Instructions for the reactivation of your old SCS Forum Account

MathiasH wrote on 8/23/2016, 8:56 AM

Hi everybody,

as already announced at magix.info, we'd like to give you the option to continue using your existing accounts.

Here's how it works. Register at vegascreativesoftware.info. As soon as you have entered your first name and surname, you'll be assigned a temporary username. Please do not change this username. You will get your normal SCS username back afterwards. Next, enter the email address you use to register with the SCS forum.

Go to your email inbox. You should see a welcome email with a confirmation link. Click on the link and login into the VEGAS Community. You'll then be automatically redirected to your old account and will get your old username back, along with all your threads and comments.

Here's a little TL;DR

  • Register with the new VEGAS Community
    • Use generated username temporarily
    • Enter old email address
  • Receive welcome email
  • Click activation link
  • Access your migrated account


Edit: Be aware that accounts without posts have not been migrated.

 

Best regards,

Mathias

Did you receive the welcome mail after the registration? You'll find a restore button in that mail...

I am an existing user too, tried registering using my existing email, but it says that the email already is registered.
I have tried the forgotten password option, the forum says that it has send me a new password option.

But nothing comes in, checked my junk box too.
I have registered this account using another email then confirmation did come in via email.

How can I use my previous account? How do I contact support? Do you have chat support like Sony did before?

The button started working only now, before it just took me back to register. Seems OK now, thanks:)

@ken-p: please take a look in your spam folder

Here the same.

No confirmation email and no mail after the attempt to reset the password

m2016 wrote on 8/23/2016, 1:42 PM

Please try to use the password reset function again. You should get your link now.

No issues here at all. All posts imported from the click button within the email. Good job.

The link for the last post ( wrong language, see arrow to pop-up on screenshot) does not work en brings me every time to the first post in stead of the last.

Hmmm... I've done something wrong. I was assigned nickname "jerry-amende".  Can't seem to migrate my old account "amendegw".  What to do?

The migration process is a bit more involved if you already have a Magix account. I got a bit tangled up with what password to use at times: the password when I created the account with the dummy username a la these instructions, the password of my old SCS account or the password of my old Magix account. I presume the Magix account and the forum account are now combined.

PeterDuke wrote on 8/24/2016, 9:32 PM

Jerry's problem could be fixed if there were a link to the user's personal details, but I can't see such a link here. I did see my details during my stumbles earlier on because I changed my password so that I knew what it was for sure. Maybe it was on the Magix web site.

Edit

No, it is not as simple as changing personal details. I just noticed an old post by amendegw so there are currently two accounts for Jerry.

A big thank you to PeterDuke.  I was having problem for the last few days trying to register and move over my SONY Account over to Magix but with no luck.  The instruction to to activate SONY account were confusing.  For example,  I enter my first and last name,  It generated a temp name.  I then enter my email address and created a password and I click register and its failed, saying my email is already exist.  I am thinking maybe because I already previously registered with Magix and have been using the same email account.   So I got stuck.  I contacted support, basely, they gave the same instruction were post here.  But never they never mentioned you have to use your Magix forum account password to activate your SONY account over to Magix.   After reading PeterDuke post,  I was able to sucessfully activated and restores my SONY account.  Man we have many amazing people in the vegas community here always like to share knowledge.  That is why I like Vegas forum so much.

@Buzzdee, Thanks so much whatever you did works like a champ!

I never received the welcome email. No, it was not in my spam folder. The name ken-p is the temporary name that showed up when I initially tried to register. I would really like to recover my old account. Can't you send me the welcome email manually?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Ken
