Hi all.

Whilst the majority of problems the change to the new site has incurred have been fixed, there’s one outstanding one that no matter what I try, simply can’t resolve.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but. those of you that previously commented on the site using Facebook Connect, need to create an entirely new account as the old ones won’t work properly.

Once you’ve done this, if you send me a message with your full name in it, I can locate your old account and attribute your old comments to the new one.

To prevent any further problems that the Facebook Connect accounts may cause, I’ll be deleting them all in 7 days, so anyone that hasn’t created a new account in this time will find there old one has vanished.

Apologies to anyone that this may effect, but I’ve run out of alternative options.

UPDATE: It seems those that had been using FB-Connect to logjn were experiencing further troubles creating a new account. I’ve therefore had no alternative but to remove all the FB-Connect accounts. All the comments made by users using this service have been credited to a dummy account (unregistered)

This should bring an end to the problems people were experiencing and you should all now be able to create a new account. Apologies for the messing about, and thanks for your patience. If anyone has any further problems, please let me know by commenting below or emailing me; admin@thescratchingshed.com

    I’ll delete the old account now mate. The username might not be able to contain spaces either.

    Hi again Richard, I’ve removed your previous email from the database so it won’t clash. Try registering again now and let me know how you get on.

    Hi Colin, you’re posting as an unregistered user. You need to create an account to get the full benefits of the new site.

      @mojoluafc – Haha, finally! I expected the odd teething problem, but never thought FB-Connect would be an issue. Damn you Facebook…

    By the way, if anyone uses an iPhone there is a great Telegraph World cup application for free.
    I do not however recommend Hardys Mill cellar Chardonnay too sweet, don’t think it has any Chardonnay grape in it .

    @mikelufc Yep, it was a great race and a great victory for Britain. Loving the new all-English McLaren line-up!

    PS. I have that app too. Highly recommended.
