there to make sure your email matches the one you registered on ZI with, and make sure you've got that email verified. Then follow the instructions for account merging on the Disqus Support portal.
A Zelda Informer account is not necessary, however! You can continue to be a guest to the site and post under your existing Disqus account, or still as a guest through Disqus itself! However, if you want to contribute to our new Wiki and Forums, then we encourage you to go back up top and register to get access to our wider community.
Officially this user system is still in "Open Beta" status, as we're still ironing out bugs. Apologies for the slow development on this, but being the only tech guy here and juggling real-world responsibilities, things tend to take awhile to get done. If any of you are experts with ExpressionEngine and the CodeIgniter framework, contact me directly at email@example.com, because I'm looking for assistants!
