Ok, so we've been moved... If you're having problems logging in, go to the log in page, then use the bottom box and enter your email to get a temporary login link sent to you. Use that to log in, then go to your user page by clicking on your name at the top of the page, then use the 'user tools' dropdown, select 'authentication', then add your openID URL again. Then remove your original openID URL. Then you should be good, fingers crossed. *(If you still have problems, just email [
firstname.lastname@example.org) and the OSQA guys will be glad to assist you.)*
Many apologies for the lack of warning about the move to OSQA. On Friday afternoon I took the decision to switch the ASK.SSC site from StackExchange to OSQA. Prior to requesting the switch to go live over the weekend we’d been working with Rick Ross at OSQA to get a test version up (well Rick did all the work, we just supplied the data dump) and we then spent a couple of weeks looking it over and satisfying ourselves internally that it was a platform fit to host the site. What I then failed to do was open that test site out to you guys who are the lifeblood of the site and get your input and feedback about it before going ahead with the switch. I’m very sorry about that. It was, as Phil correctly divined, a sudden rush of blood to the head. If it’s any consolation, I got my just desserts yesterday when I had to spend my birthday in a house full of German football fans. The reasons why we think this is the right move for ASK.SSC are principally these: • When StackExchange announced their decision to change from a commercial licence model for SE to a community licence model it was made clear to us that we would not be able to continue with an ad-supported model for ASK.SSC. A later statement indicated that continuing as is on the SE v1.0 platform would depend on a decision at a later date on what would be deemed a sufficiently high traffic threshold. • We therefore looked at all of the Q&A platforms available and concluded that OSQA was the best option: - It is the most robust technically and has the widest adoption of the alternatives - It’s open source, which means that the option is there to host ourselves on SSC if we should want to - Rick Ross and his team at OSQA have development resources in to add features and extend the platform in response to user feedback and requests. Long term our aim for ASK.SSC is that it should grow and be extended in directions that the users want. There are a lot of different ways that people like to obtain and share technical knowledge and ASK.SSC is one of them. That’s why we set it up last September and why we want to cultivate it so it delivers as much as it potentially can. Again, sorry for not involving you guys, the real gardeners on the site, before we switched the greenhouse. From now on I’ll know better.
Just looking around the new ASKSSC and I am now the owner of an "Unknown" badge. Not sure the upgrade was 100% successful! Its going to take some getting used to. I'm already missing my reputation, karma sounds a little weird. The commandment to "Please only give an answer, no discussions." seems odd too. Did we(*) get any warning about the upgrade? (*) - anyone --- [EDIT] I seem to have lost my favourite and ignored tags settings ...
Have noticed similar issues to Fatherjack - once I got in that is! - I have lost my moderator status - I'm sure activity from late afternoon June 25th hasn't been imported - I have 4 unknown badges! Nobody I have spoken to knew anything about the changes coming..... Strange time to implement it too, just before the weekend, presumably nobody is around from Red Gate to comment for a couple of days! Hopefully some styling can be applied to this site, getting it somewhere near what we've all spent 9 months trying to build!
My apologies to everyone. I was unaware this was happening, and am still not clear why. Myself and the rest of the publishing team received no notice this was happening, so we couldn't make an announcement. Again, I apologize and as soon as I know more I'll post on this site and the main SQLServerCentral site.
OK, now I try to edit something and I get > AttributeError at /answers/7110/edit/ > 'NoneType' object has no attribute > 'revision' Request Method: GET Request > URL:

Q was about favourite SSMS shortcuts No idea where to send this so here you are, may the force be with you.
Was going to add a comment to my own question but cant so thats one thing more ... Also, where's the envelope gone to tell me I have comments/questions/answers/rep added since last visit. Short of filling my inbox with chaff how do I keep up ?
I think I've found another interesting CSS issue... If I reduce my FF window (and the same occurs with Google Chrome) from the maximum allowable on this monitor (a mere 1280x1024), the stuff in the left menu bar / graphic overlaps the question / answer / comment window... I know... "Well stop doing that, then"...
