yes, it was a deliberate decision to make everybody register from anew. In the old forum had thousands of spam accounts, we wanted to get rid of.
We hope, you can understand and that it's not too big of an inconvenience.
Hi guys, thanks for your comments on the topic. We do appreciate your effort in trying to keep this place tidy and clean.
We've considered a few options and a better spam-prevention mechanism are now in place.
we can't be any happier to receive your holiday season greetings and to know that you feel like at home here. We've faced a few changes across the last years and we've tried to manage them limiting side effects to our support capabilities and effectiveness.
In our Team we embrace changes for the better, thinking to the opportunities they might generate rather than to the certainties that they blow away and we'll stand for it all the way long.
We also appreciate, and we are greateful for, the level of contribution that we perceive from You, without which, our community, wouldn't ever been the same.
Best wishes to you and your loved ones looking forward some relax during the Xmas time and an enthusiastic 2020.
Your SDK Team
Ah, that novel!
Yeah, sorry. Not one of my personal highlights. Sometimes answering simple questions can be more difficult than one might expect. Such changes can involve quite a few people and seemingly easy processes can become quite lengthy (up to the point, where you (or rather I) forget about the beginning). And certain topics might be regarded so sensitive, that communication on even remotely related topics can get difficult (e.g. due to legal issues). But then again, in the end it was in my responsibility to gather the info you needed or wanted, and I failed to provide it to you. Or at least provide you with a semi-satisfactory answer without touching things I was not allowed to. Sorry!
And see? I'm pretty sure, my follow up will not make the same mistakes (as he or she is most likely human maybe others...). So, if it's not the same anymore without me, then probably better!
I'm finally glad to state that by upgrading the platform to a more recent version you should be able not only to mark a topic as Solved but also to select the correct post solving the thread.
Please verify on your side with your next-to-come threads and in case report any unexpected behavior.
