This post was originally made on Tiki Central
I just rolled out the biggest change to Ooga-Mooga so far, but it’s largely behind the scenes.
As I mentioned earlier, requiring new Ooga-Mooga users to sign up for Tiki Central was sometimes confusing, so I’ve been working on detangling the two sites. I have now finished separating Ooga-Mooga from Tiki Central, and a Tiki Central account is no longer required to sign up on Ooga-Mooga.
This, of course, means bupkis to anyone here [on Tiki Central]. This change is more for people who don’t even know about Tiki Central yet. But I wanted to keep you in the loop, in case anything is wonky. I’ve made some very substantial changes to Ooga-Mooga (mostly under the hood) — please let me know if anything isn’t working right for you.
I’ve already told you about the new Messaging and Profile systems that replace the ones we were piggy-backing on Tiki Central. There are a couple more changes that are relatively minor (from where you’re sitting, anyway!). We still wanted to keep some of the neat functionality that came from your Ooga-Mooga and Tiki Central accounts being linked — notably, the link to your Ooga-Mooga collection from your posts on TC, and a link to your Tiki Central profile from your Ooga-Mooga profile. Now that a TC account isn’t required, you can initiate this linking yourself from the Account Settings page on Ooga-Mooga. Anyone who has signed up for Ooga-Mooga prior to today is already linked up, but any new Ooga-Mooga users will have the option of doing that in Account Settings.
Please let me know if anything seems amiss!
