Again, if you're having trouble seeing Other Crap please state your circumstances explicitly. There are 2 different cases:

a) If you weren't previously paid up, you could see it but not post in it. Now you can't see it at all; that'll be the case until we figure out another way to pass the hat.
b) If you were previously paid up and could post there pre-move, you're supposed to be able to do so now.

There are so many people in category (a) that I'm not bothering to look at posts by people who say "I can't see Other Crap" unless they also say "I was paid up before and was able to post in P&G/V&N/etc". Nip may be kinder than me.

Nip and everybody- love you guys and the site. been lurking since 2000, and the last year, being laid up a little
without work- I did the incredible- read every post of the Mega thread, including the legal thread.
Thanks from Queens, only eight miles from the Terlet.
@PLagosi You are all set

Can't see them, and I think I'm all paid up.

Edit: Just checked my old email account that SoSH is linked to, and I got a renewal notice today (I think I am set to expire on the 14th). So I guess, just hang tight until the renewal process is figured out?
@RFDA2000 you should be all set

Same problem with Other Crap not being viewable. My sub should be good until Jan, so it's not that. I also did a full browser cache clear, as suggested. If it helps, I'm on mobile and did my first login via mobile.

This setup is noticeably faster. I like it.
@mostman
you
are
good

Now that my username no longer appears on a single line of text - and looks positively goofy - is it possible for me to change it to "Conigliaro's Potential", or is that sort of thing frowned upon? (TBH that's what I always wanted it to be anyway, but when I joined the site for some reason all of my attempts to use apostrophes failed.)

I'm rather lost - in life, never mind on the internet - at the moment without the SoSH access to which I'm accustomed, but I'm just about managing to be grown up about it. Really looking forward to seeing what the final version of the new site looks like.
@ConigliarosPotential You are all set, and also have a shiny new avatar to play with

Will there be a way for cheapskates like me to pay up and restore read access to Other Crap? I read earlier in the thread that the sub system is dead, but I'd like to throw SoSH some scratch. I was going to re-up this weekend when Nip said he was sending the proceeds to Harrison. (Seriously though, no hurry. This is an incredible volunteer effort, praise be. Just hoping it'll be an option in the future).
@Scott Cooper's Grand Slam yes there will be, and for now you have gotten past the border without proper procedure, and for those troubles I have given you a new avatar

I'm in this boat too. Will gladly pay up to remain a part of this amazing group. Regrettably, I didn't pay up in the past only because I couldn't figure out how to, and didn't make it a high enough priority.
@Rusty Gate well until we find a way for you to chuck a few bucks into the hat, you shall keep this avatar m'lady. And you are fixed

Hi. Add me to the list who can't see other crap. No avatar. Used to be able to post in P&G, root of all evil, etc. Not sure if I'm supposed to be able to see those or not now? Thanks for the hard work on the redesign.
@loafnut you were already all set, and for my troubles you have a new avatar. With a message to your mom

I was looking at the usernames below the avatars and thinking that the greyed out font was tough to get noticed, especially when the member didn't have an avatar. Now that's bold black is so much better. Thanks.

Edit: Perhaps you should experiment with an alternative to the generic blue avatar?
