BBC iD on blogs update
Tom (whose team are leading the upgrading of BBC blogs to BBC iD) tells me there are no less than seven different systems involved. So it's not suprising that we've had one or two problems as some of you have commented.
However, broadly speaking we're happy. The vast majority of you have successfully switched over to BBC iD and are using it to post comments on BBC blogs.
And just to answer the Phazer, the bugs you identify are not in fact problems with the BBC iD system itself. They're being worked on but they won't hold up the roll out of BBC iD.
We've also increased our support for dealing with your membership queries. So if you're reading this but are still having problems logging in, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And don't forget the help pages for BBC iD as you may find the answer you're looking for there.
Regular readers know that on the Internet blog we love charts and diagrams. The chart below shows new users registering for a BBC iD over last weekend.
The second chart shows the numbers of people logging into BBC iD. It follows the pattern of the first chart but there's also a rise on Monday that's proportionally larger than the registration pattern in the first chart. This is following the switchover of the BBC's blogs from the old membership service to BBC iD that happened early on Monday morning as users wanting to comment upgraded their accounts.
