The User ID emailed to me is useless...

...or so I thought until I realised that the User ID in the email (begins with 2 alpha characters followed by seven numerics) bears ABSOLUTELY NO relation to the ID I need to use to log in! I can't see ANYWHERE on this site where the User ID you sent me would be used. What is the point of THAT?
Bizarre...truly, truly bizarre...

Re: The User ID emailed to me is useless...

Hi,

Welcome to the forums!

The user id that you speak of is the IT Resource Centre ID http://forums.itrc.hp.com beginning with either a BR or a CA depending on which site you registered with.

As it stands there are separate logins for the ITRC Forums and these Business Support Centre Forums, they will in time be combined into the one login.

Hope this helps,

Gary

Re: The User ID emailed to me is useless...

So, URLs beginning 'http://forums1.itrc.hp.com' are ITRC forum URLs? Like this one that I'm typing to you on? No, can't be, because you say "there are separate logins for the ITRC Forums and *THESE* Business Support Centre Forums..."

I had no idea I'd elected to join a ITRC forum - I've only ever used these here...

No need to reply. I now where I am now. I think.
