WHAT’S ALL THIS, THEN?

Scott welcom

So you’re here, and you’re thinking, “what the eff is going on, man?” Can’t say I blame you. This is the new site that we’ve been threatening you with for weeks and weeks and weeks. And weeks.

We finally made the transition, and like all great wars, there was a significant amount of collateral damage. In our case, due to database issues, we lost somewhere in the vicinity of 120 comments and replies, and we still don’t know if the forums took a hit. If your lovely, insightful comments are gone, well, we’re sorry about that.

YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, BUT YOU CAN CHANGE IT BACK:
Because we’re on a new database, the site will make you change your password. But if you do that, log in, then go to your profile page, you can change it right back again. And yes, I know your password is “myunderwears,” and that’s fine.

ORDERING & BUYING: NOW YOU GOT TO SIGN IN
Our eCommerce site is with our old vendor, BackMyBook. So when you click on ordering links, you’re actually bouncing to another site, and you’ll have to sign in. But, buy crap! Because we sell crap! It’s a match made in heaven!

THINGS WILL BE BROKEN AND THINGS WILL BREAK
No, that’s the name of Scott’s biopic on Ghengis Kahn (in which he stars and directs, after growing a wicked pencil-stache), it means this site is going to be gunked up for a little bit as we sort things out. If you find something that don’ work, mang, email media@scottsigler.com. Be patient with us, because we are delicate souls. You know how we do.

    My brain just exploded- it’s not nice to make an old lady (58) go thru all these effing steps just to get into your always delightfully bizarre website- I wish a nasty alien virus on you, like one that makes cats fart at you for no earthly reason. So there.

    Does anyone know where I can download my previous ebook purchases now? When I go to scottsigler.affabl.com I don’t see any place for me to sign in. The books are no longer under my account on the new site.

      So sorry about that! We promised we’d break some things, and we delivered!

      We just put a post (with photos!) at the site to help get things sorted out. You can see that here.

      Also, here are the steps:

      1. Go to scottsigler.com, try to log in.
      2. The next screen will say “ERROR: Incorrect username or password.”
      3. On that screen, click “Lost your password?” at the bottom.
      4. On the next screen, enter your username or password, then hit the button that says “get new password.”
      5. You’ll get an email with a temp password (one that actually works, thank you very much).
      6. Log in, then change your password in your user profile back to whatever you like.
      7. Profit!

      Thanks, and sorry once again,
      A

        Thanks A… I’m in and the site no longer considers me a suspected Spammer, although I must admin I felt a bit emboldened by the accusation.

    Not sure if this will happen to everyone but wanted to leave a note here. I received an email with a new password that didn’t work. It was an easy enough fix, I just went through the reset process and was fine, Just an FYI.
