What is this next phase? Is everything ready for migration?

There should be an initial transitioning period soon, correct.
I guess that would answer the question. I think the next phase would be the migration procedure itself (resetting passwords by emails and etc...)

If they published this news, it means the new forum is almost done and most of us obviously use working emails.
Just hope multiple account user for signature campaign/sell still have their working emails  Tongue

Maybe we can expect better security such as 2FA and working secret question.

Good, can't wait for the migration!

I'm willing to bet the opposite, most accounts do not have working emails, thus the warning...

Better security will most likely be present, this is the Bitcoin Forum after all... Smiley

That's good that this reminder has been set in place. As for exemple, I don't have a valid working email address. Until when can I create one ?

You'll have to link your account to a new email I presume, just create one, no ?
Or do you need access to the old one to link the account to a new one?

Good luck with that any way but for the rest of us this is exciting news Cheesy

Yeah, that's a simple process, but I feel very lazy. In my mind, creating an email address is associated with a big pain Tongue. Anyway, I'll do it when I'll have some time. Before which point must it be done ? I wouldn't like to lose my account Undecided...

2FA is only for people who can't keep their passwords safe. It should be optional. I don't see a plus in requiring a working e-mail address. It reduces privacy.

I fear the new forum will make intensive use of JavaScript, which is a nightmare for any speed / security oriented user.

I assume the answer to that is as soon as possible.

No, 2FA is for everyone (at least for everyone worried with security).

You can have an anonymous email address and only use an address for the forum, many people do that (hence the warning for verifying if the email address is valid. And because many people use a fake one too).

You can already see on the beta website how the forum will be (more or less). I've tried it a few times and I don't think it's slow.

According to this you won't need a valid email to move your account to the finished version, only to test the beta.

Although I'd check that with a staff member before relying on it in case things have changed.



err.... any way to get my password reset without an email?

No. You could create a separate account using a throwaway email service.

With the final version, there will be a way to move your account without having a valid email.

Well, unamis76 and you don't agree. I'm not at all interested in testing the beta or whatever else. I'll move to the "new" forum when that'll be mandatory. I hope that at that time I will be able to use a throwaway email account as theymos said.

After that quote from theymos I guess we can reach the conclusion that valid emails are only needed to test the beta, so I guess you're fine Smiley
