    History lost

    I recently upgraded to Ubuntu One to improve the update process, and while I used the same email address, I changed my password to match a new installation. While I don't have a huge amount of posts on this forum they do date back a few years and one is current. Is there any way I can point those past posts back to this live account?

    Regards
    Rob

    I am somewhat mystified as to what you are asking for. The account you are posting from was created on 18th September 2015, nearly six years ago, and you have made 12 posts in support forums in the past in addition to this one. Are you saying that you had a previous and different forum account?

    This mystifies me even more. What exactly do you mean by upgrading to Ubuntu One to improve the update process? If this is to do with a new installation of Ubuntu, it won't have anything to do with your forum account. As far as the forum is concerned Ubuntu One is simply used for log in purposes, whether from an Ubuntu system, or any other operating system.

    It just seemed like too much of a coincidence that after upgrading to Ubuntu One I could no longer see any of my old posts (I also changed by login credentials to match). In doing this I (wrongly) assumed I had somehow re-mapped away from my old posts. I can see them now and don't quite understand why I couldn't yesterday, sorry to bother you with this. What I meant by the update process is I understand that if you have an Ubuntu One account Livepatch will assist by not requiring a reboot in many cases after updates, this appears to be the case.
