If at first you don't succeed…
So it’s been a busy 24 hours at Galaxy Zoo. As we outlined in the earlier posts were working hard on unifying the Galaxy Zoo and Galaxy Zoo forum accounts. During the merge we had to disable the forums and new registrations on the Zoo so that we could be sure of exactly who was registered where.
So 24 hours later and with some tired eyes I’m sorry to report that we ran into a few technical difficulties with the merge. Specifically, the tests we had in place for checking the post-merge user accounts showed us that we had some problems. It’s of prime importance to us that we get this right and once we’d done the merge we weren’t completely satisfied that things were exactly as they should be.
So what next?
We’ll by now you should see that the forums are back up again as are new registrations on the Zoo and so we’re back to how things have always been. We’re going to review what happened yesterday, figure out what went wrong and then have a go again in the next week or so. Watch this space!
