The new site - issues and the like
Welcome to the new site. We're still tracking a few bugs and server burps on our new live servers (you probably noticed yesterday) but our web team and IT are hard at work on fixing them up (my new least favorite numbers are 5, 0, and 4).
Right now - some of you have not gotten emails (even after checking your junk mail folder) and have gone on to click the lost password link to have it resent. This is currently disabled but will hopefully be fixed today. New user registration is not affected by this.
Some people have also reported difficulty linking their user ID to Windows Live ID. The most important thing you can do before attempting this is to clear your browser's cache and cookies and start fresh. That way you won't accidentally link your mom's Hotmail account to your user ID because she was on the computer right before you.
Also - do not type the word Google into Google or you can literally break the internet.
