The SQL Anywhere forum will be migrating to sqlanywhere-forum.sap.com on Saturday March 29, 2014. Existing questions, answers, comments, users, reputation, etc. will be retained and aside from some cosmetic changes there will be no significant changes to the web site. Any links and bookmarks to the existing sqlanywhere-forum.sybase.com site will automatically be redirected to the new site.
On the day of the migration, both sites will be shut down for several hours while the data is moved.
Note that the new site is already up and running and you can head over there and check it out. If you have trouble logging in there please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to get you fixed up. Please feel free to add questions and answers for testing purposes (there are already a few such questions there) but anything added there will be deleted when the migration happens. If you have a legitimate SQL Anywhere question for which you need a real answer, ask it here on this site.
Also, please note that email has been disabled on the new site so you cannot use the temporary login feature, and you will not receive daily digests or notifications of any kind. This is only during the beta period.
What must you do to ensure that you can log in once the migration is complete? See answer below.
There is really only one thing you need to do in order to make sure that you can log in once the migration is complete, and that's to make sure your email address is correct. Click on your login name at the very top of the screen (next to the Logout, About, and FAQ links), then click "User Tools" and then "edit profile". Make sure the email address is correct, and click Update.
Note that logging into the forum through the MySybase provider will no longer be available in the new forum. Instead, you will be able to log in using your SCN (SAP Community Network) user ID. This is entirely optional. In order to make this work, you need to have an SCN account but you do not need to add a new provider. You simply have to make sure that your email address in your SCN account matches the one in your forum account.
Once the new forum is available, you have three options to log in for the first time:
Once you're logged into the new forum, go to your user page by clicking on your name at the top of the page and then click "User tools" and "authentication settings". If you have a provider that begins with "https://www.google.com", click "remove" since that provider will no longer work. If you still want to use Google as a provider, you can then click "Add new provider" and then click the Google logo on the next page. If you have a provider marked "Unknown", you can remove that as well; that is for the MySybase option which is no longer available.

Will our forum points be applied to our SCN point total?
Perhaps at a discount? e.g., 32767 forum points for one SCN point.
